Intermittent Slow Speeds, Not Sure?

Most sites I visit load fine. But, some do not. I've been growling at my hosting provider, but again, not so sure now. Can someone please tell me if this looks normal:
  1    99 ms    26 ms    98 ms  router [xxx.xxx.x.xx]
  2  130 ms  157 ms  274 ms  lo0-central10.pcl-ag01.plus.net [195.166.128.182]
  3    12 ms    12 ms    31 ms  link10-central10.pcl-gw02.plus.net [84.93.249.18]
  4    11 ms    12 ms    11 ms  xe-0-2-0.pcl-cr02.plus.net [212.159.1.2]
  5    12 ms    44 ms    32 ms  ae1.ptw-cr02.plus.net [195.166.129.2]
  6    33 ms    12 ms    12 ms  ae2.ptw-cr01.plus.net [195.166.129.4]
  7    11 ms    12 ms    13 ms  Ge-0-1.linx.lon.nodefour.net [195.66.224.135]
  8    11 ms    12 ms    12 ms  83.166.164.85
  9    13 ms    12 ms    12 ms  mx01-xe2.0.0-lon.gs.nodefour.net [83.166.164.34]
10    15 ms    15 ms    16 ms  mx02-xe1.2.0-dry.dc2.nodefour.net [83.166.164.38]
11    15 ms    20 ms    21 ms  83.166.164.54
12    15 ms    14 ms    14 ms 
Trace complete.
Hope that's enough info. If you need more, please, let me know and I'll do my best to provide it.
Many thanks.

Re: Intermittent Slow Speeds, Not Sure?

This trace route looks fine, the second hop to our gateway does have a higher ping but this should not cause any performance issues.
How many other sites do you have this issue with? can you provide the trace route for them?

Here you go:
tracert www.google.co.uk
Tracing route to www.google.co.uk [173.194.78.94] over a maximum of 30 hops:
  1    50 ms    98 ms    99 ms  router [192.168.1.10]
  2    13 ms    20 ms    12 ms  lo0-central10.pcl-ag01.plus.net [195.166.128.182]
  3    22 ms    14 ms  210 ms  link8-central10.pcl-gw02.plus.net [84.93.249.14]
  4    30 ms    12 ms    11 ms  xe-0-2-0.pcl-cr02.plus.net [212.159.1.2]
  5    11 ms    12 ms    13 ms  ae1.ptw-cr02.plus.net [195.166.129.2]

  9    17 ms    18 ms    21 ms  66.249.95.173
10    17 ms    19 ms    18 ms  72.14.236.191
11    *        *        *    Request timed out.
12    17 ms    16 ms    17 ms  wg-in-f94.1e100.net [173.194.78.94]
Trace complete.
Sometimes my IP doesn't change for weeks. I'll check and may reboot my router. Forgot, that may have cleared this type of issue up, previously. So weird. Some sites are quick, some are slow. So hard to tell.
Thanks Chris. Please do let me know if you have any other theories/solutions etc.

Re: Intermittent Slow Speeds, Not Sure?

Everything again looks fine on your trace route. It will be a case of when you are experiencing any issues, run a trace route so we can try and pin-point where the issue is.
