According to Extreme IXP Manager

Fastly is peered with Extreme IX but traceroutes to the IP don't seem to go through it:

Code:

The new ip ranges you are getting don't use extreme ix now for Mumbai based peering points. Instead they hand it over to Tata directly. Same goes for 1.1.1.1 for me (earlier used to be via extreme ix)

Wait Reddit doesn't work for you guys? I can load images and videos decently enough with no VPNs and stuff.

Edit: Test
No VPN / Proxies, Excitel's DNS

Tried Cloudfare's WARP on windows briefly, did not seem to have any major impact. A couple of images loaded fine but was not consistent. Videos had the same shitty performance.

@JB701 Interesting find.
