High ping to

I don't know if this has been around because I have logged on after a long time. I have been constantly getting around 150 more ping on my base ping which is 180. So my current ping to the EU game server is 280-320 in pve areas forget pvp.
My location is India, and I am habituated of playing at 180-220 but this sudden change has rendered the game unplayable for me. Moreover, when I logged in to NA server, I was getting around 290 which was expected considering India is more close to EU.

Here is a trace report :

Tracing route to over a maximum of 30 hops

6 243 ms 243 ms 246 ms []

7 247 ms 248 ms 247 ms
8 246 ms 247 ms 248 ms

As you can see that I am getting 243 ping to an IP address which is located in Switzerland. Can someone please look into this.

    Everyone caring about international latency should also read

    If it happens that give and take in a peering relation is out of balance it might happen that one or two partners quit partnership or limit bandwith for incoming or outgoing taffic. It is basically useless to ask a company to optimize their international latency.

    The big steps are -> which is Mumbai -> Risod (India) and -> which are both in Switzerland. From the 2nd hub in Switzerland its only a few ms to Germany.

    This may change anytime when they change peering on national or international levels.

    Since Telia is on the other end of the line you best chance is to ask Advantus ( in India and Bharti Airtel Limited ( in India why there is a latency of 120ms.
