Titanfall (PC) - Data server very low ping, ingame very high ping

I am finding that when playing Titanfall on a PC, whilst the ping to Western (or even Eastern Europe) data servers are around 25ms, ingame ping is usually around 150 (or starts at 70 and increases throughout the game).
Doea anyone else have the same problem  ?

This is the UOTrace that EA support wanted :

As you can see, there are two interesting things about this : The prolexic IP is an anti-DDOS system, and I am wondering if PlusNet are directing all US bound data through that.  The last 3 are EA's servers - in America...
It currently looks like Titanfall data servers are in Europe, but the game servers are in America - hence the awful ping.
Also need to check its all in the right priority...

Re: Titanfall (PC) - Data server very low ping, ingame very high ping

Had a quick game last night.
Looks like traffic is marked OK (Assuming Tos 0xa0 is what game should be)
I was on a server with IP 40.115.59.9, don't know where that is, though it may be europe as the traceroute ends with low pings - but then it could just be that nothing further away is shown.
