WVD Experience Estimator Tool
This experience estimator tool is pretty interesting one. It might be able to help to understand the current experience of WVD VMs. More details – https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/virtual-desktop/assessment/
- You can estimate the connection round trip time (RTT) from your current location to each Azure region in which you are able to deploy virtual machines.

NOTE! – I’m sure these numbers are going to change soon when Microsoft will have management planes and RD gateways around the world.
