Why am I getting super high ping bursts?
I have had awesome service for years up until several weeks ago when I started getting huge lag from a bottleneck somewhere down the line. Its sporadic in duration and time of day, but I would say average once or twice an hour and lasts several mins (sometimes worse in frequency). I have restarted my router many times to no effect. I do work in IT and tried to see if I could see the source of the lag via 'tracert' to google's DNS. I found about 4 hops out was the issue and seen huge spikes on 188.8.131.52 (600ms to 1000 ms) and also seen a relatively large lag on 184.108.40.206. No lag was detected on my local network or 2 hopes out from running pings for several mins to each hop closer to me. Maybe this can help someone find some faulty equipment. It's a very recent development, just weeks and I hope it can be resolved so I can game again. If this is not the appropriate forum for this info could someone please give me a contact I could email with issue.
