unless its some coincidence.. I don't have a clue....

I don't think the effect is down to what you think it is. For one, my experience of VM connections is that they're less
sensitive than xDSL partly because of the reason for increased pings on both sides is different. On the other hand, in certain conditions as a result of the extreme bufferbloat VM have been peddling for some time, does mean the above isn't always true.
While you're at it, read about bufferbloat. It's incredibly enlightening (FWIW VM connections usually run with 1500ms of upstream buffer, which is ten to twenty times higher than normal)
