Lag spikes playing CS: GO

Hi,

 

 

When playing CS:GO I get very frequent and consistent lag spikes, where I move more slowly or everything skips back slightly. My ping remains consistent and I always remain connected to the game but the connection isn't fluid. I spoke with a support team member through chat yesterday and the issue wasn't really resolved, they were quick to blame it on Valve's servers.

 

I'll walk you through the trouble shooting steps I have taken to save everyone a little bit of time.

 

-reset modem and router

-tried hardwiring (no wireless) still see the spikes

-disabled all router firewalls

-enabled/disabled all QoS on router, made sure no other connections in my home were using internet

-checked all cables running from wall to components

-speed tests before during and after are always consistent and as they should be (12 ping, 30ish DL, 2ish UL)

-ping tests are also consistent, usually get an "A" rating

 

Here is the WinMTR log to one of Valve's west coast servers

I've also attached a tracert to the same server.

 

Any help would be appreciated.
