Okay so I have the latency problems so many other have.
I contacted my ISP ... Just an email with my Tracert, and Nettest results in.
I asked them to change the route and shorten the number of steps to the patch server and asked them to help with the bandwidth.
I got NO reply ... BUT ... I now have 6-7 less hops to the server and my bandwidth is better ... its not at the 500kb/s range (Its 200kb / 15kb / 200kb) ... and I still get a little rubber banding but the game is definitely playable.
So I guess my ISP was listening.
I hope this is a permanent fix ... Time will tell I guess.
So I recommend a polite request email to your ISP's tech support department with the tracert + nettest results pasted in. Requesting less steps / an alternate route and help with bandwidth issues.
They might not reply but give them a few days and run your tracert/nettest again.
