said by frivolous:Those are Tiscali-owned IP addresses; but the nationality of the owner does not indicate the actual location of the router. 'xe-3-3-0.lax20.ip4.tinet.net [184.108.40.206]' looks like it is in Los Angeles, California; and, in any case, latency to Europe from the U.S. West Coast would be closer to 200 ms than the 26 ms to 77 ms of your trace.
Considering for the past 8 or so months that i have had service (that worked)- my ping to this server (a game server i run) is usually 15 or so , 55 is really high, - then when you take into consideration i am being routed through GERMANY?!?! at 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 i would say my routing is a problem - thank you for any help!
There is no law requiring that European-owned companies can't run routers in the U.S., or that they must not use RIPE IP addresses on their hardware.
