Hi @2degreescare @morganbrowne @pwner,


I'm seeing increased latency to the US, is there un/planned work being done on one of the direct paths on Southern Cross cable or is there a capacity issue forcing traffic to route via Australia?

Looks like planned work on southern cross, traffic restored to the short path at 1am.

Any posts are personal comments and not that of my employer

I reached out to NZNOG, and no-one else was aware or experiencing the same behaviour, seems like an odd maintenance window.
