I am looking to sign up with a NextCloud provider to host and manage my NextCloud but I live in the US which isn’t known for its stance on privacy. I wondered if I would see a degradation of service if I use a server in the EU or should I just stick with a server that is closer to my location and cross my fingers?
I imagine there would be more lag if the server is farther from me but would that lag outweigh the usefulness of NextCloud? I plan to use NextCloud as part of a backup and syncing strategy and wouldn’t need constant read and writes to the server.
Anyone with an opinion one way or the other on where my server’s location should be?
