Dire Transatlantic performance

Anyone notice that the performance across the pond is absolutely dire this evening?

Not at all unusual on several sites.
Am I alone?

No you're not alone.
I use some software called visual route and quite often it shows that there are very long ping times between London and the states.
The rest of the routing is then ok but the bit across the pond is often very slow.
