Poor routes to Dallas
« on: December 19, 2008, 04:27:40 PM »

Hi,

Thanks for this great service.  Once I saw you had a presence in Dallas, I figured it would be worthwhile to take the IPv6 plunge.

However, the route to your server there is pretty convoluted.  I'm in Austin, on RoadRunner.  I have a couple of servers in Dallas (at the Infomart) and I get <20ms pings to them.  But the latency to the HE Dallas node is 60-70ms.

Code: [Select]
traceroute to 216.218.224.42 (216.218.224.42), 30 hops max, 40 byte packets

Contact RR and ask them to peer with us :) Or if you have a decent contact, we'll email them, in addition to the emails we send out already.
Our peering information is public: http://he.net/adm/peering.html

Okay, will do.  I don't have a contact for you, but if I end up reaching somebody worthwhile, I'll pass it along.  Thanks for the speedy response and for the great tunnel!
