Problem with ISP's Internet

I'm from Pakistan and Internet here are expensive comparing to other regions. Recently there was found a fault in submarine cable near Egypt in SeaMeWe-5 cable, Check here. Because of that my ping gone from 150ms to 300ms from Europe and West region but ping from east regions are perfectly fine (except India). ISP posted in news that:

 "The fault has occurred in the cable system coming from France and the TWA executive said ISPs were in the process of shifting the load to other submarine systems coming from Singapore". 

Is this the problem that is causing all this issues or Is this some issue in my home router? The ISP is "Transworld Associates".

What happened to the ISP can indeed cause ping issues.

Is there a way I can reduce that latency in any way? to Europe region.

You can try a VPN .

Not really. Damage in the cable probably means the packets now have to take a longer route to reach Europe, which increases ping times. The only way to reduce them again is to fix the cable.

A VPN or a proxy through Russia may be a temporary fix.

I would assume packages travel the shortest route already. But I suppose it's worth a try forcing them to go another way via a VPN.

got it so which vpn is mostly used in my region because I've never got low latency while using vpn to any place.

Any VPN. I use NordVPN and ExpressVPN, but I doubt you'll see any improvement. The outbound connection to the VPN server still has to be made on the redirected infrastructure.

 

Thankfully, your ISP had a backup. If it didn't, you'd be doing much worse than a 300ms latency!
