Last month I noticed quite high latency with Cisco’s OpenDNS from my home fibre connection. The provider at home is IAXN (AS134316) which is peering with content folks in Delhi besides transit from Airtel. ping -c 5 126.96.36.199 PING 188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 220.127.116.11: icmp_seq=1 ttl=51 time=103 ms 64 bytes from 18.104.22.168: icmp_seq=2 ttl=51 time=103 ms 64 bytes from 22.214.171.124: icmp_seq=3 ttl=51 time=103 ms 64 bytes from 208.
