    Can anyone explain to me, when running tracert from my school computer to Google, it goes from my machine to Local Authority base, London, back to Local Authority then America? Why London and back?

    Thank you!

    Why not? It uses any route that is free.

    I thought it was a bit coincidental for it to return to my county - I didn't know if it had to travel from LA to ISP to be authenticated then back (for some unknown reason) then to Google.

    For most people it just goes through any available route.
    All teacher connections, including yours SBE are of course routed back through this building*
