I get:

% ping -c 100 -q
PING ( 56 data bytes
--- ping statistics ---
100 packets transmitted, 100 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 10.311/11.568/13.905/0.769 ms

It's possible that it could be rate limiting ICMP responses.

Whilst doing the above ping, I did find that it timed out on
that hop whilst doing a traceroute, so perhaps some kind of rate
limiting going on there, but I don't think anything that would
affect normal traffic.

I would test by pinging a host inside and outside the BY network,
will help you track down if/where there is a problem.
