There is no speed penalty, the routing is the same, packets don't take a detour to the country they are registered to.

Is there a network access speed penalty when using geolocated IPs? If I understand correctly I can order a UK-based IP for my server in one of the French data centers. It'd be lovely, but will it affect routing to my server - that is all packets to that IP will go through the UK, like from Spain, or this is somehow virtual, and there is no speed penalty? Thanks.
