The thing is, I woke up early this morning 5am GMT and managed to squeak in few missions before I had to go to work. The game performed as should - smooth flight, no delay in messages, etc. When playing last night between 7 - 10 pm GMT it took at least 4 minutes between the time I would type a message unitl it was displayed in the chat box.
Thats way in excess of the effect as I have felt it and I play in the UK between 7-11. Never experience more than 20 secs (bad day) between typing and diplaying and rubb-banding is minor and happens mostly on the ground (WTF?) for me. Your Network provider perhaps?
