Comcast and NorCal here. Same problem.
I poked around a bit. Routing to certain Cryptic servers from NorCal Comcast seem to be half-broken at the moment. Connecting to some game servers (and only *some* game servers, not all) result in dropped packets 10 to 20 percent of the time, leading to the "lag" effect we're seeing. Not sure if it's Comcast's fault or Cryptic's. I thought this would go away soon, but it hasn't for the last two days.
If you have access to a VPN, routing your Internet traffic through the VPN will temporarily bypass this problem.
