I would really like to know WHAT the nettest is testing and why one should have such high values on there. ...

P.S. I just removed my routers IP ^^
The simple explanation... Trace Route checks for latency. Net Test checks sustained throughput of bandwidth, as well as network access through router gateways and Firewalls... (And Cryptic does warn you need a BROADBAND QUALITY Internet connection to play STO, no doubt because of the needs to support on-demand patching.)

From the looks of your Trace Route, it appears there is an issue with the Cogent Communication Trans-Atlantic link (London to Boston?). You might want to post your Trace Route results into this thread on the Official PWE Tech Support Forum...

and see if PWE can kick Cogent Communications a few more times over their Boston Hub gateway to the STO Servers...
