London VPS with account connected to an exchange in London delay is: 166.64ms


Good day members,
I thought that a VPS in London will have a much lower latency in ms than the connection from my PC in Johannesburg South Africa.
Latency from my PC (Laptop) is 188.28. During the process of creating the VPS in London the website indicated a small two figure latency in ms.

What can I do to get that low 24.28 ms latency for London?

Thanking in advance for the help.
