Finally our fault is resolved - turned out to be some ‘well dodgy’ backwiring a previous engineer had done  :o

Anyway, just reading about switching back to IDNET and it mentions if switching like for like (which we are) that I need to get a migration order??? Is this something that happens automatically on ordering?

Also, we already own the exact same billion router which is one of the options, presumably getting the settings for that would be easy enough?

I use a XR500 Netgear router running DumaOS (I beta tested it so I get to keep it)  I can use a Geo Filter to set how far a radius I want to connect to other of gamers for better FPS games. Anyone out of that Geo Filter cannot enter the game, unless I allow them (Say a friend from far away who may lag like hell) My Geo Filter is set to Europe at a maximum distance of 1950 miles only in Destiny 2, with other players I get about 32ms in Germany, I can also ban servers that are slow, but then it can take longer to get into a lobby. I also have QoS on which has hardware acceleration so no slow downs and a thing called Antibufferbloat.

You can set the up and download percentage for your line say 70%, and with each devices in QoS you can also adjust the download and upload percentage you want. The Antibufferbloat setting when on slows your throughput by the % you set in the Antibufferbloat setting but this helps eliminate lag and low pings with all the settings I was talking about (and there are more too but far to many to talk about here) when gaming and prioritises PC games or console game traffic. I have mine set to 'When high priority traffic is selected' so I don't need it all the time because my line is pretty good, so it kicks in when I game and gives my line full speed to watch 4K Netflix or download OS updates or game patches etc when I'm not.

 Even will all that set up I would say 39ms to is fine that is not bad at all!

Here is a video from about the router at release, the blokes voice I find annoying but its worth watching if you are interested as a gamer, or want a very granular QoS. More features have been added since and bugs squashed, with the enevitable new ones popping up, but Netduma who make DumaOS are quick to squash the bugs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQiwtXoNqsA

I get 32ms (Not on IDNet any more though). So seems about average. I get average 24ms in (other) games. Might be around 32ms in EU servers, but not checked locations. I get 8ms when hosted in Peterborough  ;D

You've got a longer/slower hop into IDNet than I have into my provider, but your hop into Hetzer is sooner and quicker than mine (adds 19ms+ for me just to leave my ISP and get on their, I assume, ring/routing then onto hetzner). So you lose 10ms getting to idnet, but go a LOT quicker to hetzner.

Without seeing your old tracerroute I'd have no idea what changed though.

Every 186 miles is another millisecond. That's the speed limit.

I experienced the same, traffic to my server at Hetzner was going via Netnod in Stockholm. I contacted both Hetzner and IDNet about it last week, and this morning was informed by IDNet that they are now peering with Hetzner at AMS-IX (Amsterdam).

My new route is below, I expect you'll see similar improvement. For me, this means 49ms instead of 100ms :)

Openreach is a part of BT Group, but they're very much supposed to be an arm's length relationship with Wholesale nowadays. (Supposed to be.)
The 'supposed' to be seperated is just another lie from the BT group. My Openreach engineer friend was saying they still carry homehubs, now that's not exactly being free from BT is it. Interesting to see what happens to BT after all the mistakes and legal wrangles, like over spending on the champions league, buying EE and finally the pension plan <ahem> borrowing they did to patch the holes from the legal wrangles in Italy and all the cock ups by Gavin Patterson...  :slap:

Yet oddly no they have separate numbers...

BT Wholesale is Openreach. One hopes that they've got it on their list for backhaul upgrades.
Yet oddly no they have separate numbers... and websites  ::) https://www.btwholesale.com/pages/static/home.htm
