Still poor pings during gaming

I was hoping that todays new pipe would fix the recent "issues" with gaming, this doesn't appear to be the case, having just been playing on Barrysworld 213.221.176.39:27015 with a load of friends (mostly on plusnet) not a single one of us had a ping below 200 and were all suffering from packet loss and lag.

The problem was not with the server as other people on BT ADSL were not affected. Are there any plans to fix this soon? That said the service as a whole has been better today since the new pipe went active, web surfing is back to how it should be.

RE: Still poor pings during gaming

Add me to the list.

160 up, 131 down at ADSLguide.

Pings ranging from 289 to 379ms.

MOHAA unplayable.

Some response from Support would be nice.
Even if they just acknowledge us.

RE: Still poor pings during gaming

My ping to Got Hunted doubled to over 300 last night since the new pipe. And a friend on pipex was getting less than 150 ping.
