Thought I'd make a quick post about this as I have no idea how it has happened but I am super happy about it!
My ping to Google DNS used to be about 22ms.
I then chatted support and they put me onto fast path where it came down to 17-18ms overnight, I was really happy at that point.
This morning the Mrs complained that the internet was "a bit slow", I've checked on it now and my sync and session are still up and haven't dropped but my ping!!!!
How on earth have you made such a dramatic difference when seemingly nothing else has changed? That's got to be some major routing shift surely?
For the pessimists, yes I've also tried other sites such as bbc which is notably better as well as pinging my web host which is notably better.
Thank you PN for the early X-Mas present!
I'm not aware of any changes to the routing, but there can be various other factors involved like the DLM profile.
Either way I'm glad to hear that your latency has improved!
(P.S. I think I picked up and replied to your tweet just now)
