If it's always the same hops going high, it's usually overloaded servers at those hops or overloaded paths between them.
Disabling IPv6 seems to make them faster as the modem only has to send one type of data
Thanks for the info.....it's "prime-time" now and sure enough the same server/router is high ping again :-(

All you can do is complain to TWC, if there's enough, maybe they'll split nodes add a server...
Don't hold your breath untill Charter Spectrum takes over, not much will improve. Some areas like here in Ohio are hodge podges of 40 year old infrastructure that Charter knows is bad and will be replacing.
Well, thanks for the help anyway.
I had an idea of trying to use the TWC city-wide wifi around the area to try the ping to confirm or deny the idea that it is not just limited to me.
It's most likely what ddevos said. The utilization on your node is through the roof. So during peak times when the entire neighborhood is on the node is overloaded. There are things that can be done. A service tech would have to go through the extra steps to get a system tech to look at the node and balance it. I had the vary same issue until a few months ago. Tech after tech will say levels are good. Or switch equipment. Which in my opinion The UBEE is much better than the Arris. But mainly only when it comes to WiFi. As far as modem capabilities the Arris will keep up with the UBEE no problem. What you need is a service tech that has a good relationship with the system techs that maintain the plant in his/her area. They can look into issues that may occur at the node. In my hub they actually added a router, but it took years of customer complaints and the hub tech sitting around not knowing whats going on. Once all the extra homes were built and ATT uverse came to town they had to fix the issues. Customers were dropping left and right. Its much better now. 22ms ping on average and 331down 21 up on average. Of course server and time that is tested will fluctuate this a bit.
