SFO seems the logical choice, but I get considerably worse response times between Mexico and SFO than between Sweden and AMS. Mexico/SFO are no doubt much farther apart than Sweden/AMS, and I imagine also more congested, but I had hoped for similar response times anyway (wishful thinking).
A rather simple (and same) PHP script that has an internal execution time of ~5 ms: Sweden/AMS: 30-50 ms Mexico/SFO: 110-160 ms
Both servers run the same plan ($20).
Any other datacenter that’s proven to be better?
Is there any data on this for different combinations?
