Strict NAT type & high ping?

So for the past week or so I've noticed that my NAT type is on Strict, I've gone through all the necessary steps on the Activision support website to open the ports for the game on my router and it still says strict. This is affecting how long it takes me to match make and find a game.

Also, for the past week or so I've noticed that when joining games, I can be within really smooth connection games.. then the next minute I'll be in a lobby where my ping is on 1 bar and then seems to remain at 1 bar for a good hour or so, sometimes longer, making the game unplayable. 

Does anyone have any tips/tricks/voodoo magic to get everything running smoothly again please? Everything I've googled/searched/tried doesn't seem to work.
