Page load times in different countries
Hi Dreamhosters,

Recently I started collecting page load timings with Google Analytics. I was generally quite pleased with the results which tended to very roughly correlate with each country's technological maturity (if there is such a thing!). I was surprised to see, however, very slow load times for Australia and France. Given that all the timings are coming from the same pages, and at least for Australia there are enough data points to believe that the time reported is real, I must conclude that there is a great amount of latency between DH and Australia.

A sample of the results are below. Has anyone else noticed latency issues in Australia and/or France? Any ideas on how to improve those timings? I'm not too concerned with Jordan & South Africa (nothing personal, of course!) but I'd expect the infrastructure in France and Australia to support faster load times

Code:
