Re: Telus Peering.
said by jtl999:40-70 ping is fine and your friend's speedtest had 29ms to Seattle. Your friend being in the lower mainland very likely will have different routing than a Telus user elsewhere. Speedtest servers are more likely to be on a far faster connection, and can handle more traffic faster, than your average game server. Most people who know what peering is (and I suspect you do since you mentioned PEER1) knows that there is nothing that an end user can do to get *ANY* ISP to peer with specific companies or networks. If you are concerned with the ping to a single city or a single server, go with whatever provider meets your needs best.
I am thinking about getting TELUS internet.
I have one concern about the ping however. I did a traceroute (Don't have them saved) to some servers to Seattle and ping was around 40-75.
I am a bit concerned about this. When will TELUS peer with big providers such as PEER1 to fix this?
Here is a speedtest result from a friend of mine who has Optik 15
