Routing to Tokyo/Singapore instead of Australia

Been using free version of cloudflare which was good but added huge latency to my requests

When I dug into it a bit more (through the trace method) it became clear that the traffic was going via Singapore or Japan (I am in Adelaide, Australia)

I found a post that suggested only paid customers got access or priority to more expensive datacenters like what we have in Australia

So in good faith I upgraded to the pro plan however am still seeing requests routed anywhere except Australia.

You probably best contact support about that.
