Lagging/slow in Asia

I did most of the modules in EU and no problems what so ever, but in Asia the academy platform is sooooooooooo slow and lagging. Almost to the extend I would say don’t bother signing up if you are in this region. Interacting with a terminal or server with 1-2 sec delay is painful.

However, being almost done with the track - has anyone else had similar issues and how did you solve them? I get some (minimal) improvement using a VPN to the UK.
