It's no better. TRACERT below - not that I know how to interpret it.
tracert www.fastmail.fm

Tracing route to www.fastmail.fm [66.111.4.56]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 1 ms 1 ms 1 ms BTHomeHub.home [192.168.n.m]
2 17 ms 14 ms 182 ms 217.32.141.6
3 * * 211 ms 217.32.140.206
This is as far as you need to go. There is something very bad in your fibre connection. Normally, the latency on the second and third hops should be in single figures, and with very little variability. Also, note that a couple of packets get lost altogether. Contact BT and have them fix it.
