I will be responsible for a project in Uganda where we will run a web application directed to consumers. The internet there can be pretty unreliable at times and often slow. Therefore I am wondering if it is better to host the site in Uganda (somewhere reliable perhaps?) or to simply host it in Europe.

I am looking at the pros and cons and find a host in europe to be the best alternative since it would probably be more reliable but with a slight loss in speed due to the distance, a small fraction of a second I assume?

What are you guys thoughts on this?

What would you recommend?
