Connecting via Rochdale rather than Manchester


[link to this post]
 
After a recent disconnection I am now connected via Manchester rather than Rochdale, adding a good 10ms onto pings, is there anything I can do to get back on Rochdale?

Try a router reboot.

Virgin (ADSL) => Namesco => Newnet => O2 => Plusnet => Zen => Newnet => Zen => Freeola => Vivaciti (using O2 Wholesale DSL) => Xilo (C&W Wholesale) => Xilo (O2 Wholesale) => Xilo (TT Wholesale due to O2 Wholesale closure)
Router: Billion 7800N

Its probably only a cosmetic issue rather than an actual problem.

Your connection was likely going via Manchester anyway to get to the rest of the Internet. You can see a map of Zen's network here: http://www.zen.co.uk/about-us/our-network (Click the core network button)

From that diagram you can see that all of Zen's external connectivity (Peering and Transit points) are in London or Manchester.

What really matters is end-to-end latency. I doubt that has actually changed significantly.

Yes it has, by 10-15ms.

Had already tried a few times no avail. When I'm bored I'll try some more smile
