Looking at a single hop in a traceroute is generally not very
indicative of the performance of a path. There are many common reasons
that an intermediate router might not be sending ICMP messages back to
you that often - ie. there's an administrative filter in place so that
traceroute style messages do not impact router performance, etc.
Generally end to end performance is the metric you should be looking
at first, as that's what counts.
Then if end to end is poor, consider traceroute as one of several
tools to figure out where problems are.
So, you probably want to give more info than poor performance on a
single hop :-)
Incidentally, and perhaps more useful to you, I see poor
performance on Asia Netcom from several places I have gear stashed,
who Orcon use for at least some of their international transit.
