Poor gaming performance and ping

Hi guys,

 

Have a bit of a novel issue with my Plusnet Broadband. I get the full 10Mb down/1Mb up speeds that it says I should during speedtests, but my ping performance is atrocious in games. Funnily enough, my ping is always fine for the FIRST game I join. It's when it reloads the map and reconnects that pings begin to balloon to that 150+ unplayable range. Is this some sort of traffic shaping? Is the game connection being relegated beneath something else, throttled somehow? This is extremely frustrating.

Feel your pain, I've giving up playing, spoilt a whole season, will maybe get 10 minutes then goes up to 150 - 3000 ping, waste of time.
