It lies approximately 4200 miles away from the server location (Ireland) and such a long distance can negatively affect website speed, as it takes some time for data to travel back and forth between those places. That’s why one of the best ways to speed up Lite.facebook.com page load time for the majority of users is moving the server to United States or just closer to the user base.
