Thought some would be interested to know that Twitch.tv will be peering with us and other ISPs in Sydney in the coming days.

Unsure at this point if all their live streams will be served via Sydney or a regional selection, if the former, there should be no reason a user can't stream Twitch in source 99% of the time once the peering is established.

I still don't get why the live streams are so bad yet a VOD is flawless playback on source say 10min later

Live Twitch video and VODs use different CDNs. All live video is delivered from Twitch itself. VODs use Akamai.

Didn't realise this was Wikipedia and I am expected to post a source. Source: myself, telco operator.

I'll post a trace route once we are live.

I wasn't trying to attack your creditability, i can see how it came off that way though.


it was more out of surprise as Twitch themselves have not made a big song and dance about it..

I cant compare buffering till network load on my connection cools off though.. The jitter makes for an unfair statement about if twitch is Actually buffering or not.


Atleast personally, on Vodafones network since the changes they made twitch has been running Perfectly from US, it moving to AUS is exciting.

If anything it seems worse than when it was coming from the US for me. Previously a 3500kbps stream would be ok for 10-20 seconds and then buffer. Now it's every 5-10 seconds.

I hope it's just a teething thing.

Looks like it's switched, on Spark here. 
Streams are coming from 103.53.48.0/24 which are pointing to Sydney. 
Haven't skipped a beat today (but I normally don't anyway)
