Those numbers sound quite reasonable (but I'd be interested to hear what
others say), and I doubt more CPU/memory will help. You could try
setting up a t2.micro instance in AWS's us-east region (east-1 is
N.Virginia, east-2 is Ohio) which might give you more of a straight line
for your data trip to Chicago? Or compare with Digital Ocean regions in
New York?
