Lobbys full with high pinger

Since 3 days playing gears is a real pain for me. I m in Europe and was used to play with guys with nearly equal pings. But since monday every single Match is Full with guys 80-120 ping. So what happened??? Mine ping is always between 10-20. Is high ping the new black now??? Something wrong with Servers??? I was really looking forward for Operation 4 but under this circumstances it will be unplayable for me!

I am UK, and i had some spikes Monday and yesterday. It was odd, because i had not had it before. My ISP has been the same for years and years, so my system is very stable.
