Daily Area Outages

There has been area outages on my internet multiple times a day for the past 5-6 months. Sometimes it's only down for a few mins, sometimes 1-2hrs, and today it's been down since 9am and it's now 9:30pm. When contacting cox they always suggest modem resets and basic troubleshooting which is frustrating because it's an area outage not my house only lol. Also its frustrating b/c they don't automatically credit the bill. You always have to contact them and go through the whole process of explaining and telling them when it was out for the credits. Why are WE even paying them for service at this point?? Even a technician came out last month and didn't see anything wrong. I just don't know what to do any more because it's clearly a bigger issue and they haven't really escalated it.

    Oh no. Looks like I'm joining your club.

    My internet has been going in and out multiple times a day. Going on 9 days now. And it's my whole neighborhood of 100+ houses.

    Even a technician came out last month and didn't see anything wrong.

    Yup, live chat tech support was useless for me as well.

    I know this is going to happen if they force me to request a technician, and I would have to pay 75$. But the whole neighborhood is experiencing this issue.

    Last time I contacted twitter cox customer care, they sent a technician free of charge when my neighborhoods internet went out for a whole day when it rained... I tried contacting their twitter representive again, but it's someone different who said I have to pay 75$ for a technician. It's like they're missing a brain. What part of "neighborhood" don't you understand?

      I went to the store location today and they sent a supervisor tech out. The tech assured us that the issue was resolved from a wire underground. I told him I think it's a bigger issue than that because this has been going on for months now. He was confident it was fixed. Guess what? My net just went down again today a bit before 8pm CST and still no service. Just don't know what to do any more. May have to move to AT&T but wondering what the feedback is on their service in the neighborhood.
