I don't think we're going to be able to see if name resolution is a problem via ping. My understanding is that name resolution is performed ONCE, when ping is started, then the IP is pinged from there on out. So, even if there were a name resolution issue, there would be a delay before the first ICMP echo packet is sent, which would not have any effect on the roundtrip times.

That being said, those are rather high ping times.  Are you sure that
your network connection is not saturated?  Can you paste a traceroute
to Google?
