Was just doing some traceroutes and noticed traffic seems to be going direct to Level 3

Has anyone else noticed this?

Tracing route to []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

Upon further investigation it looks like GGI is still in use, in addition to whatever is happening with Level 3.

Don't know what 2D have been up to but I'm liking it. Trace Routes to servers on have dropped from upwards of 26 hops to 10 (via GTT) with the average ping also dropping by nearly 100ms. Also noting different routes to the US (esp East Coast)

Tracing route to X.X.X [195.154.X.X]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms []
2 3 ms 3 ms 3 ms []
3 * * * Request timed out.
4 144 ms 144 ms 144 ms []
5 144 ms 144 ms 144 ms []
6 301 ms 303 ms 302 ms []
7 303 ms 302 ms 302 ms []
8 302 ms 302 ms 305 ms
9 305 ms 302 ms 302 ms []
10 302 ms 302 ms 302 ms X.X.X.X [195.154.X.X] --> Server

Trace complete.

Excellent, keen to hear how everyones east coast/europe performance goes from here onwards.


Seeing ~300ms to europe. Most routes to asia seem to be going via california however - don't have a reference to what route they took before but iirc most were going via australia.
