speed test for server so customers now which is fastest
visual speed test of servers so you can pick the best
Problem with this is groupthink - if we all see the fastest and connect, the system shifts so the fast system now becomes overloaded. We will all be connected to the slowest, or we start behaving like 5-year olds and all running after the ball (fastest system). That's why we should have load balancing, and be assigned to the least used server in the location (or city) we want to connect to. Let the system do what it should do best - load balance: humans are not good at that kind of predective decision making.
