As a developer based in Europe, I can easily say that the ping we get here (from both N. America and Asia servers) is not exactly ideal. I’m consistently experiencing ping of over 1500 ms, which may not sound that bad, but for cases where rapid response is critical, this is most certainly suboptimal.
For example, if a user in the USA connects to existing servers, they will have a significantly lower ping than someone in Europe. The same applies for Asia. I believe creating servers in Europe would be a great step forward in asserting Replit’s global position.
