It was kinda bad at times in my raids last night. We were joking that PvP lag was leaking into our trial. It was frustrating though.
Download a program called ping plotter. There is a free version. Then start ESO, akamai.com ping path. Akamai I think is their DDOS protection and they change their IP ever 5 min. It has been my experience that ae3.tata-atl4.aloha-egal.netarch.akamai.com is the jump before the final destination and has random high Ping and high packet loss.
Due to the high demand on the server side and fast input/output of the game this problem may never go away. Until more calculations is moved back to client side, but then Stadia and cheats/bots is an issue(my quess).
This is all just my opinion and observation.
