Packet Loss, slow/stuttering streams, slow page loads Greater New Orleans Area
Cox seems to be having major issues in New Orleans. Not sure if a few nodes are having issues or what but I have tested the connection is 4 different homes, four different zipcodes (2 different parishes), and at my office and all are having identical issues. Running tracert (using WinMTR) to google.com and several other sites shows 5- 10% packet loss inside cox hops. Very frustrating to have Cox Ultimate and be unable to watch Netflix or other streaming services due to constant buffer or disconnects. Speedtests from various test servers vary from 22Mbps to 325Mbps. The highest readings coming from any test server in New Orleans and the lowest coming from any server outside of Louisiana. Uploads stay consistent @35Mbps but downloads are all over the place and several speedtests were unable to finish (at all five locations).
