My droplet to my pc ping is same as my pc to my dropley = 80ms see link below for traceroutes. first one is my pc to my droplet second is my pc to speedtest image

Can you try a ping from frankfurt droplet to your PC? Also, a traceroute from your pc to your droplet and then from your pc to the speedtest. At least then you’ll know if you’re comparing apples to apples (same number of hops).

Yes my node is in Frankfurt. I have firewall but no any difference on or off - same pings happen Also i have a same VM on google cloud (Frankfurt). when i try to ping, i get same ping as ( = 59ms so from my pc to google Frankfurt VM ping = 59ms from my pc to = 59ms from my pc to my Frankfurt Droplet = 80ms
