It does not show Auckland as my "recommended server" to connect to either, it is Christchurch or Wellington. I get a ping of 200 to Wellington and 130 to Christchurch. Yet when I ping Tauranga, I get 50ms.
I pinged Wellington at 30ms when I was with Actrix. Is it possible that they didn't completely switch me over and I'm still going though six servers to get to Auckland instead of just going straight to Telecoms server?
I think this is my high ping issue.
