4 months and 20 techs still bad upload speed

For the last 4 months I've had horrible upload speeds. I've had around 20 techs come out and nothing. Half the time I can't do my job. I'm paying for 35mbs up but I rarely get that. I depend on Cox to be able to do my job because they have a monopoly in my area. I love those gigablast interent commericals where people are blown away by the speed lol. I'm at the point where I might have to move to a different city because I can't do my job since my cox gigablast internet is so bad and they are unable to fix it.

    after i cancelled cable and only using COX internet, my speed was horrible!  I found out that since I had cable in most rooms, all the extra wires and boosters were not needed and actually dragged my speed down to less than 30mb.  A tech came out and removed all the unnecessary cable and equipment.  This fixed my problem!

    Although I was upset that after I took all my cable boxes to the local store, no one bothered to explain that I needed to unhook everything that was not being used.  I fought this for 2 months!
