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
One more user here with most likely the same faulty router (what else could possibly be the problem? (sc)). While every other server works fine, Fortnite connection shows a beautiful, up to 70+% packet loss on the upload side.

C:\Windows\system32>These are my tracerts. I constantly get 10-20% upload packet loss on fortnite and it's been this way for about 6 months now. Hoping someone can help fix this.
