Here we go again, part 5
Who needs a calendar when you have cable internet? It's been 6 weeks since the last upstream noise issue, and like clockwork...here we go again! It's been happening for a few days. This is just one example. I'm not initiating a service call yet since the level of packet loss is tolerable at this point, but I know it's likely to get worse.

Notice I didn't blame Cox. This is a problem with all cable internet systems. It's a function of the technology, not the individual provider. I can't wait until I can get fiber from Cox or from someone else. It will be so nice to have internet that can't be affected by neighbor's actions such as hooking up an old TV or using a kinked cable in their house.
