Looking at your ping i'd guess you have interleaving switched on. Their gaming profile should switch this off (in theory) and reduce that by about 10-20ms.

Gaming profile switches off DLM capping, and reduces interleave depth/delay but does not turn off interleaving.

You have to ring sky and ask them to put you on the Gaming profile but this doesn't switch interleaving off.

This is a traceroute i have just done, i'm also with sky but have Gaming Profile enabled which in my case had turned interleaving off.

are those results using a Ethernet cable or wireless, the reason i ask is i would expect a lower ping than yours to the bbc if on fastpath, something that sky are known not to enable, and also as a former ukonline customer, who did enable pure fastpath my ping to the bbc was always around12-13ms and some other ukonline customers had lower than that, even with bethere it's 13ms they may have reduced the delay but that's about all they have done
