After the publication of this article hundreds of Japanese people started installing the Snowflake WebExt (yay!), but despite having an Internet service that's orders of magnitudes better than the average American household, the distance between then and the nl snowflake bridge seriously impacts the throughput, so much that some snowflake proxies from Japan - despite having more than 20MB/s upload/download - can't offer a download speed bigger than 150KiB/s. What if there were for instance 5 snowflake bridges in different geographical locations in the world and the broker associated with each snowflake proxy the nearest snowflake bridge and sent this information to the user (based on GeoIP, of course, not perfect but better than the status quo)?
