Re: What is this in my trace route?

Are you on Fibre?  It is likely the connection between the fibre to your site and the fibre optic backbone. I'm seeing as low as 1.65 ms to 10.31.0.1, so it has to be pretty close.

Re: What is this in my trace route?

My trace route is no different. The second hop is basically the first node between you and the rest of the net. Your modem has to connect to something. The 10.x IP device IS a Telus one. It doesn't have a DNS name so it just shows as an IP address
