Giant Packet Losses

I'm having lag issues both ingame and when conecting to GW2 website the mtr doesn't have anything that I would see as problematic except for this particular bit (everything else is 0 packet loss or i cant tell the name of the server i think? i can post the entire thing)
Host Loss% Snt Last Avg Best Wrst StDev
9. ae-1-3101.ear1.Frankfurt1.Level3 80.0% 6 25.9 25.9 25.9 25.9 0.0

happens usually on friday evenings ( well now ) but im not enough tech savvy to know whats the problem etc so if anyone can help would be much appreciated.

  • Looks like your Tier 1 Backbone is having issues. You can talk to your ISP, and ask them to contact them.
    You could try a VPN that uses a different route to the GW2 servers.

    Good luck.

    any recommendation on which to use etc?

    I'm sure you can Google 'free VPN' and find some options.

    Good luck.

    I've been having lag issues as well, which seems to have came from another Level3 backbone server at a different location. I believe Level3 has been having major connection issues for the past month.
