gigabit but upload speed less than 1mbps

modem is netgear cm1200 + netgear xr500 router. should have zero issues. yet constant packet loss throughout the day, even at night time. the last few nights have been especially bad. I am a streamer and tonight I cannot even stream because my upload speeds are about 0.25 mbps. this is UNACCEPTABLE.

over the past year, I've probably had 5+ techs come out and all say the same thing. I had the upload speed issue for about 3 weeks straight a couple months ago and it seems to be back now. cox gigablast costs MORE than actual fiber and I'm getting UNUSABLE upload speeds for streaming.

I'm located in Tucson AZ

    Same issue going on 2 months now. I can barely do my job. I'm probably going to get fired at this point because cox can't fix their issue.
