exactly, it doesn't matter how great your internet speed/ISP is
it's server base lag not internet speed lag..
i have also noticed that it has only affected me since the server maintenance tuesday night

Seriously? I'm on Bigpond ADSL and it's lagging like crazy for the last 5 or 6 hours - totally unplayable. I did a tracert and got a ping increasing dramatically at the telstra gateway. I rang them up but with no effect. I'm at my witts ends with this.
If this is happening because it's friday night in America......

yeh unfortunately because of how ADSL works in australia one person can get good service and another bad.. in most cases because of how Telstra / Telecom (back in the days) has built the national network alot of it is bad as they don't prioritize ADSL for game latency rather a connection established that's enough to retrieve and download emails...
ADSL has too many local issues from beyond aussies exchange that blizzard have no control over, congestion, distance from exchange , copper faults in the line, the interleaving channel the ADSL port programmed from the exchanged could be incorrect (due to Telstra offshoring most of its broadband operations offshore to manila/ india who do not understand how to rectify these errors) the list goes on, I been on projects with internal Telstra broadband operations for the last several years, I have seen the scale of the national network and how many services faults there are etc. I blame partly on behalf of Telstra having fired alot of skilled and experience aussie engineers replacing them with offshore unskilled workers to manage our national networks.
Interesting you say that Calum, I just went through a period of having a phone line fault (which killed my access to the net) which took them 7 days to fix. When I asked them what the problem was, they said it was a 'mix up at the exchange'. Two days later I have this latency issue - something I've never had prior. I can't help but wonder if they're connected.
edit: interesting... I just resetted the computer and modem and it now seems to be working.
