The sea-me-we-3 break has been fixed for some time now and running a ping test (from Perth where i'm located) for various Singaporean IPs gives me a latency of 102-110ms rather than the expected ~60ms.
Here is a tracert showing the routing it is taking to singapore

Is there an ETA on when this will be fixed or why it hasn't yet?

Its pretty normal for online IP geolocators to be completely incorrect. IP's were probably purchased via Telstra Gobal's Hong Kong office
pthp-core02 is Perth (on pier street off the top of my head) and pthw is wellington street. (Can even see this via https://www.telstraglobal.com/network-infrastructure-map/#/map and turning on points of presence)
Can you traceroute 18.104.22.168 now and ping -n 50 and post the results
I'm getting the expected latency time from Queensland using an almost identical outbound route using a slightly different path as it bounces around in Perth (roughly 126 ping from Townsville)
