It's been a monster. Each time Fibre problems were sorted the company was bought out and it all started again. The latest has seen latancy double. 40 ms to Paris from London is atrocious. Fibre connection to a London server should be between 5 and 15 ms yet I'm now getting 35. At peak times it can be over 150 ms. BT test server shows 95 when it should be below 20ms. At 50 feet from the cabinet a near perfect connection has been proven so there are no excuses. but you guys must read the latest answer from Timico:

Thank you for providing me with your trace route results.
Anything under 100ms is deemed acceptable due to the development of our core network and the packet shaping software that we have enabled.
The latency that you require we simply can not provide you.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.
