rsync transfer speed: same country vs other country

by Fluffy   Last Updated May 15, 2019 17:04 PM

Does proximity of one server to another affect the overall transfer speed on a large number of small files?

Say I have a server with a million small files in Germany, would it be considerably faster to transfer them (using rsync) to another server in Germany vs, say, Finland? Or it only affects latency?
