How about google? I've been getting high pings to 8.8.8.8 for a few days. Usually it's 8ms. Now all the way to ~250. ACT routing is always wonky.

Only different I see is the 5th IP... it is going through 14.141.145.89 for me and
14.141.145.197 for you

Pings to 8.8.8.8 are high for me too. It is on an average 255ms

TraceRoute to fast.com is just to the website, not the actual servers where the speeds are checked...

Try this:

Run a speed check on fast.com and while it is running, in command prompt do a "netstat -a" command to locate any "netflix.net" kind of addresses. Then do a traceroute to one of those hosts...?

For example, I just tried traceroute to: ipv4_1.mce0.c056.fra001.ix.nflxvideo.net

I'm getting ipv4_1.lagg0.c090.sea001.ix.nflxvideo.net

I'm getting full speeds to Seattle? How's that possible?

What's your traceroute to this netflix address? Mine seems to go via an IP named "DC-E-IX" so maybe it's in france and related to that european peering thing that mumbai convergence hub just announced partnership with - maybe something is going on "back stage" and netflix will become fast in India in general soon enough?

It's now atria.isp.nflxvideo.net with blr001, hyd001 etc etc. Good move.
