Ya it will, we may use country specific or zone servers, either will work. You can browse the link provided above, it tells how many satellites each server has, so for coutries with very few satellites, a higher level server is advisable for faster location.

You are mistaken buddy! The above are only NTP servers, and not GPS servers. NTP servers are used to synchronize time, nothing else.

Using correct NTP servers helps the device to have the same time as on the GPS satellites which in turn helps for a faster fix.

The 0, 1 and 2.pool.ntp.org etc names point to a random set of servers that will change every hour.

Use your country's server and it would do.

Hey,

My experience is after changing the server to my specific location, indoor gps accuracy improved... Or maybe I just feel that way.

It does help with better connection with the time servers configuration.
You can try using the pool zone values.

like for Istanbul you can try these values (turkey):
server 2.tr.pool.ntp.org
server 3.asia.pool.ntp.org
server 2.asia.pool.ntp.org

Happy if it helped you
