[added bcc to ops at arin.net so that they can have a look at it too from
their end etc etc]

Welcome to the wonderful world of "MTU issues" ;)

Something is nicely filtering out ICMP there and clearly some hop is not
1480 ;) The fun really starts when you have a 1280 pMTU though.

Unfortunately ARIN doesn't have any traceroute6/tracepath6 tool
available online so that one can check the path back, which could show
where it goes wrong, as asymetric routes tend to be a big issue also ;)

I won't even show the other traceroute which has a 400ms+ path and
bounces from between nl -> uk -> us -> jp -> kr -> us -> arin and then
goes dead. IMHO ARIN should also definitely look at getting a good
transit provider, which would also help quite a bit with these kind of
