Last night noticed horrendous pings for Aussie, after pinging a few servers it turns out that I have faster connection with LA, New York and London (all around 200 approx) with Sydney showing 330 and 1.5M down, Brisbane at 370ms!

Orcon tech worked a trick or two but couldn't fix it, said he was off to Tier three and I should call back. Suspects traffic routing through US?

Anyone else seeing this?

I have placed a slow ticket with them tonight and I will see if there's any improvements sometime late next week. Good thing for wiring and maintenance insurance haha Smile

19MB down! Wow.... that's pretty outstanding, I get 6MB at best.....ha.

Seems to be back to normal again, also found better pings with the US as well as a decent 45ms to Sydney. Strange all the same I had over 430ms at one point to Aus!
