I've recently moved back to NZ and signed up with xnet with one of their max speed down/128k up plans. Running conection speed tests from various places seem to generate decent results (for nz anyway!) yet for some reason pinging the xtra or orcon game servers come back with times >150ms which is a bit rubbish for national speeds.

Admittedly I haven't done any troubleshooting yet but does anyone else similar issues through Xnet, or am I just special?

On Xnet full up/full down (interleaving off) here:
