NA server - connection timed out

For last 3 or 4 days I have only been able to login once and I've tried MANY times. Opened support ticket but just got sent the stock troubleshooting tips and I'd already tried all of them. I've also searched for how others have fixed this problem but nothing has worked for me. I can connect to Europe server but that doesn't help me. Below is the info I sent when opening the ticket. The reinstall problem mentioned in it went away the next time I opened the game. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ken

In the past 3 days I have only been able to connect to the game one time. The rest of the time when trying to connect to the NA server I get a variety of error messages such as: "Connection to server timed out", "Could not retrieve announcements" and "An unexpected internal error has occurred".
I have tried the troubleshooting tips listed in the support articles such as power cycling all equipment and changing DNS servers to 8.8.8.8 but they have not solved the problem. Internet browsing and all other games work without a problem. I just tried deleting the game from my PS4 Pro and reinstalling it. The reinstall is now stuck at Game Update 81%.

pathping results to the NA server are:

    Here you go: 200131-001850.

    Thanks for looking into it. Last response I had was that they were escalating the ticket. It is driving me nuts. The few times I had the connection timed out issue in the past it went away after waiting a little while. Not this time, still can't log in.

    BTW, I said "Opened support ticket but just got sent the stock troubleshooting tips" after the first response on the ticket. To leave it at that isn't fair to the team working the ticket. While nothing they've suggested has helped they responded in a timely manner to the original ticket and to my follow-ups and escalated the ticket when it became obvious the standard troubleshooting tips weren't helping. I think the tier 1 support folks handled this as well as can be expected and I appreciate the timely responses.

    To follow up on this, if I connect using VPN I can log on to the NA server so it appears to be a Playstation or ISP issue.
