There are reports that players in Australia are now getting between 50-125ms and connecting to a server in Sydney, can anyone confirm?

I can. Logged in quickly on my Barbarian. Ping started up around 200ms then gradually levelled out at ~40ms. Not sure where the server is (I'm in Sydney) but it was solid on 43ms after going through a waypoint.

Very interesting.

Ahhhh..this explains, a lot. It also explains why it suddenly became laggy when US players joined in, and why I have trouble finding games sometimes...segregation is automatic, but it's there.
