Battlefield 1 servers in Hong Kong have extraordinarily high ping times to NZ via Vodafone network.

Account: Unlimited UltraFast HFC Max in Chrsitchurch.

 

Populated Battlefield 4,  Battlefield 1, and Battlefield V servers in the Oceania region are very few if any in the morning and early afternoon, so it is good to NOT to be limited to Austrailian servers which have less than <160ms ping.  My friend has an account with MyRepublicin Christchurch. 

 

His ping rates using MyRepublic:

Oceania 38ms

Hong Kong 151ms

U.S. 203ms.

 

My ping rates using Vodafone

Oceania 49ms

U.S. 205ms

Hong Kong 301ms

 

Ping times are ultra important when playing multiplayer first person shooters, and the more playable servers there are, the better.   Why the huge desparity?  I thought data was going through the same pipe from NZ to other countries.  Can this be rectified?  I sure wouldn't mind joining Hong Kong Battlfield servers in times when there's none active in Oceania.

Do you have a ip address or even better a traceroute to these servers in HK

Hi

 

Will see if there can be any changes made to this route. Interesting that the MyRepublic test is 151 ms to Auckland, and remain 151ms to HK. Very longtime to AK, and then from AK to HK is 0ms............

4 151 ms 151 ms 151 ms te0-7-0-5.cor01.akl05.akl.nz.vocus.network [114.31.202.40]
5 151 ms 151 ms 151 ms be202.cor01.syd11.nsw.vocus.network [114.31.202.55]
6 151 ms 151 ms 151 ms be102.bdr02.hkg01.hkg.vocus.network [119.161.84.35]
7 151 ms 151 ms 151 ms 49544.hkg.equinix.com [36.255.56.159]
8 151 ms 151 ms 151 ms hosted-by.i3d.net [43.239.136.240]

 

As below just tested and can see 279ms from VF

Five days have elapsed so would I be correct in thinking that no changes to the routing can or will be made?

The routing problem is solved.    After 18 years with Vodafone I went to another ISP.
