Understanding Networks / Traceroute Assignment

For my traceroute assignment I decided to traceroute three sites I frequently visit: YouTube (www.youtube.com), BBC News (news.bbc.co.uk) and my website (jasonyung.ca).

Summary of Analysis:

-for the first 8 routes (defining a route as 1,2,3 etc which appeared in Terminal sequentially) the routes were the name: “AS12 New York University”

-BBC veers off to England soon after, the other two stay in America. To my surprise my website never goes to Canada. They both go to middle America, mostly through Google servers.


-the ending location for facebook seems to be geolocated at the bottom of a lake?

“AS15169 Google LLC”
Geo-Location seems to be in the middle of the Cheney reservoir
