Extreme Latency All the Time

So I went away to visit family for Thanksgiving and now that I'm back home I find that I can't play ESO because of extremely high latency all the time (PvE and PvP). Now it appears I can't even log into the game because it times out after entering my password. If I do manage to get to character select, the game often times out before the loading screen disappears.

I had no issues at all when I last played the game (Wednesday morning, PST), but now the latency meter reads 999+ whenever I manage to log into the game. I've reset my modem and router but that has made no difference. I've run internet speed tests, ping tests and got results that were expected. I've also done web searches and streamed youtube videos while in game and there were no problems there either. When I pinged Zenimax's IP, however, I got results ranging from 4 packets lost to 2 of 4 packets lost.

It appears that there is an issue between my ISP (Charter) and Zenimax. Has anybody else experienced this? If so, how was the matter resolved?
Unsubbed and no longer playing, but still checking the Alliance War forum for the lulz.
