Improving Ping to SEA from Perth

Level 3
Considering using 4G adds a bit to the latency, i'm getting much better pings to Singapore servers over 4G mobile wifi.

Hi @boonhowe,

 

Last month this issue has been escalated to our Engineering Team for further handling. Last 24/Jun/19 one of our Engineers contacted you confirmed that the service is working.

 

If you're still having latency issue with the service. Please post the latest Tracert together ping test for reference and we'll re-escalate this to our Engineering Team for another investigation.

 

Cheers!

Not sure if this Tracert visual mapping tool is accurate, but it looks weird to have the routing all over the place

Hi @boonhowe,

 

Thanks for the additional details. This has been re-escalated to our Engineering Team for another assessment. Expect an update from one of our Engineers within 24-48hrs via SMS or Phone call once it's available.

 

Cheers!
