ADELAIDE TO SAN JOSE CONTINUES TO BE A PROBLEM

The connection, from Adelaide, Australia  to San Jose, US, owned by Internode Pty Ltd, continues to have latency issues. While connections from Australia to the States are know to be a little slow, this one seems to be consistently worst than the rest.

STORMS IN THE NORTH EAST US DIDN’T AFFECT INTERNET LATENCY

While the the Northeast US digs out from two feet of snow, the good news is that internet held up well during the storm. There were certainly thousands of home internets connections that went down completely, but commercial backbones remained mostly unaffected with normal latency times.

ACCURACY OF TRACES IMPROVED

We’ve been noticing that sometimes a trace would be drawn from one location to the next but the names of the location didn’t match accurately to where the lines were drawn. Sometimes it was off by only a few miles,  but sometimes worse.

We’ve spent the last week working on the problem, and have vastly improved the accuracy of our geolocation system, the engine that converts an IP address into a named location with latitude and longitude pairs.

While we’re confident in the improvement, it’s impossible for us to be 100% accurate. If you think you see a problem with anything on the map, please contact us at support@internetweathermap.com.
