    I use a Verizon USB modem. Up until yesterday I had no issues with any of my online games then suddenly as of yesterday I'm spiking upwards of 12k MS on all games. I was using WoW as my testing grounds but even Star Wars is doing it now. As a side not I'm also having an issue where when I'm typing the tracer guide randomly jumps around or deletes everything I've typed at random. Don't know if it has anything to do with it. Even servers that are a located less than a mile away. Can anyone help?

    Appreciate the help!

    i would suspect some sort of infection. go to security.live.com and run the ms scanner there, then run a malwarebytes scan. then update your antivirus and run a full scan. if that doesn't find anything, we can try something else.

    just had a thought, are you using a 64 bit browser by chance? this may be the cause.

    Have you spoken to the ISP to see if there is any utilization issues?
