Perth routing to singapore

Recently the sea-me-we 3 international cable connecting Perth to Singapore was fixed after several months downtime. Now that it is fixed, Telstra doesn't seem to be using the same correct routing as before. I get 135 ping going from Perth to Singapore now, running a tracert it shows that it goes Perth -> Hong Kong -> Singapore. Before the cable break I would get 56 ping, as it would go straight to singapore. My friend on a different ISP reports he is getting 60 ping, showing the capability is there it's just the routing hasn't been changed yet. Hoping someone is able to get the routing change soon Smiley Happy 

Here is my traceroute

Yep it's all good. As per whirlpool, down to 12 hops from 19 and ping halved.

Re: Perth routing to singapore

What is your ping may I ask? Because a good ping to singapore from perth is about 60ms, which I used to get earlier this year. I am currently still getting 138ms

 

Edit: Actually, when pinging "92.223.16.66" the singapore world of tanks server I get 58ms which is fantastic. But pinging what I want to use sgp.valve.net [103.28.54.2] I still get 138 ms. What could be the reason for this?

Re: Perth routing to singapore

Just as an update, my ping to other singapore servers (world of tanks server, other singapore IP addresses) is as it should be at 55-60ms. However, my ping to sgp.valve.net, valves singapore servers is still at 135-140ms. I have two friends in Perth on two different ISPs who are both getting 55-60 ping to sgp.valve.net, so the traffic is routing directly from perth to singapore for them.

Re: Perth routing to singapore

I'm another Perth resident in the same situation with the same problem.

 

Before the cable issues I got the same ping to sgp-1.valve.net and sgp-2.valve.net as I did to syd.valve.net.

 

After the cable repair my ping to the Singapore Valve servers is noticeably higher.

 

Is it possible for this to be remedied, please?
