Today I've noticed high latency in general, for example while pinging google.ca I am frequently getting pings in the 1000 ms range. Normally it's in the 15-30 ms range.

 

A sample from ping:

...

64 bytes from 173.194.33.24: icmp_seq=309 ttl=57 time=1147.929 ms

64 bytes from 173.194.33.24: icmp_seq=310 ttl=56 time=1147.698 ms

 

--- google.ca ping statistics ---

312 packets transmitted, 309 packets received, 1.0% packet loss

round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 11.206/859.714/1362.229/280.588 ms

 

I also ran shaw's own speedtest, and got a ping of 632 ms, the download and upload speeds seemed fine. Just a very high ping. This behavior just started today, I've made no changes at my end so I assume Shaw is having some issues?
