Best Node for Australian Members

Postby mico_pixelado » Wed Oct 17, 2018 4:32 am

Hi everyone,

I'm connecting from Australia via the balancer and find my connection speeds vary wildly, anywhere from 7Mbps to 100Kbps depending on the node I end up connecting to.

Is there a "best" node for members in Australia to connect to to ensure reliable/consistent connection speeds?

@OP

Going by this map, I'd say US West coast, based on the links. Failing that, I would suggest the most eastern part of Europe (Poland, Romania); bear in mind that overland links are not shown.

Check this link for a list of the node locations.

UPDATE
I've just realised that we now have a Hong Kong node. Try that first, see how you go. :)

The LA Node gave the best performance out of the ones you listed, so I’ll stick with that. Thanks!
