Well thats what i'm not getting at all!!
it seems like its having trouble even leaving my gateway.
And is it taking the scenic route to bosten? Oh my god yeah!! what kind of route is that?
not the [censored] fast kind thats for sure!!
Is it just my isp provider being stupid or is it a fault on my line do you think?
p.s BL00DY is a swearword?
I'll tell you what i think, The route taken to that server is bad 20 hops, it should resemble something like the one XRaySpeX posted
pings of 90-100ms would be average for fastpath, maybe 110ms if interleaved but in the 300's that is definitely not right and unacceptable really, The problem apart from your connection being routed in a very unusual way to some destinations,
I think it's possibly down to congestion on the ISP's VP virtual path at your exchange,if it isn't then DLM has really messed things up for you , Swapping isp may cure it ,unless you can get some sense out of EE But if they won't help the only thing i can think of is make a formal complaint and take it up with EE's ADR So at least you may be able to leave without paying any remaining months left on the contract period assuming you are still within your min term
