The fact your trace stops after the Telstra Global network, so it lives on Fastly caching, and it's picking up the most optimal server is off the Telstra network. I for example on AussieBB hit a server directly peered off our Aussie network.


I'm seeing many people in Whirlpool complain about BBC streaming issues across the board, so it makes me think it's more upstream connectivity issues. eg: to reach BBC UK, you have to either go


Perth > Singapore > Dubai > Europe into London

Sydney > LA > NYC > London


Sadly, this isn't something Optus can fix as it's upstream of their providers. The only thing I can suggest, try changing your DNS to or and see if it picks up a different IP.
