[speed/latency] Additional hop appeared out of nowhere?

Anyone else seeing this additional hop having appeared out of nowhere? See hops #3 and #4, what is the additional FairPoint hops for if anyone knows? I've noticed that with this additional hop, the latency at ~8PM (when the Verizon ALTER.net peering kicks us in the face) has gone from ~150ms to now over 300ms, even 400ms+ at times.

I can't watch anything on Youtube or Hulu. I can just barely surf, and I can't even do gaming.

Tracing route to google.com [173.194.43.36]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

Well, I don't seem to have that hop but it certainly is awful tonight. The worst I've seen it - over 300ms roundtrip at times.

I'm going to hop back on my Verizon 4G connection - 80ms RT with 12Mb/s down and 8Mb/s up here fairly off the beaten path. Sad, sad, sad that the mobile network is SMOKING a FTTP setup!

Wow, I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed we've reached the Fail Point. Before I found this thread, I started searching to see if Fairpoint has a secret bandwidth cap that we might have crossed. My tracert looks pretty close to yours.

I'm out in the woods of southern New Hampshire, for what it's worth.

I wish there were more options and less monopoly when it came to internet providers.
