The issue is others are posting to this thread as a general complaints instead of making there own threads, which has nothing to do with the OP's post which was clearly a peering point issue.
Now that everyone has pig-piled in, there are 3 or 4 different issues being discussed and little is common between the people complaining
I think there are only 2 issues being discussed here: The OP's problem with high latency on a third-party's network(out of VZ control), and the major timeouts/latency within Verizon's own network for 6 people including myself, within a 50 mile radius of Central NY. OP's issue is less clear since we only have 1 trace route to go by. However, the people who are suffering the timeouts and have posted trace routes(3, including myself) have pretty much all confirmed the problem
