High ping problems

I usually get an average ping of less than 10 on British servers, today however i have been receiving pings of 180 so Css has just become unplayable. I am currently using Virgin's 20mb Broadband. I also just recently installed Vista transformation pack 8.0 but heard reviews afterwards about how this can affect gaming and uninstalled. The two reasons i made this topic for really was to find out if: 1. It's Virgins broadband playing silly buggers and is happening with other people 2. It's Vista Transformation Pack is slowing it down, even though its uninstalled. Oh and no posts just saying how crap Virgin broadband is, i don't pay for it. Thanks in advance

    Virgin Media - Cable T.V. Internet and the other thing xD
    Virgin Atlantic - an air port company thingy.
    Virgin Mobile - mobile phone company.
    Virgin Megastore - CD shop etc.
    and a load of others :S

    I have the same problem, except I'm running 2mb XD yep it really does suck to be us
    The only thing I can think of is make sure no other computers are using the internet at the same time. I find that is mostly the problem for me, but i still get shit connection.

    Ohh and guess what?, I'm Back ;)
