lichess.org

pings on different chess sites

I know that both the pull down menu of my profile and lichess.org/lag show my ping.

But I wanted to test it myself and compare it with another site. In Windows7 this works with pressing simultaneously the windows button and "R", then typing "cmd" and then "ping lichess.org" or "ping other chess site".

My results on a Saturday morning (I am from middle europe):

chess.com 187 ms
lichess.org 27 ms

Wow!

Its not always that perfect on lichess.org but at the moment I am very glad of course..

My average for lichess is 15 ms, for chess.com it's 153 ms. What's remarkable is that I got 4 ms for chess24.com. I guess they have a server really close to me.

lichess has servers in France, chess.com probably somewhere in USA (i assume) so this might be 1 reason, but chess24 impresses me , does anyone know where they have servers?

nothing magic about it, chess24.com has the server in my neighbour country Germany just some 100 km's away
