Bad Ping Spikes

So my internet speed on my Playstation is alright, I get about 40mbps download and 8mbps upload, however despite this when playing games after certain times I still get really bad ping spikes. My ping can be at an average of around 15-20ms, but then erratically spikes up to 200 every 10 or so seconds. This only happens sometimes when nobody else is using the internet (and only late at night too, around 9pm onwards),  This basically means I can't play games after 9pm, so what can I do about it? My download speed is still fine and is pretty much unchanged, so what's the actual cause of these ping spikes? 

I use a power line adapter, and my suspicion is that there is interference after a certain time however doing various test I believe this may not be the case, given that im not much of an internet guru, I was hoping for some expert community help to figuring out my problem, here is the tracert so that someone can help me figure out if the problem is on my end or the isp.

Re: Please Help Me Figure Out My Problem

Have you tried missing out powerline adapter and try connecting direct with ethernet and see if that helps
