Calling the LSP (losing service provider) is the worse thing to do if they put a order on the connection then the GSP (Gaining service provider) will have issues moving the connection over

The thing to remember about latency is it's always due to change.

 

 

 

You never know when a routing deal will change, a fibre link will get damaged, provider adds alternative paths due to growing demand etc.

 

 

 

The best option is the larger RSP's, Vodafone, Spark, Bigpipe/Skinny by proxy of being under sparks routing, Voyager.

 

2D are an interesting one to go with as they are doing alot of work in their routing.

 

 

 

Overall 2D routing is starting to look quite nice from their own core. but i'd expect it more likely to see changes in their routing compared to say, Spark.

2degrees also have low latency routes to the US which they route over depending on the type of traffic and larger capacity pipes for bulk traffic. I suspect for gaming you'll go over the lower latency routes. This is why a Tracroute isn't actually the best way to determine how a service is going to work with a provider without testing that service.

 

Be interesting to see how it compares regardless.

Yup exactly. there are so many variables to it.

 

 

 

As i said, 2D do alot of interesting things with their routing. which may introduce a bit of variance, but also make them a great option.

To throw my 2c in, it can and does change without notice and it's a totally frustrating.

 

The route from here to the US west coast is unchanged, but reason I cannot fathom I've gone from 170-180ms on Blizzard servers to 220-230ms.

 

It slams into the west coast just peachy until it hits Blizzard and adds 50ms. This did not exist last month and due to the way Blizz run their support services, I don't see any way of them actually acknowledging a fault.

 

So yeah, latency can change and it can be absolutely outside of your and your ISPs control

I found that I can shave off about 20-40ms by using Nord VPN and playing around with different USA servers, usually I try going around the compass relative to the server I'm trying to access. Even using the free version of
Windscribe can help when MR are being terrible.
