Im a New Zealand player who plays on the Australian servers
On a normal day I get these pings to the servers
Sydney = 80-90
Adelaide = 125
Perth = 150
for the last two days i have been getting
Sydney = 250
Adelaide = 225
Perth = 300
I actually get a better ping to USA which is further away...
I have no torrents running so dont ask me that i just want to nkow what is going on
My friend who lives on in the South Island of NZ is also having this problem.
Anyone got any ideas?

while my connection isnt bad ping wise as your illusion Im also getting a bad connection to the servers. lago meter looks like a lot of yellow sails with red spikes mixed in but randomly during the game tried lower rate, maxpackets etc connection remains the same.
also +1 for nz servers puh-leeeeze
Dunedinite here and i'm also getting this problem :/
getting 200 ping for Sydney whereas i used to get 100-120
getting these probs 2 low ping in practice tho. use to have 50-60 now getting anywhere from 150-300! lame!
Yeap same issue, are you with telstra broadband? It must be an ISP issue, recently they have had serious issues..
Off their website under service status:
"Some Customers on Telstra Clear’s InHome Broadband Service in Wellington, Kapiti and Christchurch, may be experiencing an intermittent loss of High Speed Internet (No Data Transfer).
This means they will will be unable to browse the Internet or send and receive emails."
yea looks like that will be the problem
