Compare HE IPv6 Tunnel Broker with Route48 Wireguard Tunnel

Recently, I tested the HE.net Tunnel Broker and Route48.org. Both of them provide free IPv6 tunnel services.

I focused on the latency of the network.

Background:

I have a 100Mbps/10Mbps Internet cable connection.

First is He.net Tunnel Broker.

The Tunnel server is located in Fremont, CA, US.

Consulation.

Route48.org has more server locations. If you can choose the server close to your location, you will get better performance on latency.
