Packet loss: does this pathping indicate it's on Cox's side?

After ~3 years of a mostly great connection, two days ago I started seeing a lot of intermittent packet loss. Symptoms are interrupted voice chat and heavy rubberbanding in games. 

Does this pathping result below showing 97% packets lost at from hop 4 to 5 indicate it's a problem with Cox equipment? Or could it still possibly be my equipment?

I just want to be sure before I have a technician come to look.

Thanks!!
