Today I was getting awful 4.4Mbps (fast.com) at times and terrible ping spikes (up to 250-500ms, server address was 188.8.131.52; tracert log is below). Gaming is impossible with such unreliable connection. I experienced the problem after 8pm, when I started using it. And it kind of resolved by itself past 9pm. The download speed was between 8 and 14 on difference measurements.
Yesterday it was all good at the same time. Two nights before it was as bad as today. It's like a lottery to me every day. Is this a congestion problem (what other people from Ormond would say)? Can this be looked at and amended?

Are you using a desktop or a laptop? I'd like to know if it is connected via LAN or Wireless connection and what particular game(s), software is in-used when latency spikes occur between 8PM.
