Ohh okay! Finally something makes sense. So it's not related to my ISP, but this Verizon backbone. I wonder if they are aware of the issue, or can/will fix it? Do you have any knowledge about that stuff? Thanks for at least clarifying that issue for me. Sigh of relief at least.. Haha
As long as that Verizon backbone is having issues there will be connection latency.
Doing several tracert's has shown that its on all of there backbones.
My guess is there is a network outage somewhere or the backbones are just receiving a lot of traffic atm.
It should resolve itself, but as long as one is down or not receiving packets there will be issues.
