Hi there,

For serving static files quicker, I would recommend using a CDN like Cloudflare or using the DigitalOcean Spaces with CDN enabled:

https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/spaces/how-to/enable-cdn/

That way your static content will be served from multiple locations reducing the overall latency.

Hope that this helps!
