Yes, I have been having huge lag for the last few days, ever since the US begun their Thanksgiving long weekend.

Other forums have indicated though it could be a problem with Bigpond routing, are you with Bigpond, or using a company that is a Bigpond reseller?

Using BigPond here also. Everything else is working fine, like downloading, streaming, surfing etc is completely fine. Only d3 has been spiky for me since Thanksgiving in the US. Anyone has any idea if we can make a complaint to Bigpond? Because technically they aren't providing bad internet speeds, just bad routing probably..Quite sick of the spikes tbh...been 4 days now sigh

Ive been having the exact same lag !@#$ for the past week or so. This morning i decided to try my old lag reducing program. Lowerping. Worked awesomely..back down to normal latency 200-250. If anyones interested to try that its http://www.lowerping.com/

You get a free 30 mins to test it to find out if it works for you. After 30 mins u get dc'd, but you can reconnect straight away again for another 30 mins...anyhow i paid $7 for 1 month.. worth it imo to be able to play again.

Im with bigpond, looks like theyr having problems with routing. Hope this helps some other frustrated people.

im using pingzapper and it does crap all, for the last couple of days I can not even explain how frustrated I am, trying to do MP10 ubers with a connection such as this!!!!

I did a speed test and also rang bigpond, the test and on their side shows it is fine, so is it a blizzard problem?

I'm in New Zealand and I'm getting massive lag all of a sudden (e.g. I attack a monster and it takes like 10-15secs for the attack to register, same with picking stuff up/talking to people).

It had been running fine for the last few weeks but since Saturday it was impossible to play it. My FPS is in the 55-60 range.

Is the lag likely to be a blizzard connection problem?

So I rang Bigpond and they ran a "Test", apparently everything is fine from what they say but the lag seems to be increasing as time goes on..

Z,Z d3 is unplayable

Yup playing now and once in combat totally unplayable, I can download at max speed from anywhere, upload at max to anywhere, so I know its not my connection.

I am currently dead in a game, its been 12 minutes and still standing there waiting for the revive button.

What a joke!

Hey been having same problems as everyone else. The game is unplayable! Screw this crap anyways i'm done with this game.

What a rubbish company to make an online game and provide such poor service.

yea same issues here from Victoria, trust me to check the forum after I reconfigure every setting on my PC, router, modem and gfx software (despite pings and tracerts showing my connections fine). I learned a bit I guess :D

same for me last few days i have had the same symptoms, using Telstra bigpond 4g connection. Outside of Diablo3 all seems fine. I'd say it is a routing issue.

Today seems a little better but still same issue. Even before this thread was made I was getting random disconnects when in any team battle. Sometimes I just join a game and TP to team and few seconds later disconnected.

I thought this was related to barb WW bug or something at first, Iv'e even had a new 4g modem provisioned.

Hope it gets fixed soon. What can we do to address this with Telstra?

The issue is that lag in the US isn't such a big deal. If you are running between 80-100ms normally another 100ms lag is nothing. I find the game playable until it hits 300ms. So in the US that would mean their servers would need to be lagged by about 200-220ms to take a US player to 300ms. As I am in Perth and normally run 280ms, I only need 20ms of server lag to make the game unplayable. Given Aus is such a small market I think the phase "tough sh&t" applies. I also find that the lag is introduced between the Internet and Blizzard so unless pingzapper or otherwise has some kind of secret back door it will do nothing for you.
