Hang on a second now, my ping is super good right now, is Vox using SACS now?

I just started up Apex Legends and it made my default lowest ping server Sao Paulo at 168ms.

Edit:

Code:
Pinging bras.afrihost.com [155.239.255.250] with 32 bytes of data:

How is this possible on DSL, it was 24ms yesterday.

Edit 2:

my third hop the 17th of February:

3 27 ms 27 ms 27 ms 41.193.3.101

my third hop now:

3 9 ms 9 ms 9 ms 41.193.3.101

depth of 1 = fastpath

interleaving is an error correction system for poor signal, your signal must be okay. post line sync stats to confirm
My stats haven't changed since they installed the MSAN x number of years ago:

Line Attenuation(Up/Down): 5.6/17.0 dB
Noise Margin(Up/Down): 12.2/11.0 dB

Weird that you are now on Fastpath with VDSL. Before they forced interleaved for error correction on 20 and 40Mbps VDSL. I'm guessing they are trying out fast path on good VDSL lines now.

Also latency has slightly dropped on Openserve even on fibre. Not exactly sure what has changed on Openserve side but something has.

As for Vox using SACS I will need to do some tests quick but that would be a very interesting development indeed.

this was never the case, had 40Mbit VDSL on fastpath many years ago, a large portion of customers on VDSL wanting higher sync rates (and a push to get them on faster line speeds by Openserve) on sub-optimal lines was the reason, and this applied to ADSL too when ASSIA's system was used
You could have 40/3 on Fastpath and 45/10 on interleaved, I now have best of both.

FastPath accounts for everything else but that's not going to make my ping to AWS Sao Paulo 170ms, unless Apex is lying to me that means SACS is the only answer.

The one Apex Legends server in Sao Paulo but it's not AWS it's Maxihost, if I ping the AWS one the ping is 280ms.

Hmm, wonder if I can have my vdsl line changed to fastpath from interleave? Should that be on both up and down as mine is on up only. Not sure what the stats should be. I am about a block away from the exchange.
Would love to get better latency.

I'm definitely interleaved on both. Ideally I'd love to have Fast Path Download and Interleaved Upload, since I do enjoy the 5120 kpbs Upload I get on my 20Mb VDSL.

I don't want to rub it in but it feels so nice having the faster speeds and FastPath too, I genuinely can feel the difference, that's why I posted originally, I was just minding my own business and I was like why is everything loading so fast. I hopped onto Apex solo the other night and played on the Sao Paulo server at something like 168ms and it felt amazing, this is after playing on Belgium at over 200ms two or so weeks back, London was 220ms.

I don't know how you get that because I tried and I still see pretty high latency.

I still can't get over the horror show that is 230ms in League of Legends EU West.

Vox fatpipe is almost a distant memory for me now even on Openserve fibre it's just not that good.

Unknown ISPs like infogro has better routing and latency than them.

It's just that one server in Sao Paulo that gives me that low ping, I don't know what is up with that.

Ping statistics for 8.8.8.8:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 32ms, Maximum = 35ms, Average = 33ms

Why must you be like this.

Edit: This is better:

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 8ms, Maximum = 9ms, Average = 8ms
