Terrible ping for the last 2 months.

I have plusnet unlimited on a copper cable (not fibre). I while ago when I was gaming on Quakelive the connection went pants and I thought the server had been spammed. Since then my ping has been very erratic and I get lots on ping spikes while playing the game. I did a speedtest on my tablet and that was fine so I thought it might be my router so I changed that. Then I thought it could be my wifi card so I changed that also. But no it is still very poor. The thing that convinced me it was a Plusnet issue is I have been doing a ping trace on my tablet last night and tonight and the results are all over the place (just like they were on my PC weeks ago). I tried to play Quakelive just now and it was unplayable (sometimes my ping went up to 999) and I got kicked from a server.
I'll take a screenshot tomorrow of a ping trace and show you the issue and post it here.
Please can someone from Plusnet look into this for me and sort this out.

Its difficult to get a cable to the router it is just too far. It has been more stable over the weekend (but not perfect) so I shall leave this thread open and if it returns I shall pop back in.
