Internet speeds after plan upgrade then modem upgrade still the same (and now worse)
I upgraded from package 150Mpbs Premier to 300Mpbs Ultimate on 09OCT2017 based on a recommendation by a sales person while trying to lower my bill. That day my Upload speed changed to 30Mbps but download stayed around 170 with occasional spikes closer to 200Mbps. After a day, my modem would reboot all by itself. Today 21OCT2017, I have had enough of sporadic internet and constant reboots and I called COX cust support and was told my older SB6141 was not able to support the higher increased speeds and I should not have upgraded speed with out upgrading the modem. I wish I would have known this. The rep sent me the COX approved list of modems, so I bought an Arris SB6190 today, installed it, cable direct to desktop, and called in to have it re-provisioned and I am still getting same speeds as before. I have called in to support several times, tried the CHAT HELP and they insist on rebooting, and rebooting and trying to sell me TV services. At the end of trouble shooting today, my speeds dropped to 40Mbps. I have been at this for the entire day. After searching the web forums I have found these links below:
