Maybe it's just because I'm a huge geek and have automated alerting linked to a huge klaxon and spinning red light when any mild performance issue appears on my Internet connection (no not really, I only have a klaxon), but I've notice that in the last few days my latency to some international sites has risen by ~100ms:

Wait, are you with xnet as well?  If so, why is your route so different to mine?  I'm on the old Fusion plan (with 75gb off peak free).

Because Vocus peer with both iinet and telstra, between those relationships they will balance traffic as they please.

Hmm, this seems to be pretty consistent tho, why would it be different between me and others on xnet at the Aussie end?

Your IP addresses will fall into different supernets. Honestly unless Xnet use certain BGP communities provided by Vocus there is little to nothing which they can do. WWW stands for wild wild west, the internet is a crazy place.

Hmm, my current PPPoA uptime is 27 days, 16:31:57 and the issue has only been happening for a couple of days, so I'm not sure if my IP has anything to do with the issue in this case.

no, i'm with callplus.  I probably should have made it clearer.  It was a route I was posting  so you could compare to another ISP.

Ah, well that clears all that up then :D

So does anyone else with an xnet connection care to test to sony.com as well?
