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 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 and see if it picks up a different IP.
