Slow functions, change default region?

I am using the free tier to evaluate Netlify and am finding that function calls are incredibly slow (~2s per request). It seems like this is due to my database being hosted in Europe (spinning up a scratch database in the US sped things up massively).

Is there any way of setting a default region? I’ve had a look at the docs but couldn’t see anything related.


I think, you can’t manually change the region, but in some cases a support team member can change it for you. It’s mentioned here: Functions overview | Netlify Docs
