Cox Cable Box

I had to exchange my tv cable box today because it keep turning off and rebooting several times a day. When they were giving me the exchanged box, the lady asked if I had any other issues. I told her yes and I said that my internet(Cox Also) keeps going out everyday between 1-4 in the afternoon. She asked the normal BS questions, is your modem and router up top date. I said they are both new within the last year and her response was "OH I AM SORRY" . That's it! That's all the help she would offer. I then told her I guess I am stuck with your internet because no other is offered in my area. So my question is what the *** kind of customer service is that????????????????? I then told her I have had service people out several times and it works ok for a week then back to the same. She handed me my new box and said have a nice day. This is why Monopoly's are bad, No where else to go for internet so your stuck.

    Representatives at the Service Centers aren't trained or hired as technicians.  They're trained for sales, equipment knowledge and low-level tech support.  Sometimes you'll meet a skilled representative at a Service Center...but that'd be an exception.  I wouldn't expect a Service Center to resolve any service problems.
