High Latency in League of Legends

Over the past two days I have noticed League of Legends throttling my internet giving me in-excess pings of 500ms to 1000ms. How do I know it is League of Legends that is lagging out my connection? Because you close it down and the latency disappears.

I thought maybe it was because I had formatted my machine and LoL was downloading something ingame to make my experience a little smoother, but according to my team mates and friends who play this game - They too, are getting this issue.

What the dealio?
