Ping spikes & lagging out since 4.11 (Shaw Cable)

About 2-3 weeks ago my in game ping has been sporadic at best. Before this I had a constant 70-80ms ping all the time with no issue. Now I get constant laggin out, spiking to over 900 and crashing for a minute or two before resuming and working at 80ms for about 2-3 minutes then repeating the lag cycle.

I have very brief times/games when everything works fine but those are few and far between. I finally decided to check things out and stumbled across this thread. I ran a tracert and found I am timing out at the same point a lot of other people were before:

That being said, it seems Riot doesn't really have a handle on their third party vendors who host their routing to their servers. Does anyone have a reliable way to route around this failure? VPN or otherwise? I'm willing to pay the extra if I must. I enjoy this game and am honestly quite addicted. It frustrates me beyond belief to put many years into this game without issue and then all of the sudden be basically unable to play for the past 3 weeks.

Anyone's input and help is greatly appreciated.

I live in Southern California and I have Time Warner Cable and my provider and the same issue has been happening to me. I use to have 17 ping back in S3 and then when S4 came I started to sit at 50-56 ping. Now I'm having ping spikes as well. One temp fix I found that has fixed the spiking issues was sharing screens in a Skype call. Idk why but it works! Streaming with OBS use to also fix my spiking problem but now that OBS had it's most recent update, I lag ever harder when I stream

I'm experiencing major ping spikes, too. My ping randomly spikes to 500ms many times during a game. It's horrible. I live in Texas and have Suddenlink. This only started happening within the last month or so... it's unplayable..

my computer gets huge freezes for like a minute randomly from like 30 fps. I looked for solutions on the internet and realized that my computer was overheating. Stuck it in the freezer overnight and now its permanently frozen.

Same problem here. Sometimes, my hero can not move or do anything. The problem has just started like 2-3 weeks ago.

I've been having issue for months! Some days if I'm lucky I could play and get spikes to around 300-500 every 10 seconds. Most of the time its 700-1000. Please fix this Rito.

Yeah right now i get ping spikes and then it gets stuck at 500 ping and just stays like that until u disconnect and reconnect to the game again. I've lost so many games due to this happening to me and my teammates.
