When you say fetches data from the ssg do you mean at build time ?

All good! Doesn't that setup still mean depending on fast builds for speedy updates on render?

The json is hosted separately, and is live as soon as it's published. The data is fetched live from the client side on render.

I do have a short cache time on it to speed up refreshes, but still allow for near live data. Or use hard refresh to force it to fully refetch.
