Latency variation, packet loss

I've had an issue with latency for the past several months. I've had 2 techs out, but my line came back clean. One did send a request to maintenance to work on my node because it showed something which I was hoping would fix it but it didn't. Below is a couple examples of what's going on, I've pinged Google and the first hop after my modem for reference.

 

GOOGLE

Ping statistics for 2607:f8b0:400a:804::200e:
Packets: Sent = 200, Received = 196, Lost = 4 (2% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 13ms, Maximum = 192ms, Average = 43ms

 

FIRST HOP

Ping statistics for 2001:558:4082:4a::1:
Packets: Sent = 296, Received = 296, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 6ms, Maximum = 260ms, Average = 20ms

 

I generally notice this when playing games and a latency variation symbol appears, buffering when streaming, or while trying to work and VOIP apps have issues. This issue seems random, but I do notice it more during the day, could it be congestion? My modem levels look good according to Comcast. Any help is appreciated.

Have you had any luck getting this fixed? We are having the same issue and just can't get it resolved.
