Default Ping increase problem

Hi - hoping someone might be able to help or has at least seen a similar problem.
When using Vent, my ping starts off fine, then steadily increases (I've had up to 21100) then I eventually get disconnected. Restarting Vent helps initially (sometimes) but then it jumps up again, voices are broken-up and I get huge lag (30secs+).
I'm using a very recent iMac and BT Homehub. This happens both with the Windows version of Vent, via Crossover and also with the Mac version. I've done all the required port-forwarding, turned-off the Mac firewall and the Homehub firewall, no change.
Here's a typical traceroute (if that helps in any way):

traceroute to vt1.creativehosting.nl (80.69.72.201), 64 hops max, 40 byte packets

I'm guessing it's a BT issue but thought I'd try here first before I waste half a day of my life on the phone to their awful Indian callcentre.

Thanks

There's about a 99% chance they're traffic shaping your Vent traffic. However, getting them to admit it and change it is likely to be near impossible. Your best bet would be to shop for an ISP that will guarantee you they won't traffic shape Ventrilo traffic.

I was hoping you wouldn't say that! 11 months left on my contract.
Seems I'm not alone with this problem with BT though.
I'll post any progress...
