Slow Speeds and High Ping in Peak Hours

For the past few weeks, I've had absurd speed drops during peak hours. My ping occasionally hits in the thousands, rendering me unable to enjoy any form of multiplayer. I'm on a 30mb/s plan, it will generally drop to ~10 during peak hours, which is still usable. Occasionally it drops to Kilobytes, not acceptable. My ping starts coming back in the 500-3000 range, which is not usable. I've ran a variety of bandwidth, ping, and general speed tests to measure the issue. Tested on wired and wireless, in safemode with networking and without.

Am I being deliberately throttled during 7-10pm, or is this a hardware/software related issue? Help would be obliged.
