Cable is a shared pipeline. Got anyone living right nearby?

First, there's no guarantee that your building is the only address on the line, and speed tests don't give you much useful information on pings (only that a connection was esablished and x amount of data can be pushed through during a given period of time). Yes, low speeds can be caused by packetloss, but high speeds alone don't mean that all packets are getting through. If it goes away "on it's own", then I'd wager that you've got someone else eating mad amounts of bandwidth. If it keeps up, then the problem is probably on your end.
