    In Australia here and hitting the "North Central US" data center. Hope that's because I'm up earlier than the other sleepy heads and getting all the bandwidth...

    @N2Cheval: it depends... your connection to the US could be faster than your connection to our data center in Asia ... or your ISP could be doing routing such that it seems like your connection is faster to the US... or your DNS provider could be telling us that they are in the US... or...

    Interesting, I'm in the south of France and I'm hitting your "Noth Central US" server.

    While it's possible, I find it hard to believe that my connection is faster, the latency between Europe in general and US is on the order of ~150ms while reaching sites in Europe usually takes on the order of ~40ms.

    Just letting you know that you might want to revise your algorithm Smiley

    Sitting behind my desk here in the Netherlands ... connected to Nothern Europe as should be.

    ping channel9.msdn.com

    Pinging ch9northerneurope.cloudapp.net [94.245.105.46] with 32 bytes of data:

    Request timed out.

    It says I'm using the physically nearest center however the site still takes its time to load. I suspect it has to do with me using Live to authenticate here.

    @draza: Can you tell me the DNS server(s) you are using?

    @Duncanma

    From computer1, I've used a national ISP's DNS (ISP is called Free).

    I'm on a computer2 now using a different (unknown) provider (still in France) and now I'm hitting the Nothern Europe server.

    So it might well be the DNS.

    North US here too (i'm in UK)

    Google DNS servers?

    if you jump to a command line and do nslookup it will show you the IP address of the DNS server you are hitting, and if you then type channel9.msdn.com it should show what it is resolving to... the IP address of the DNS server might help us figure out why you are getting that specific result

    I'm in New Zealand and also hitting "North Central US" - my ISP is also our major telecom provider so they shouldn't be doing anything stupid...on the other hand, they probably are.

    @Kevin Daly: Hey Kevin, the IP address/name of your DNS server would be handy in trying to figure this out... thanks

    If you'd like a quick way to get this, going to a command line and typing nslookup should spit out the name and IP address of your DNS server

    I am located in South Africa, and would like to know if the download speeds will also increase ? The site still shows that I am located in the US ;(

    @MorneWolfaardt: I'm not sure which node you *should* be reaching from South Africa, but if you could provide the IP address/name of your DNS server that would help us in determining why you are being routed the way you are. Also a traceroute to video.ch9.ms and media.ch9.ms would be useful. If possible trying out a very recent video and seeing what type of download speed you get would also help.
