I have had lag spikes connecting to Harbinger (west coast) from the Washington DC area. Prior to all the lag/latency issues, I had connections of 4 bars consistently, hovering around 100-130ms lag. Now I am more often than not in the 2 bar area, with consistent spikes to red bar territory (usually around 700+ms, occasional spikes to over 5000ms).

These lag spikes have been noticeable the past two evenings when playing multiple characters on Harbinger. I have noticed the issues primarily between 9p and 1a EST the past few nights.

Trace complete.

Connecting to east coast servers I'm stable and my friend in Washington state is stable with no lag spikes noticed when connecting to an east coast server. Hope this information helps solve this problem as I definitely have not had issues like this in the past when connecting to West Coast servers.
