Internet going in and out every 10-20 minutes

Ok well it started around Thanksgiving but my internet and all devices 3 TVs and my cellphone all go out for about a minute. But it happens every 10 - 20 minutes. Its extremely worse during and after bad thunderstorms and windy days. Worse at night and early mornings. Ive had 5 technicians come and everyone says they fixed it and it still goes out right after they leave. Im getting extremely frustrated. Ive had 4 techs come in last 2 weeks. They've changed out everything in house. I tell them its gotta be something outside. Why else would wind and rain make it worse. In fact it went out twice while im typing this. Im so sick of running around rebooting and using the smart help app stuff. IT DOES NOTHING.

    I have been having the same problem and recently it's been really bad. My wired connection to the internet, all devices on wifi, and TVs with wireless cable boxes (from Cox) go out. The TV screen goes black sometimes or just pauses. And it's constant all day long. I've reset the modem, and it doesn't help. My next option was to schedule a tech, but based on what you said, that probably won't help either. I would say it's been especially bad ever since Cox did some work on our street in two spots.

    Same exact issue here for over 6 weeks.  4 techs over the last month, multiple resets per day, new wires, connections, splitters, etc, etc, etc.  Getting tired of it.  Customer for many years, if not resolved soon, will probably be switching like most others did a year or two ago in my neighborhood.  Don't need the service from Cox if it's not going to work.

    Very Dissapointed Customer.
