Internet gets high ping at same time every morning


Internet gets high ping at same time every morning

I noticed over the past few days my internet connection gets high pings at about 12:30 am.  Can anyone explain this.

Here is the tracert I ran at that time.  Notice a good amount of the latency is on the att network.


Then it clears up about a half hour later.
