traffic management is normally the gamers friend , with gaming packets being given priority , i say this as a TalkTalk customer .TalkTalk traffic manage there net work with P2P being throttled to death at peak usage times , which is good for me as a gamer .
Now i know allot of people with BT connections that game regularly with out many problems , sure some times they hit a bad central and suffer packet loss but turning the router off for ten minutes can give you a new central .
Things are a bit different if your exchange is 21CN and it may well be a node over loaded
I think some further investigation is needed , would it be possible to see your full router stats ? and a tracert to one or maybe a couple of the gaming servers you use ?
With TalkTalk , not as bad as some might have you believe
