Increased gaming latency

Hi

 

I've recently been experiencing a higher than normal latency on game servers in North America, most notably over the last week.  It looks like traffic is being sent through asia instead of via the Pacific.  Here's a tracert for my connection to World of Tanks US-Central server.

 

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms 192.168.0.1
2 79 ms 126 ms 23 ms 210-246-63-254.dsl.dyn.ihug.co.nz [210.246.63.254]

13 250 ms 250 ms 250 ms dls-b22-link.telia.net [62.115.118.246]
14 255 ms 254 ms 254 ms kanc-b1-link.telia.net [62.115.125.158]

17 252 ms 249 ms 250 ms 92.223.56.17

 

Previously traffic was routed to NSW, then to the US, giving a final ping to Chicago of around 190-200ms.  Routing through Japan seems to be increasing the latency to a much higher amount, reducing the quality of my broadband product.

 

Any help with this?

 

Thanks

Hey there @bungle954,

Don't know much about routing BUT I did manage to find http://forum.worldoftanks.asia/index.php?/topic/75608-regional-connectivity/ and also http://forum.worldoftanks.asia/index.php?/topic/75786-anyone-else-having-massive-lag-issues-in-new-z... stating known issues due to cable problems. That should giveyou all the info you require Smiley Happy 

Best of luck!

Regards,
