Consistent Packet loss (25% or more) for six months, extremely disappointed
I am not one to complain but I feel I must make this post for other cox users experiencing the same frustration. For six months straight I cannot stream video *upload or play games consistently on a gigabit ethernet connection. I have replaced all my equipment (modem, router, switches, cable runs) and had 6 different techs to investigate the issue and I still experience this problem every day and it only gets worse. I was recently told it was an issue with the Node and that it was a known issue that has been reported multiple times. I have been told to wait for them to fix it and I feel like there is nothing I can do anymore. Every time I call retention to get my bill reduced for the issue I am met with denial and impatience. All I want to do is simply pay for a good internet connection but since COX has a monopoly in my area have no choice but to be at their whim. All but one tech that has came out has shown any sort of care for my issue while the rest have said they would escalate my issue for me to find out no notes were left on my account and I have to start the process over again and again. COX is hands down the worst internet provider I have ever been a customer of and I really use to love this company which at the point is just embarrassing to even say. The service up to this point is unacceptable and goes to show what happens when you do not need to compete for customers. I will be filing an FCC report and at this point if the problem is not resolved this month I will be using a cellular router with a data plan because that unfortunately looks like it will be the better option at this point.
For any cox techs that reply to help me I already have open tickets regarding this case.
