Recently starting on the 19th of January, I've had many frustrating issues with my latency. Throughout the day my latency will typically be around 12 - 20 ms, but recently has been in between 100 - 4000 ms for no reason whatsoever. This is detrimental in online games when I play competitively and makes it entirely unplayable. It was especially bad over the weekend as my latency was usually hovering and fluctuating around the 2000 - 4000 ms range. Of course I realise it is the school holidays after all and congestion could be the problem, but it's been the holidays for the past 6 weeks now and I've never experienced this at all throughout the 6 weeks until now. Another note is that it goes back down to 12 - 20 ms at around 9:30 pm and stays like that until the next day at around 9 am where it skyrockets back up to 100 - 4000 ms. My download speeds have also been affected going from my typically 6 MB/s to 15 KB/s which is insanely slow. I've been unable to do anything for the past few days and it is becoming extremely frustrating. Ever since I got NBN I've loved it and never had an issue with it until now.

Sometimes throughout the day my latency will be fine but will have terrible spikes every so often or will fluctuate at an extremely high ping. As of now it seems fine but with a spike here and there. Anyways here is that traceroute.
I have no clue if this is it but here you go. I'm also not a big fan of calling Telstra because all they do is throw me around plus last time I called they screwed our internet up and it was unusable for 2 weeks.
I also find it extremely weird that my internet just randomly starts working as normal again. Also I listed the 6 as megabits when I refer to it as 6 megabytes sorry for the confusion.
EDIT: Way too late to the party
Here you go (I have it macro'd)
Post your modem stats:
On a Premium Home Network Gateway, T-Gateway, Gateway Max, or Gateway Max 2
(TG587, TG797, TG799, TG800):
http://10.0.0.138/ > Advanced > Broadband
On a Telstra Gateway
(Sagemcom F@st 5355):
http://10.0.0.138/ > Advanced > Gateway Settings > Device Info > General > xDSL (Bottom of Page)
On a Frontier Gateway , Telstra Smart Modem or Smart Modem Gen2
(DJN2130, DJA0230, DJA0231, or LH1000):
http://192.168.0.1/ > Advanced > Broadband (Internet Access for LH1000)
Default password is generally 'admin' or 'Telstra'
You're looking for line rates, power levels, attenuation etc
Are the tests being run over Ethernet or WiFi?
Are they being run during peak times (3PM-12AM)?
Nice to see you @Yastiandrie...
@SirKadachi- let's just confirm that your modem is the one with the backup 4G. If yes, it seems like you have lots of dropouts and modem is switching between VDSL2 and backup 4G. Perhaps you have also reached some sort of limit (I am not sure if that is uninterrupted use of 4G backup or cumulative use) when you can get shaped down to 1Mbps (me think)… Or there must be horrible congestion in your area - but if you these speeds and stats you just posted are current...
I think that @Yastiandrie may bring more light to this...
