Looks like some of their CPT IP blocks still have access to Seacom:

Code:
8.35.59.66 => seacom-cpt1 (8.35.59.0/24)

Trace to IP serving the content (found with IPvFoo chrome plugin)
tracert 41.206.98.14

Tracing route to cache.google.com [41.206.98.14]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

  1    12 ms    12 ms    12 ms  172.16.0.1
  2    14 ms    13 ms    11 ms  172.68.185.1
  3    12 ms    12 ms    13 ms  105.22.64.225
  4    14 ms    13 ms    13 ms  xe-0-0-2-0.dr-01-cpt.za.seacomnet.com [105.16.30.14]
  5    13 ms    11 ms    12 ms  cache.google.com [41.206.98.14]

Trace complete.

I have two warp configs one warp + and then a normal warp i made for a friend (we use it via wireguard)

The one i made for my friend is being pulled from Seacom

My CISP connection when i terminated the VPN is now connecting to Frankfurt

EDIT: after confirming the above i am back to Kenya

So after some more digging I see Cloudflare Warp in JHB mostly give 104.28.229.0/24 for V4 and the Google Cache is actually from AS28907 2a02:2278::/32 Internet Invest Ltd. which is https://mirohost.net in the Ukraine peering at GigaNET IX.

Discussions on the network groups is they are doing random announces and changes. Probably relative to what you are seeing.

Yea i don't mind as long as it works which it is so all good.

I have warp which works well too - they don't peer locally with Google for most of their gaming servers as well so get good latency and no packet loss.

@PBCool internet has been on and off all day, steam and discord constantly kicking me out and browsing is generally slugish.

@PBCool Frogfoot seems to be down in CPT. 3 connections including a FTTB all over Frogfoot. Would you mind checking with Frogfoot NOC?
