Ping to where? What time of the day? Do you have a master filter? What are the modem stats in your connection?

Yeah, noticed this also, seemed to be good for a few days since they sorted the AUS bandwidth 'issue' but now Im getting spiked lags and really bad ping, worse than before.BF3 Servers to AU are unplayable right now.

Seems to be just the AU servers that Im getting this on, the US speedtest servers show the usual.

379 ping to Aus! Never been that bad.

Pinging [] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from bytes=32 time=129ms TTL=249
Reply from bytes=32 time=119ms TTL=250
Reply from bytes=32 time=130ms TTL=250
Reply from bytes=32 time=112ms TTL=250

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 112ms, Maximum = 130ms, Average = 122ms

Now is a little better now...but it's not good enough. it should be below 10. Because I am running on UFB.

+1 for all the above

or specifically, pings are 3x (and up) higher to anywhere, download+upload is a third usual speed

tracert -d

Tracing route to []
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms
2 * * * Request timed out.
3 98 ms 100 ms 97 ms
4 104 ms 107 ms 110 ms

Trace complete.

Being attacked by the look of it. The guys have worked hard to mitigate the effects, not entirely successful by your comments here (everyone's), but better than we have before. Of course the attacks change but at the end of the day we can't hide the DNS servers from the internet and these latest attacks spoof customer ip addresses....its an arms race for sure.
