Since Pando is only required to download the original installers you can turn it off or uninstall it once you're done. Any lag that was being generated by Pando would be local to your machine and wouldn't impact our servers at all.

Quite literally 100% of the players I have spoken to are experiencing this. People from 3 continents, people near and far, all across the US. Everyone.
It's easily most apparent in the ettenmoors, but also very observable in several other PvE locations, the end game instances etc...
Yes I have. I've logged in both from here at work (my desktop here isn't a screaming game rig, but it's decent and out connection while good is shared with several hundred people), at home on 2 different desktop PCs hardwired to my home LAN and two different notebooks on that same network connected via WiFi ( I have comcast cable). I've even player with 4 machines at home all logged in and playing together (my family plays). All machine are of varying stats from very good to "I may have spent a lot more money than I needed to". I didn't experience any lag on any of the machines either during Solo play nor while grouped.
As others posting here have also stated that they are not experiencing lag and at least one has posted a wireshark showing he isn't seeing anything it's pretty clear this is not a 100% of the player base issue.
Given that fact, and the fact other games seem to be seeing a similar spike in lag reports, it's possible that we may not be able to 'fix' this as it's not something we have control of.
