Speed of loading issues. Speed

I am in Townsville, Qld, Australia.

I went with Cloudflare because they apparently operated out of Brisbane, Qld, Australia.

I went to this site, to speed up loading, which is an issue with my Weebly site. I went to Cloudflare because it have servers in Brisbane, Qld, which is the closest I could see. It appears that my site is being worked on, stored, through America, in the other hemisphere, on the other side of the world.

Given that my client base is Qld, Australia, and rankings count load times in ms, how do I change that?

Of course this is presuming that the website will start working, through Clouflare sometime!

Just a note, site now working, after a prompt response through here, advising me to change a setting.
Now only have above issue to work out.
