Awful performance, for a while now

I've been getting dire performance from my adsl recently, I regularly have 2second lag on IRC, high unplayable pings in Counter-Strike, and high latency in World of Warcraft.

A few tracerts:

Now this is just a quick post of whats happening tonight, currently I have Firefox, IRC, Steam and Notepad running, and nothing else. Spyware sweeps have come clean, as have virus checks.

It's been happening for ages now, and I'm wondering why.

See the other posts on high latencies, slow pings etc in the community support forums. You are not alone.

I know full well that I'm not alone sadly, but I'm just wondering if there's an explanation as to why, and if we're ever going to see an improvement :/

no explanation as of yet , but yes there will be an improvement as soon as networks figure out how to fix it
