Ping time on US east servers with low load

Ps4 pro with 1gb down and 250mb up fiber network. When I’m lucky enough to get server list to come up the ping to almost all servers is over 100. this only happens on conan.? i play US east 3609 server (when it loads without 9999 ping) I logged in after patch this morning and the was only 5 players on server yet the ping was 166… ? this makes NO sense. Please speed up the servers or data centers or whatever is needed. Choppy lag connections when the server is near empty is a problem that needs fixed asap.
