If you had software that could analyze your performance over an extended period of time, showing the IP path taken and the respective packet loss of the routers in that path , you might see upstream AT&T routers with heavy packet loss, during the periods you are experiencing bad performance...
Did this upstream packet hold to the destination?
Of course, I spent the better part of my ten years on SBC routing, which, unlike Bellsouth, did not traverse the AT&T tier 1 backbone. I don't recall seeing such issues with Level 3.--
