    Maybe thats when your isp does updates as its a quiet time?  More context as to what you are doing and what your isp is would be helpful.

    ping is just how long it takes for a server to reply.

    many things can affect this, but typically it is caused by high traffic on that server, or at your ISP.

    The remote computer you are accessing is busy meaning you're not the only one awake.
