Excessive Ping

Over the last three days I have seen a massive increase in the Ping /Latency to  the TF2 MvM  (Team fortress Mann v Machines )servers which I have been playing on now for over ten months.
Previously Ping Latency has been pretty good averaging  38, now the servers I usually play on are unplayable at over 300+ pings.
What I'm wondering is why?, is this a Plusnet thing where loads of people have jumped on board over the Christmas advertising campaign or something else.
The servers are Uk based  and up-to three days ago had a very good ping/latency.
And I can't see Team Fortress 2 on the list of Games which Plusnet allow, how exactly do I make sure they are not blocking restricting the Servers.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
ThisLd.com 5.39.37.4:27015 well over 300+ ping  =(
Thanks.
Bit gutted I can't use my Fave servers right now.

Try now?
We've had a network interface issue the past couple of days.  We've just fixed it.

Re: Excessive Ping

traced the IP and 2 issues, a number of PN spikes and also looks like its the transit host in France at fault as well.  Checked a few other servers I use and no issues repeated just with that host in france

Re: Excessive Ping

Thanks Guys.
The ping is still much higher than normal but better than it was.
Cheers for help.
