Hi All,
Does anyone know why telstraclear  (was stopped peering at WIX???
It seemed a lot faster then than now, what i dont understand is why push national traffic overseas only to come back here. national traffic should stay local.
How hard would it be to re-instate the peering, this will give everybody on telstraclear a faster surfing experiance.

also Paradise were a lot better before the changes - like mirroring files and having internet radio.

This better not affect gaming servers in NZ. I've just switched to TC in hope of better performance.

Pretty much does this mean that national traffic is being sent out of the country and back in? That would completely ruin ping times.

No, this is only the case if the gaming server you are using is  hosted with a provider who lacks a peering arrangement with Telstra Clear or does not have a domestic transit agreement with another provider which in turn provides local connectivity to Telstra Clear.

Basically what happened is that TCL and TCNZ decided they were tier 1 providers in NZ and to peer with them you would have to pay for the privilage if you were not a tier 1 provider. The outcome being that your ISP typically purchases domestic tranist services from TCL, TCNZ or Kordia and then international transit from one of the previous providers or another third party such as Reach, AT&T, Pacnet(Asianetcom) etc.

Local traffic is still usually kept local.
