    Did they deadpool with their Hetzner location some time ago?

  2. Are those test IPs switched? I did some traceroutes from all three of Hurricane Electric’s Asian looking glass routers, and in each the IP that is not marked as Asia optimized gave fewer hops than the one that is. Latency was essentially the same, within a rounding error.

      Router hops are a meaningless metric.

      Furthermore, any optimizations they may have done will relate to the largest problematic Asian ISPs, not to a global transit like HE.

      The whois says it’s correct, someone from QuadraNet mentioned the difference only shows when there is a problem with one of the Asian ISPs, the optimized ones have faster or more reactive routing adjustments or something

    This ‘Asian optimized IP’ is overexpensed bullshit.

  4. Thanks for the listing Maarten!

    @Tom
    We moved out of Hetzner when they were planning to charge for additional IP addresses regardless of whether you paid a one time fee for them or not. We moved to our own servers, which are co-located with IP-Projects, and changed from Xen to KVM in the process.

    As for Asian optimized, I have not done testing myself, however, they are there if they happen to make a difference for you.

    Also, since IPv6 works in all locations, here are the other two IPv6:

    Atlanta (IPv6): 2607:f7a0:6:7::4c5a:f12
    Los Angeles (LA1 – IPv6): 2607:f7a0:3:6::4046:bfa0

    ‘If they happen to make a difference’ cannot cost twice more than VDS itself.
