For the past few days, I’ve been getting higher ping, specifically to Chinese servers when gaming.
Average game ping is ~160ms, now its ~330ms.
Internet speeds are all fine and fast. Ping to google and Australian servers all seem normal. I’ve rebooted the router (HG659), checked all devices (mainly iOS mobile devices) and all still having the same issue. Router ping test to Chinese sites are ~300ms+.
This is a recurring issue. Last time I contacted TPG was probably middle last year, not sure. And before that, the issue occurred because an Australia-Asia subsea cable was cut because of a typhoon. Did something similar happen again, or can this be something else?

Thank you @Sil3ent.
I've checked the account and reviewed the previous issue that you've raised with us.
There were no issues within the routing or damaged cable before. Since you are connecting to an international server, which is why you are getting a high ping times.
Are you able to shoot me a private message with the result of your ping and tracert test? We'd like to analyze this further.
I don’t think I reported to TPG when the typhoon hit Macau in 2017 because the broken subsea cable was out of the scope of TPG anyway. It was only a matter of time before that was fixed.
Yes, higher ping is standard, around 160ms is the normal. But this time it is unusually high, around 300+.
Sending ping and traceret shortly via pm. Thanks.
I'm having problem analyzing the ping and tracert result that you've sent me via PM.
Are you able to provide a screenshot instead? We need the whole info for us to understand this further.
