Folks who are dealing with this - what ISPs are ya'll on? Trying to narrow this down.

Cryptic has the laggiest servers and most SNR/disconnects of any game I play (I play about 7 MMO/shooters at any time). Sometimes when it has been really bad I run pings and traceroutes (https://support.arcgames.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4657/~/performing-a-traceroute-%28tracert%29) and have found that is indeed sometimes problems with Cogentco servers in Boston/Atlanta. There used to be a fairly sizeable thread on Diagnosing your Internet Connection with Cryptic but I think it disappeared when the forums moved to ARC.
That said, when the lag gets worse after patching (which it did), when none of your other games are affected by lag (which they aren't, ie., not my ISP), and when I can pop over to Neverwinter server (afaik, in the same location and using the same server paths through the internet) and experience virtually no lag or rubberbanding, then again, it's not my ISP, and not even Cryptics connection... it's the game.

Freezing and Stuttering on the other hand is a performance issue, either on your end or the servers end. When it's server side it tends to be the result of the server's processors simply not being able to work fast enough to handle the load, even though the connection between client and server is perfectly fine.
A perfect example of this is how CC used to grind to a halt before they reworked many of the multi-target AoE abilities like Kemocite-Laced Weapons.
