the reason your ping times are better is because cable has many households(ive heard as many as several hundred) on a single node thats shares 35 mbps..so it sounds like your node was overloaded...
I know... BTW. don't forget different "error correction", "error prevention" techniques e.g. interleaving that can cause the big delta in the latencies.

You're totally right, the upstream is a bit low. But on the other hand the ping time is much better...
