tserv1.jnb1.he.net - Which does *local* (<50ms) connectivity?

Good day,

So Vumatel is rolling out in my region, and I've been checking this situation with https://atlas.ripe.net/measurements/14787598/#!probes after I've had fall outs with VoX that doesn't want to route locally to tserv1.jnb1.he.net (only via London... it's a management decision... been there for >1month ADSL side)

So it appears that the following FTTH ISPs will be scrapped from my list to cater for my IPv6 connectivity:

* Vox - already confirmed
* Cool Ideas - seems to route locally to he.net, but then the return path is via London?? o_O
* Seacom routed - Any ISP that uses Seaom predominantly (Which I guess includes Macrolan ?? ;( ) as could be seen from the RIPE probes

Any advice (and traceroute "proofs") which Vumatel FTTH ISP does local routing for the IPv6 tunnel endpoint on he.net?

Any advice which Vumatel FTTH does provide a local IPv6 tunnel end point?

Are you going to be on Vumatel trenched or Aerial? Trenched is a L3 network, so no native IPv6 support from them yet. Best bet is to tunnel via HE (Who we peer with, so <3ms to them if you're based in Joburg). If you're on Aerial, we support IPv6 natively via PPPoE.

Well... they trench *and* do aerial in our area, but then I'll be in a complex with trenched connection, so you tell me which I'll get ;)
Im "happy" to do the he.net tunnel, as I currently do it via ADSL, just painfull with Vox that doesn't route locally, so I have multiple ISPs on ADSL for that, and the reason I'm asking, so lets see what Vumatel will deploy for us.

Thanks for the quick reply. Drop our activations team an email (or me a PM) and they'll check for you.

The HE tunnel works well over trenched, here it is running on a Vuma Trenched line in JHB:
