Ummm, what low and high? 18ms and 50ms are both low, remember you are talking of response time in milliseconds or one thousandth of a second! A human eye takes longer than that to just blink once.

As for your trace routes, they took different routes or ACT has different routing or peering for each subnet? I dunno, only someone who setup the route can answer it better. Maybe you can call or email ACT and see what they have to say?

I have to ask, why are you dwelling on this issue? Are you having trouble accessing the website? Is it slow to load? what is the problem? or is it just that you are getting different numbers?

Please just let it go if you are not facing any issues!
