Just noticed that my ping increased by about 30ms after reconnecting from outage, did my dlm prfile just changed somehow due to outage?

snap are probably rerouting traffic via a different city.  chch is about 15 msec ping from auckland, so if it goes auckland -> christchurch -> auckland then you'll get a ping increase of about 30 msec.

that's assuming you're in auckland or thereabouts.  if you are significantly closer christchurch, i'd suggest a dlm change maybe from restarting router?

I assume that's a temporary fix to the outage problem? Yes, i'm in Auckland, i also noticed ping to Christchurch is actually lower than to Auckland, so probably its as you said.

yes, it will come right once snap fix their gear in auckland.

assuming you are using a fritz, you should be able to see that your latency on your DSL line hasnt increased.

give it a few days, sounds like a sizeable fault snap are dealing with.
