Started the Diablo fight with at around "Server will disconnect in 21 minutes" message.
Thankfully I finished the game with around 10 minutes to go. I would of been PISSED if I got disconnected mid-boss fight.

Video gaming giant Blizzard Entertainment has reportedly labelled Telstra as the biggest roadblock in its way to setting up dedicated Australian servers for its popular World of Warcraft and StarCraft II games.
National broadband player Internode has discussed the need for an Australian World of Warcraft server with iconic game publisher Blizzard “for many years”, the company’s managing director Simon Hackett said in April. However the talks have gotten nowhere.

It's old but it shows that Blizzard has tried. Perhaps if other ISP's came to the table maybe something could be done?
Update: Turns out Brack was referring to Optus as our "number one ISP" which means his comments about San Diego now make sense, but it also means they need to be informed a little more about the actual ISP situation in Australia, because Optus would really only represent a small part of our overall service.
