Hi there

Playing World of Tanks and getting horrible ping. Started a couple of days ago. Was 140-170ms now often up to 600ms

Something change. I know it's outside your network, but figured I'd ask if there is anything that can be done anyway? Seen a couple of other similar posts where ISPs have tweaked things and got improvements.

Tracing route to worldoftanks.sg [92.223.16.54]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

Hi,

Any update?

 

Ping has improved but still nowhere near the 120ms that it was originally. Now sitting at 280-300ms.
I have also noted that Telstra are routing us to Singapore via Hong Kong and not via Perth as it always has been.

I remember reading recently that more bandwidth has been opened up on the AJC cable and thus it may be more economic for TelstraGlobal to route you via that path.  Note, 'economic' does not mean faster or lower latency, it means its an under utilized link that they can use more effectively.

I raised this with both Snap and Wargaming. Something happened at just before 8:30am today that seems to have fixed it. Pings are a bit higher than the previous 140ms, but they're still under 200ms.

I have noticed this too, however the routing is still going through Hong Kong with Telstra, which is not the optimum route. As far as effiencency goes that is a fail.

It's not the first time nor will it be the last time gamers have seen weird routing™ on Telstra/Reach upstream transit.

Snap's use of them as an upstream provider is the #1 reason I decided not to switch to them.

Usually it takes months to resolve.

The return path may be going via HKG, but the path from Snap to Wot is still via Perth.

They're not using Telstra/Reach as an upstream provider. Vocus are.

Same ping time, but Telecom instead of Telstra.
