I'm pretty confident that it's not my hardware. Mostly because STO is the only game where I'm having this issue. I've been playing a number of other online games today (since STO is virtually unplayable) and have not been having any lag issues in any of them, it's just STO.

If you installed via the website (as opposed to having had a boxed copy of the game some time ago), make sure PMB is not installed/not running on your PC. PMB runs as a limited P2P client, and will allow other users to download the STO installer from your PC, as well as any other game installer that utilizes PMB for downloading, which will in turn eat up bandwidth like Pac-Man eating pellets.
I'll check and disable it on principle but see above comments regarding other games.

Fair enough, mind not quoting it then?
