Seeing latency when gaming can be incredibly irritating to state the least but we can certainly review the service to see if there's anything impacting it from within the Rogers network.
Are you able to post the signal levels from your Gateway? You'll be able to find them by logging into the modem. Also, can you confirm if you've run a traceroute to the affected server you're connecting to? This would give us a better idea of where the latency is occurring.
I don't know how to do the signal levels from the gateway. But here is a Tracert I did just now. In this instance, the timeout looks to be in the USA. Sometimes I get up to 3 and they may also be in Canada! Thanks!

Good morning @pitfall21!
Did you perform this test while you were connected via Ethernet or WiFi?
Could you also please include the full tracert results? We need to see all the hops in order to draw any conclusions from this test.
I spoke with Rogers on the phone and they can't do anything about it as many of the timeouts are in the USA. Anyway, thanks for the help.
Timeouts are expected and not an error. Most networks these days block ICMP/Ping for security reasons. I do this myself on my Sophos XG firewall.
So after being sucked into Rogers once again due to a 1Gbps deal in my building at a very decent price (And no bell fibe availability), I'm back a full year later and I'm having the SAME EXACT issues. Is there something going on in the area? Inconsistent ping accross all games, ping spikes going from 40-100ms, ideally on a good day I have a stable 25ms, but that's very very rare.
I got fed up around a year ago and just decided to go with a DSL connection, but I think I made a mistake coming back to rogers even though I am paying the same price for a 50mbps DSL and a 1Gpbs cable connection, seemed like a good deal right?
Previously techs have come and said that theres "nothing" they can do. Is there anyone from Rogers that can actually help me with this? I'm honestly considering just cancelling this account again.
