Trying to troubleshoot constant extreme ping issue.

Good morning,

For the past month or so, I have been getting insane ping spikes and packetloss. Its not limited to a certain game or server, if I go to any online ping test site, it will spike from 500ms to 1500ms consistently, does not matter the time or day. I have tried troubleshooting on my end, replaced routers and modems but no luck. Same problem occurs wired and wirelessly. Techs came down 4 times but they cannot find an issue with the signal. Not sure what else I can do to troubleshoot this issue at this point. Would appreciate it if someone here would give me some advice.

Example ping test below.

    Hello @momt33 and welcome to the Spectrum Community.

    I was able to locate your account from your forum registration details and I have taken a look at your modem. I am not seeing issues with the signals going to your modem.

    With the ping issues you're seeing, do you notice if your general web surfing is being affected?

    Thank you.

    Hey Paul,

    I think spectrum might have done some work in the area last night, there was a 4 hour outage. I'm no longer getting ping spikes. Looking good so far!
