Static IP - Everything routed via London


[link to this post]
 
I recently got Hyperoptic installed, I live in Manchester. Yet it seems everything is routed by London.

When I was on a CNat it seemed things were breaking out from Manchester.

Is there any reason for this, and can it change? Seems crazy to route all down to London for it to have to come back up for local connections.

I'm in Manchester too (hello!) and also have a static IP.

Looks to be Manchester all the way for that; prior to CGNat the pings were a lot lower - where now the ping for the final hop is 7.8msec, it used to be perhaps 1.5-2msec instead.

There's a fair bit which should still use IX Manchester - there are quite a few big companies peering there (BBC, Apple).
