global.ds.msft.com.akadns.net


Please lookup

global.ds.msft.com.akadns.net

and see if address returned is:

207.46.51.39

also see if it traceroutes to Asia.

Either akamai is incapable of returning the ip of a US mirror for US users, or they do not want to. Makes for very slow downloads.

The CNAME global.ds.microsoft.com points to the record above.

Thanks for taking the time to do the check and test.

I am looking for as many valid data points as possible to present to MS. Lots of people have complained for a long time of slow downloads for subscription content. Pushing subscribers to the farthest point on the globe would kind of cause that

It seems very strange that Akamai is doing this. At the very least, MS should know about this, whether they approve or not.
