Visitor World Map

Country of origin for 91.7% of all visits is Australia. It lies approximately 8240 miles away from the server location (United States) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up Skynews.com.au page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to Australia or just closer to the user base.
