Re: Routing Problems

said by frivolous:

* Norman - your ping would be alot better to that ip if you were not routed through Kansas either.

If I were routed through Kansas my "ping" would be closer to 60 ms. By examination, my 1st through 6th hops are in the south S. F. Bay Area (San Jose/Palo Alto). The latency on the 7th through 12th hops is about right for a direct run to the Los Angeles region. If I had Fastpath DSL, my latency would be about 15 ms lower throughout the trace.

That is a Sonic.net customer facing XO Communications IP address. XO Communications may be in Kansas, but Sonic.net, LLC is a relatively small (about 50,000 subs) Internet and telephone (POTS) provider serving California customers in the AT&T service areas of California within the state. It is a CLEC.

That IP address would be assigned to XO hardware in San Jose, California.

Do not trust Internet IP geo-locators. When I was an AT&T customer, such services put me in various locations from across town (the Monterey Highway address was about halfway between my actual residence and Morgan Hill, California) to across the Bay (variously, Pleasanton, San Ramon, and Novato). None were within ten miles of my actual residence, and one was close to 75 miles away!
