Hi, I'm having some terrible issues with latency on my TELSTRA 4GX WI-FI PLUS.
The latency to servers in Sydney is insane, triple and even quad digits.
I am located in Adelaide. Below are some examples of a ping -n10 and tracert.
Ping statistics for 184.108.40.206: Packets: Sent = 10, Received = 10, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 140ms, Maximum = 358ms, Average = 204ms
Tracing route to sy4-sl-a22.fe.core.pw [220.127.116.11] over a maximum of 30 hops:

This has only been happening the last week and a half. The rest of this year has been exemplary. Below, I have added an example of a ping that is useable.
Ping statistics for 188.8.131.52: Packets: Sent = 10, Received = 10, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 45ms, Maximum = 62ms, Average = 53ms
Any help is much appreciated.
