Abysmal performance on free tier (Django + Postgres)

I’m on the free tier right now, running a Django server. My concern is that the latency is so high, it takes a few seconds just to serve some static html (no with Database queries). Is this something I can expect to get better when upgrading? Could this be a known Django related problem?

Hi Marc,

I am not sure if the latency you are experiencing is necessarily related to the free tier as there are quite a few factors that can cause the increase (distance to the server, closest PoP, number of hops, etcs). Can you give me some more insight on how your application is set up i.e. which region it is in?
