I am from a European country, and usually the circuits created by Tor include nearby European countries (although Tor sometimes chooses nodes from remote countries, but this is very rare). My question is: does Tor choose nodes from nearby countries by default?
I understand that maybe this is due to latency: if I am in a European country, and Tor always creates circuits like: Argentina - Azerbaijan - South Africa, the connection will probably go very slowly.
So, does Tor choose nodes from nearby countries by default?
Thanks in advance.
