I am glad in a way we both are still having issues. You wouldn't believe, I was just asked to try to restart the router and modem, and try a different Ethernet cable.
We have exactly the same issue/ same measurements
Surely someone can put two and two together and agree it is not an issue in people's houses?
The latest period of high ping latency started on 07/04/2021 at 12:27pm and is continuing. There was a couple of hours early in the morning of 08/04/2021 where Upload speead and latency was back to normal.
The period OptusNBN advised as maintenance was 12.00am - 06.00am on 08/04/2021
Conclusion - at least a local area (I am in Peakhurst, 3km from Padstow) issue, possibly wider - could be all Sydney for all I know... Whilst download is fine, 95% of people will not even notice.
Somehow I am still being told a technician has to come out to my house as a part of the "process".
Please stay on this thread as at least there is some hope that sanity will prevail.
Hey guys, welcome to the party.
It is a wide spread issue in this area, similarly I have posted my troubles below and have been contacted by the case manager with no solutions.
Currently still lagging around with 300ms..
At least you guys seemed to get more informed case managers, mine is still talking about a wiring issue in my house. So on top of my troubles (cannot work from home, VPNs use a lot of upload data), I might have to find time for a technician appointment. But I have to go to work because Internet is unreliable at home! I understand technical issues can happen, but why cannot they at least know about the root cause and not stuff their customers around? Just incompetence all around.
Further thinking, all evidence points at Optus RSP equipment at Peakhurst POI
There are multiple posters on Whirlpool reporting switching to other ISPs and having speed/ping issues immediately resolved SO IT IS NOT NBN!
Also all faults are in that area.
This POI services in excess of 60,000 premises (across all ISPs).
Assume 16% is Optus (conservatively because it was a popular ISP in the area)could be well in excess of 10,000 premises affected since February.
If this is true, this is huge.
You will notice that prior to 8-9am, the ping is low (close to normal levels 10ms etc.) and then rapidly increases to 300ms..
Anyway it has been more than 24 hours and it still hasn't been fixed. .
My results (measured automatically). I sample every hour at 27 minutes past (as you can see in the time stamp). Download which was relatively stable is all over the place now.
Starting to look like a congestion pattern
There were 2 normal readings at 5:27 and 6:27 (even for ping).

And @Winson the latest fault period was well more than a day - it started around midday on 07/04. So it has been almost 4 days
