Mobile Connection to Anycast 2 Outside Australia - Slow

Mobile connection using an iphone (tested on apple profile and nextdns app) seems to connect 90% of the time to Anycast 2: Sao Paolo or Zepto Lax or ams (server in US) which is very Slow.

This is in Optus Mobile here in Melbourne, Australia. This is when Ultra Low Latency is disabled. I need to disable ULL as my mobile connection is blocked after sometime when ULL is on.

Olivier Poitrey last time, you mentioned that you will fix the optus anycast 2 casting connecting outside Australia. Is there any update? Can you please configure Anycast 2 to connect to Perth or Sydney or Adelaide?

because when it connects to Anycast 2, it’s super slow.

10% of the time it connects to Anycast 1 - GSL Melbourne. But 90% of the time, it jumps to AnyCast 2 with 400ms Server outside Australia.

Need help please. My subscription is expiring soon and i want to renew it, but with the connection become super slow when connected to mobile is just frustrating.

  • Any clue why ultralow would block after some time? Optus seems to get worse and worse with no response from them. I don’t know what’s going on down there.

    • Olivier Poitrey ULL seems to be ok now. I don’t get any disconnection. But ping.nextdns.io is not showing me where I am connected. When i do the test.nextdns.io, it says I am Sydney. Is this not yet fixed?

      Also the Anycast 2 is still outside Australia. There is like 10% chance i get connected Outside Australia- Anycast 2. I remember it was previously zetta-perth which is good.

      But now its back to zepto lax or brazil or ams.

      can you please fix this? I just renewed my subscription.
