Issue with lag spikes at 10 pm or 11 pm ish every night

Hello,

 

I currently have AT&T DSL 3.0 MB/s. When my connection is stable, it usually averages around 2.8 MB/s on speedtest.net or on AT&T's test site. However, most every night around 10 or 11 pm my connection becomes incredibly unstable, with pings in the 200s or higher and DL speeds anywhere from .4 MB/s to 1.2 MB/s. This never used to happen, and it only became an issue sometime in the Fall of 2012. Around that time our internet went out for the night and when I called AT&T they said they were working on lines in our area. Ever since then, we've gotten this terrible lag spike at the same time every night. It's very inconvenient because this is when I use the internet the most, and I get pages that don't load when I'm trying to do work online, and I get kicked out of games do to lag when I'm trying to play Battlefield 3.

The connection seems better than before, but it's still wildly inconsistent. Like it will be at 2.8 mb/s and then for a period of 10 seconds or more it will go down to less than 1 and then go back. This really screws me over when I'm submitting forms online or in a multiplayer game.

Huge spike starting at 8:15 pm tonight. Went down to .5 mb/s for 30 seconds then right back up to normal again. Still kicked me from my game though.

Did you ever get any resolution to this? it seems like you gave some information and were ditched in the end based on what I can see right here, I'm dealing with a similar problem (it starts around 6 to 7 pm each night though) atm and am all over the place trying to figure it out, that's why I ask.
