What Amfarious says is true, I connect through Demon (one of the better routes out of the UK). Between 17:00 and 20:00 the Lag is beyond beleif for me well in excess of a minute. After 22:00 local time I'm down to the 5 sec or less situation. Same when I log on first thing in the morning.
Genesis as an example at 19:00 I was getting between a 40 and 70% packet loss, the response was okay WHEN it actually got through. Ill do a Trace and let you know the results.
