  • I was just telling my wife how there's constantly a shortage every day but they expect full payment every month, they should compensate us on all the shortages because it happens multiple times a day

    No, you are apparently not the only one. After over 20 years of service with Cox at our residence, it was finally time to say good bye. The service has progressively gotten worse over time (especially with-in last few years) with little to no upkeep of the infrastructure (atleast in our neighborhood). It was only a matter of time before Cox started getting competition and losing grasp on their duopoly as for about 17 of last 20 years, only options were Cox or AT&T DSL. Now there's fiber, wireless 5G etc. 

    I had no other option (DSL was pretty much dead), so I really had no choice but Cox until now.

    Cox, if you want to willingly retain customers, you NEED to do better. The times of simply keeping customers because they didn't have a choice is diminishing.

      They won't fix their own problems. If you notice they all use the same copy/paste responses. Just like when I worked for directv I would see that all calls eventually push you to a service call. 

  • Hello, sorry to hear you are having an issue with your service. I would like to assist and investigate this issue. Please send us your full name and address in a private message.

    We have had issues with the internet constantly dropping for the 15 years we have lived in our house. They always want to try and charge us for a service cal and then they claim nothing is wrong. How are they going to charge 90 a month for spotty internet? Going to have to switch to AT&T  because cox has horrible customer service

    I have had techs out checking lines and replacing modems (I am paying the monthly fee for line insurance but nothing gets fixed). So far service still sucks. I have to reset my modem at least once a week, and in a 1300 sq ft, one story house I have to have 3, yes 3 wi-fi extenders just to get my "panoramic" wi-fi to the bedrooms and other areas of the house. Ridiculous. I am waiting for a fiber optic company that is moving into the area. Yes, I'll lose my email addresses I've had over 20 years as a Cox customer, but the headache of bad service should be over.
