you didn't mention that it only happens after 7pm..

Probably congestion, is that speedtest to a server in NZ or overseas?

I'd be more concerned that you're getting up to 99ms ping to your router...

Yep, would be concerned about the latency on your internal network first - is there anything else connected to the router or PC the trace was performed on?

Second, What are the stats report by your router or internal modem?

Third, if your router stats still look good I would suggest that you scan you PC with an updated antivirus and several malware scanners.

Good luck!
