UPDATE - I suspect this packet loss issue may be fixed very soon. Maybe within the next week. That's all I'll say for now - I'll update again soon
Yep, another AWS packet loss post. Have none of the past customers with this issue had their problems actually resolved?
I'm consistently getting 0-10% packet loss to Amazon web services (both west and east servers) making fortnite unplayable. No, I do not have this problem with other games I play as they do not use Amazon web services to host their servers. This seems to be an issue with the path cox routing takes to AWS servers.

No I'm not using a puma 6 modem. I have the cisco DPQ3212.

I've already troubleshot by hardwiring to modem directly with the same results. I've unplugged the power on router and modem (although it stays on) numerous times, as well as coax.
Here's a tracert of another cox customer with the same exact problems: https://pastebin.com/index/ehaQBYEd
and another: https://pastebin.com/Qqfxa5UN (there are many more tracerts exactly like these; it also seems like we're all dropping packets at the exact same servers)
now here's a tracert of a cox customer in phoenix (to AWS west) who has 0% packet loss: https://pastebin.com/MX1GfGPC
A reddit thread furthering the evidence that this is explicitly a cox issue and not a personal one: www.reddit.com/.../
I would appreciate real effort in getting this resolved - I know I'm going to be told this is a personal issue when it obviously simply is not. Thanks in advance
This is still an ongoing issue for me and I also live in Oklahoma and playing on the AWS East coast servers and have been experiencing this for about 7 months now. It all started back in the summer of 2018. I have also attempted all the troubleshooting steps in this forum and its unbelievable this issue is still unresolved.
You can literally hook up your same equipment to any other form of internet whether it be phone tethering with Verizon, AT&T, or etc or use a vpn and get no issues but as soon as you go back to cox’s Network you have issues, but they are 100% sure it’s not their fault. Give me a break. Just by those troubleshooting steps you can determine that the issue is on cox’s End. Cox treats it’s customers like they’re still morons stuck in the 90’s on Dial up. Problem is people can easily research their issues online and find fixes and others that have similar issues it’s not just word of mouth anymore. This issue will eventually smack them in the face one day. I hope the NPC employees will actually do something about it sometime this year.
I literally online chatted with 3 different techs and called last night and explained what was going on and referenced this forum and the last tech I spoke to said they would have someone look into the issue further I have the full transcript of the conversation. I also asked if it was really true they don't support online gaming to cloud based services and was reasured this was indeed not true. If anyone want to call the support line and ask about the issue reference "fortnite AWS server issues". If they can't fix this issue it's a definite good bye to Cox.
Also ask for a CAG tech not just a help desk teir 1 agent.
They will not take the initiative to fix this problem plain and simple. They will refer you to talk with Fortnite and say they must put in a request for AWS to have the issue resolved. Only problem Fortnite does not have a phone number for support and their support team is really horrid. Next best thing would be to attempt to contact ASW support, but you must have an account to get any support help and that is for your own service not someone else's. It's unbelievable you pay money to your ISP and they can not take the initiative to make sure their service is excellent and have a problem fixed that so many customer's are experiencing. If you plan on gaming any further into the future leave cox now, because their support is just to blame someone else and take your money.
Lets hope this is the answer we have been searching for
