Brazil br.torguardvpnaccess.com unlikely low latency -> VPN server not really in Brazil?

Recommended Posts

Trunet

Hello,

 

Yesterday, I complained to support about br.torguardvpnaccess.com being down. After a couple of hours, it was restored, however with an unlikely low latency. From where I'm in Europe to anywhere in Brazil, latency is on the range of ~280ms. How is it possible having a ~110ms latency to there?

 

WHOIS says that the IP I got resolving is from Rio de Janeiro (45.133.180.X).

 

My guess is that this VPN server is hosted in the US somewhere in Florida or Mexico. Unless torguard discovered a faster than fiber optic path to Brazil.

 

Some traces (first two from the Netherlands Hurricane Electric and NTT route, last from Canadá Telia):
