Creating yet another thread on this as previous ones have gotten no response & the open ticket I've been replying to for 2 weeks hasn't produced any fixes.
I've seen a couple other threads so I know I'm not alone. I've played without issue since beta and as soon as 1.5 hit I've been mostly unable to play at all because I lag into the beginning of every match 10 seconds after my opponent. Replays will show me just sitting there while my opponent splits workers, etc.
I've double checked all my home network hardware, I've tried using a different client (Mac vs. Bootcamp Windows, etc.) and both clients encounter the issue.
This is immensely frustrating as I've been basically unable to play for 2 weeks.
I've got a running ticket, have posted on the other support forums, and have contacted BlizzardCS on twitter, I've been directed to post here even though it happens under Bootcamped WinXP as well as the Mac client.
On top of checking out all my hardware to make sure it just didn't go bad (magically on the day of the patch) I've plugged my computer into our connection bypassing the home network setup completely. No luck. It's not on my end. Fix it.
Also note that before 1.5.1 (i.e., 1.5 until this morning) it was a 3-4 second lag. Blizzard patches fixes in, and this problem got worse. Can't make this stuff up ...

I'm not starting as late as 10 seconds, but when i used to be able to split and start probe production within 2-4 second of game time. I have noticed when i finish splitting as such the game timers normally is around 10 seconds.
TLDR: it appears my client is loading in 5-7 seconds after start of the game and opponents
got the same problem to me too.
10~16seconds initial lag in any multiplayer mode.
seems like its interacting with the server(shows the WAITING SERVER kinda pop-up soon as my game-load ends.)
changing graphics doesnt work,
I ve got 2networks , checked both and gets the same issue.
I play from japan and have the TWKR account ,getting the usual +2~3 initial lag but acceptable.
so im playing on TWKR for now...
seems like its the enUS server problem(just a guess)
is this issue to come to an end? is BLIZZARD going to fix it? need a response here..
please fix it ASAP...plz
This is a big !@#$ing issue and I've seen a TON of people complaining about it. Things like this are GUARANTEES to put people in disadvantageous positions from the very start of a game. At a high enough level, this is a game breaking issue, especially if you are an aggressive player and rely on early game aggro a lot. It frustrates me to no end that someone from Blizzard hasn't said something about what they are doing to fix this.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
