From computer1, I've used a national ISP's DNS (ISP is called Free).
I'm on a computer2 now using a different (unknown) provider (still in France) and now I'm hitting the Nothern Europe server.
So it might well be the DNS.

Interesting, I'm in the south of France and I'm hitting your "Noth Central US" server.
While it's possible, I find it hard to believe that my connection is faster, the latency between Europe in general and US is on the order of ~150ms while reaching sites in Europe usually takes on the order of ~40ms.
Just letting you know that you might want to revise your algorithm
