HI, thanks for taking the time to read this. I currently have verizon high speed internet, however, it is not from verizon directly. The internet is provided to me by a local ISP who buys bandwith from verizon. I do this because I live in the rurals and the local ISP has an antenna up across the valley to support the residents with internet. Anyways, as of the past 3 weeks, I have had very incosistent internet. It is not my router, and I do not believe it is the ISP. The verizon bandwith IP adress that I am using is 108.47.x.xxx. However, It seems this is a problem coming from a company known as "Telia.net". Running a Tracert in CMD in my computer, i come up with these reults:

As you can see, my ping is all over the place and it seems I have a ton of packet loss at times. It seems that it really starts going wrong in the Telia.net servers, which are located in Sweden. Why this is happening I have no idea. I live in Southern California so why is my internet tracing back to Sweden? This is really frustrating and I don't appreciate paying money for such bad service. Any help would be much welcomed! Thank you VZ community for reading this!
What you're getting your information from, in regards to Sweden is the WHOIS information. TeliaSonera is a Swedish Telecom company. Your data is actually going to Ashburn, Virginia first and then going to Frankfurt, Germany.
You will want to have your ISP speak to Verizon about this issue. What surprises me is it looks like they are using a FiOS connection, rather than a Verizon Business (AlterNet) connection.
