Do you mean the step up in the minimum ping?
That's probably a change in the way traffic is being routed across the network.

I see this now and again with my connection.

If you mean the spikes in maximum latency then yes I'd agree that is just your line being used but doesn't look that bad to me.

If it was really being hammered you'd see much higher spiking in the average blue section.

What time did you switch your computer off last night?

Looks like the line settled down at just after 1am. If that is when you switched off then it is likely your computer was using the connection for something which was causing the elevated ping response.

Re the minimum ping (Green line) I find this will sometimes change if I switch the modem off for a few minutes.
