Daily Higher Ping At Night Time

Almost daily I've been getting higher ping than what I'm usually getting during the day. During the day/early evening I get around 12ms - 20ms ping. Lately, During the night it's been anywhere from 20ms to 190ms. I like to play games online so this really hurts to play on when I get these lag spikes. Felt like this hasn't been a problem in the past. This past week has been pretty bad.

 

 I use a hardwire connection with my own Arris Surfboard 3.1 modem

Lots of other people on your node streaming video, downloading giant game upates, or playing games, too.

This hasn't been an issue in the past though. This past week has been terrible from 7pm - 10pm. Shouldn't Comcast look into this? It's gotten pretty bad ping wise

I have the exact same issue in Massachusetts around hours of 630 to 1030 at night. Tried getting a new modem but it didn't fix anything.
