Unusually high home/world latency right now

I logged on today in the afternoon and noticed that my home/world latency is unusually high. I play on Lethon-US from new york city. My latency is usually 20-30 for both home and world. This afternoon I noticed that its fluctuating between 200-300 for both. I actually feel lag when I'm just sitting in town spamming my aspects.

I use optimum online from the new york area.

Here's a speedtest result which makes me think that it's not my internet lagging: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2604657852.png

And here's a traceroute I ran:

It's actually fluctuating between 300 and 500 now for both world and home. It's very noticeable. Also my friend from NJ using optimum online and playing on Bleeding hollow/Wildhammer is getting close to 1k latency.

Yup, NJ here as well with Optimum. Maybe 20 minutes ago I was sitting at 500-1000 ms. Dropped down after a while to 200-300, but still way higher than what I've usually seen. I'm actually under a different battlegroup than OP, so perhaps its a regional thing with NJ and Optimum?

Also Optimum Online with 3633 home / 316 world (usually no higher than 30)

The kicker is that after running a check on speedtest.net I'm showing a ping of 16. What gives?

it seems to be an issue between blizzard and optimum, bypassing optimum using a VPN I am able to get good ping(150 ish) for my VPN vs 700-900 world

everything else is okay.
Yep and no response from Bliz to say if they realize what's up :( I swear getting blue responses these days is very rare.
