Am I the only one getting constant ping increases/spikes?

I see lots of issues on the forum but I don't know if anyone else here has the same issue as me. Constant ping spikes at regular intervals. See:

I'm in the Bristol area. I'm wondering if anyone else is having this same issue?

Re: Am I the only one getting constant ping increases/spikes?

Bumping as it's a weekday. It's been a month and nothing's been sorted and it's driving me insane. Anything dependent on a good ping (e.g. gaming) is unusable at any time of the day, any day of the week.
