datafeed latency

I have a pretty fast datafeed (usually 2ms) see screenshot.

But every now and again, CME will get a burst of 1000+ trades in a couple ms. and it blows out my latency to 50+ms.

Is this the CME or the data provider? i have a 10Gbe internet connection and dedicated server.

Just wondering if people have been able to avoid these spikes during the day? And how you did it?
