You live in sydney, you have a direct port right through to the server/s, all other players in Australia are having to jump through 1-15 exchanges/towers etc, so nothing to do with "our end" I live in Adelaide, ADSL2, as well as tunnel, best i can get is 250-500, is not just about how good your net is, is all about physical location!
And just accept it people, ive played since vanilla, and in 05/06 there was a mass forum regarding this, bigger than this one, and blizzard did the same then as they do now, ignore it, then just renamed the realms they made, "oceanic" all it did was give the Americans somewhere to come get easy pvp achs, knowing most of us cant compete with the ping we have.
The window for servers is long gone, this whole "oceanic forum" is pretty much useless, never get any blues in here, is like a no go zone, just a MVP when he/she decides to come out of the shadows.
With Robert Kotick at the helm of Activision Blizzard, you can be assured servers will never hit Aussie soil, he is just a money machine, which is a shame really, as this game is slowly dying due to his cut backs etc, nothing lasts forever but it might have if Michael Morhaime, Allen Adham and Frank Pearce didnt sell out.
