I tested quickly last night when I saw this thread - got the usual 7ms on speedtest and pinging that IP directly gave 10/11ms.
It also prompted me to have a quick look at Truenet graphs and sadly Auckland evening congestion (at least in my area) is back in major force - with it more than doubling from <15ms up to 30ms+... I'll ressurect my previous thread on it tonight or tomorrow with more info.

Ah yes, yes it is. And the reason for that is that I'm a complete d**khead! That is the incorrect IP address and I've been chasing myself around in circles! :D The correct address is 184.108.40.206 and I'm getting 5-6ms ping response times from it, so Speedtest's reporting is incorrect.
Further proof that you shouldn't try to diagnose technical issues at 1 in the morning! :D
