High ping on local servers…?

Have anyone experienced getting high ping on servers that should be local to you? I’m EU so I play on servers from UK, DE, NL, etc. and normally I have a stable 40-50 ping these places. But sometimes when I join a server, my ping is suddenly 150-200. It never goes down and I can feel the lag while playing. The server browser also seems to randomize it, sometimes it says 40 ping on a server, then it changes to 200 if i refresh the list - but it’s still a EU server.
Sometimes restarting the game fixes it, but today I tried both restarting the game and my computer but the issue is still there. I am certain I have nothing running in the background, so I feel like it’s some kind of ping bug in the game. Have anyone else tried this?

If no one else on the server is experiencing the same, then it could well be your internet connection.

If you are playing on WiFi, stop. Get a cable and play wired. The max internet speed you will get on WiFi, IF everything is perfect on 80211N is only 300 MB/s but average bandwidth is typically only 144 MB/s Where as wired you could potentially get 1 GB of speed. So if you are on average wireless speed of 144 MB/s and someone else on you network starts streaming music/video or is downloading something, your ping will go to shit instantly. Also if your wireless router is close to a Microwave oven (30-40 ft), an oven will wipe out your wireless signal when it is in use due to it creating a small EMP field from the magnatron inside the oven.
