Trace complete.

 

while a friend who lives next to me with telstra gets about 190ms, I'm with NBN and I use to get 190ms latency too.

 

 

In this case, Optus is doing the route operations on their end. I try contacting them but they didn't even give me much info.

Re: Optus Routing operations please fix.

This hop to 80.81.69.153 looks like the one between Optus and "Reliance Globalcom Services" so Aus to USA.

And after that its out of Optus's hands as it then goes via flagtel and thats where the latency jumps as it goes Los Angeles -> New York -> London -> Netherlands then back to USA...

So its outside of the Optus network.

 

I tried my parents Telstra dsl and got some odd results - could only get as far as 109.200.218.192 with 100% loss.
