Toronto Gateway - preliminary testing and feedback

Imagine being from Toronto, and not able to play on Toronto server because console.
I'll see if I can get our provider to do something to improve the routing through Chicago issue.

There's also potentially Montreal as another server location if Toronto doesn't work out.

It'd be interesting to see a WinMTR to speedtest.tor01.softlayer.com to see if that goes through Chicago too.
sweet, hope the stability is good.
It's pretty odd seeing my ping be 20-30ms higher on the Toronto server than it is on the DC server, seeing as I live 30 minutes from Toronto.

You are on prem? I thought this was cloud?
Getting a VERY steady 48 ping from Newfoundland (which normally gets higher ping than anywhere else whether I'm connecting to Toronto, Montreal, etc). Feels SO MUCH better. Was getting around 68 on DC before and it would fluctuate tons.

Foremost, I want to thank you and GGG for making an effort to improve performance for those of us in Eastern Canada. I assume Toronto is being tested first due to player population in Ontario vs Quebec/Maritime provinces, but if the Montreal option is seriously being considered (even just as a secondary test for comparison), that would be welcome news for those of us further east.

Texas 35-45
Washington 40-50
Toronto 35-45

Though the ping is approximately equal, Texas had fewer and less significant spikes than Toronto, and both were more stable than Washington. This is observed from Fredericton, New Brunswick, using Bell-Aliant.

I am from Saint cloud, MN and tried the new Canada gateway and I am getting a better ping and its more stable, please keep this new gateway, its pretty much a game changer for me.
Would love a permanent option in Eastern Canada once the routing issue is worked out. Washington has been spiky for me all league.
