Your connection is only as good as your ISP's hardware. Your data, though, travels over segments that aren't controlled by your local ISP.

Connection speed and the way it's overhyped is, IMO, merely a marketing pitch sold to people who really don't know how the internet actually works, but again, that's merely my opinion. YMMV


Testing on "other sites and MMOs" is hardly a valid diagnostic because the issue may be the route to STO's servers, which may or may not follow the same route as other data transmissions (which, given the absolute multitude of destinations for the internet, would likely be a different route).

Anyway, there have been several users in the northern CA area that have been reporting issues. Try running a traceroute and a nettest as suggested in the troubleshooting sticky at the top of this forum to at least have a baseline of what's going on between your PC and the servers, and to see if your net connection is performing anywhere near as advertised.
