I was looking at the new google page service for caching and speeding up websites. That sounds really handy, since my server's in the US having static resources and even some generated html cached in New Zealand would probably give the website a good speedup. That sounds easier than manually setting up a New Zealand web host and configuring a CDN.
When I used the google pagespeed testing service, testing from the US and Asia, I found it actually slowed the site down. They probably have bigger pipes to the US than us though, so the results may be different in practice.
Does google have servers in New Zealand?
