Please, we need a sao paulo datacenter… 150-170ms it’s not good enough.

Ping times from Sao Paulo: <br> <br>AMS1: Average = 228ms <br>AMS2: Average = 244ms <br>NY1: Average = 156ms <br>NY2: Average = 162ms <br>SFO1: Average = 229ms <br>SGP1: Average = 415ms <br> <br>Brgds Patrick

Try running a speedtest to see which gives you the best. <br> <br>AMS1: http://speedtest-ams1.digitalocean.com/ <br>AMS2: http://speedtest-ams2.digitalocean.com/ <br>NY1: http://speedtest-ny1.digitalocean.com/ <br>NY2: http://speedtest-nyc2.digitalocean.com/ <br>SFO1: http://speedtest-sfo1.digitalocean.com/ <br>SGP1: http://speedtest-sgp1.digitalocean.com/ <br> <br>You can also ping the hostnames to measure the latency.

Current average ping times from Sao Paulo:

Hi Bryan! Thank you very much.

The closest location would be New York. Next up would be either San Fransisco or Amsterdam, depending on where the user(s) are in Brazil. Though the difference is likely negligible in that case.

Hi JT, <br> <br>Thanks for the fast reply! <br>Problem is I’m not from Brazil but am building a website for Brazilian audience. <br>What else could I do to find out which region is the closest? <br> <br>Thanks, <br>Michael
