COX Throttling to Game Servers Continued Thread (last one was locked)
Another post was locked showing a tracert to Chicago with a very high ping jump. That thread was locked, I am a different user and wanted to continue that thread discussion because I am having problems as well. I am in Orange County and have used both Spectrum and Cox to the same game server in Chicago. I get around 30ms ping to the server with Spectrum, but 75 ms ping with cox. The relevant tracert route is below:
3 9 ms 10 ms 9 ms ip68-4-14-76.oc.oc.cox.net [22.214.171.124]
4 12 ms 9 ms 9 ms 100.120.104.8
5 55 ms 58 ms 57 ms chgobprj01-ae0.0.rd.ch.cox.net [126.96.36.199]
6 65 ms 65 ms 67 ms ip70-167-150-114.at.at.cox.net [188.8.131.52]
7 66 ms 70 ms 66 ms 184.108.40.206
8 67 ms 68 ms 68 ms 220.127.116.11
As mentioned in the previous thread, the route to Chicago is definitely taking awhile and someone in that thread commented that it is normal. However, Spectrum takes the same route distance but does it a lot faster indicating that the Cox infrastructure is the culprit or maybe there is some throttling.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
