AWS Workspaces Latency

Hello AWS Experts! First and foremost, if you have stumbled upon my inquiry and are ready to aid me in resolving the issue, I appreciate you. My company has established an AWS Workspaces environment in the Virginia region. The Workspaces service is located in two private subnets within our Virginia VPC. When a U.S.-based user connects to the Workspaces environment, they do not deal with latency issues. Additionally, from Workspaces, the user will connect to a private EC2 instance using AWS System Manager (SSM) port forwarding. The user deals with slight latency when port forwarding/RDP into the instance. If there is a way to increase network speeds for SSM port forwarding, please inform me. Furthermore, this is where your phenomenal expertise is most needed; our users in Bulgaria experience high latency when attempting to connect to their Workspaces and even higher when trying to use SSM to connect to their EC2 instance. When a Bulgarian user uses Workspaces, their round trip time averages around 150ms. I had them test their local network bandwidth, which most averaged around 84 to 120Mbps download speeds and 140 to 160Mbps upload speeds. Additionally, they checked their "connection status..." from the following website: The site stated that Frankfurt provided the best connection; however, we do not want to create an entirely new VPC in the Frankfurt region for Workspaces. And have our customers question why a European IP is trying to connect to their assets. A VPN may be a possibility, but we're hoping for a better solution. I have tried the following, which non proved to improve network speeds for U.S. or Bulgarian members. - Established an Internal Load Balancer - Established VPC Endpoints - Established Global Accelerator So, how could one increase network speeds to Workspaces and SSM port forwarding? Thank you!
