I was going to let this matter rest however feel that it is necessary to state the obvious... their servers are in the US. The US clients have open access as we do and when the markets have huge open interest then the lines are clogged. It is not only trading hours that are accessed.
It is the capacity of these lines from Oz to US that have to be attended to or a greater bandwidth be made available through other connections or an Oz server. Telstra has a 440 ms feedback just from Sydney to Perth (that excludes Perth to Sydney and does not take into consideration Sydney to LA and then to the their server which is re-routed twice).
