My latency when playing online games, and watching youtube/netflix spikes massively at random times, for a few seconds.
We've had a Virgin engineer come to our house and 'fix' it twice but it still hasn't fixed the issue. It also happens on my phone and my friends phone, although the rest of my family have said they've not noticed anything. It's been going on for over a year now,
Can a poorly grounded PC cause anything like this?
 
You need to do some more testing to find the source of the problem. Leave a constant ping run to your router IP. If you do not see ping spikes in your test you need to suspect the internet connection even though other people are not seeing it.
