[speed/latency] Serious lagging while playing web-based games

OK here's the formalities:

DSL Speed (Kbits/Sec) 3360 768
Margin (dB) 16.7 10.0
Line Attenuation (dB) 50.7 31.5
Transmit Power (dBm) 18.9 11.9

The only differences in any of my numbers is sometimes the ping is around 200, otherwise stats and speeds have been very constant for over two years.

Now the problem. My wife and I both play flash- and java-based online games. For the past week or so while playing either type of game, the games work fine, then severely lag for 5-10 seconds, then go back to full speed for 10-15 minutes, then the lag repeats. And so on. It doesn't matter if just one or both of us are playing, and it happens on both my laptop and her desktop.

Could this be a problem on Verizon's end, or did both of our computers get sick at the same time?
