Almost makes sense, I've heard something similar except traffic to Japan seems to take the direct route because they return ping of around 160..

Heard of new plans to improve trans-tasman networking by end of 2014 but it's not like that's any helpful at all..

So you wish us to stop asking for an Australian server because we're geographically isolated?

Let me rephrase that. You wish as to stop asking for a server that would bypass our geographical isolation?

Our local network is fine (this is a little iffy, I say it because we have a national fiber network being rolled out over the next few years).

Further more, should we start having servers and larger infrastructure revolving around the internet this may lead to further lines into and out of Australia being installed.

TL;DR: your argument sums up to "Your net is ****, stop trying to improve it or work around its flaws"

Hey OP whenever I see you in a game now I am going to instalock a champion that requires really good ping to play with e.g. Ali, Oriana, Twisted fate. Straya mate, get some yank.

Remember to laugh like "m8m8m8m8m8m8m8m8m8m8m8" when he rages.

I'm still trying to figure out why the state of our intercontinental telecommunications came up in a discussion about a local server farm...

Wait, not having many lines to the USA is a reason NOT to have a server in Australia?

yes, thankyou for pointing out we are isolated from everyone else and as such, require the local server more than other countries
