[MSDN Redirect] Virtual Machine - connection bars

romungi-MSFT 43,451 Reputation points Microsoft Employee

I just got a VM and I'm keep getting 1-2 out of 4 bars and a slow (lagging) experience. I'm in Australian and my VM is in the US.

I have 140mb/sec internet at home.

How do I improve my bars on my VM to get a faster experience so that I'm not lagging when I web browse and do other tasks on my VM.

Please note that I'm not a technical person, so you will need to give you answer in lay people's language.

    If it has 1 to 2 bars, Then its a bandwidth problem.

    Moving the VM to a region in Australia will improve the performance.

    Choose a region which is close to your Home.

    Australia has these regions.

    Australia Central, Australia Central 2, Australia East, Australia Southeast
