    Default Amazon Aws ec2

    Hello everybody I'm from Portugal excuse my English there.

    I wonder if anyone knows if this moment with these changes betfair is even possible to have that magnificent ping a 3/4/5 milliseconds. I saw here on the forum who was having personal magnificent pings 3/4/5 pings through the Amazon service aws ec2, I wonder if anyone is using this service and if it is even possible to get those pings at this time as this new API -ng?

    Yes, I confirm the ping is quite low. But there is a but...

    Unless you are running a self operating / auto trading bot on EC2 you have to add the ping time between your machine AND the EC2 cloud server.

    In my case, i've a ping of ~45 ms from my home to the EC2 server farm plus 1-2 ms from the EC2 server to Betfair server.

    So, If i'm behind a VPN and trading manually from my computer I could expect a total ping round time of circa 50 ms that is still quite good.

    Betfair support has answered that they have not moved their servers anywhere in past few months. But they refuse to call their provider's name.

    I'm having a 23-30 ms ping from an EC2 instance in ireland and almost the same results (~20 ms) from a pair of other VPS providers in the UK.
    Same for you, I guess?

    Have they moved the server? Any other explaination?
