I'm located in Edson, AB. Currently at home for the holidays, and I've run into major problems with high ping. Online games/streaming video are currently unusable, and webpages are taking a noticeably longer time to load. When pinging google I get the following:


Pinging google.com [] with 32 bytes of data:

Ping statistics for
Packets: Sent = 9, Received = 8, Lost = 1 (11% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 593ms, Maximum = 2743ms, Average = 1611ms


Testing several times results in roughly the same average ms, but up to 50-100% packet loss as different times. 



Tests were completed with a LAN connection, and only essential background processes.
