[CA] High Latency In Orange County

Anyone noticing high latency in Orange County...particularly over the past few days?

I'm seeing really high ping times and it's definitely impacting my gaming and web browsing. It starts within the Cox network but is persistent beyond it. I have the Cox Premier Tier.

Example: pinging www.microsoft.com

Thoughts? Web pages are loading especially slow over the past 2 days on all machines in my house. Have rebooted router to get some better speed but no resolution to horrible pings.

Looks like MS is the problem, at least from here.

Flaky stuff going on this morning - dropped connection, modem rebooting. Unplugged and restarted it and lookie, lookie:

Edit: I should explain that 4/2 is a big step up for our little corner of the OC. Wasn't much more than a year ago that we got 3/1 and only after enduring serious prime time congestion for many months.

This is a welcome, if overdue upgrade.

Lucky you! My latency finally died down late last night and hasn't returned as of yet. I tried a modem reboot here in Aliso Viejo but we're still 3x1.

My connection was dropping in and out last night. Couldn't find any reason for it on my end.

My internet was fine, as was regular and digital TV. But any on demand content I tried to watch would be fine for a while, then get choppy for a few seconds.
