Internet Issue Years Later Still Happening

I have had cox's highest internet plan for as long as I can remember. I have had countless techs in my home including multiple maintenance escalation tickets called out for my issues. Still nothing changes. Every time I call to discuss the same issue, I get the same answers and have to fight to get escalated to a higher tier support so that someone understands what I am experiencing. I now chart all of my packet loss and am building a portfolio to seek legal action. I had the gigablast package which ran me $120.00 per month and can only use the internet efficiently approximately 35% of the time. As I am writing this post I have been incurring packet loss and disconnections for the past 3 hours. If a high tier cox tech would like to look into my account and see how many techs and issues I have had at my address, please do. I am going to keep posting all of my data graphs and information on the forums as calling and trying to get this settled is not working. All I can say is this has been an issue for years in my location and if I had the opportunity to switch providers, I would have left cox a long time ago. Please help!

Feels like the traffic in my area is too much for our node and needs to be upgraded.

  • This sounds like what everyone experiences with this company. It’s my exact experience. Nothing ever changes, we just don’t have another internet option so we’re stuck. Thanks a bunch, Cox. Most unreliable internet I’ve ever had.

    I will be glad to help you determine the issue and point you in the right direction for assistance. 

    1. What modem are you using?
    2. How are you tracking packet loss and to what site. Are you doing a simple end to end, or a trace route to ensure it's not an issue in between?
    3. Are you testing over WiFi or Ethernet?
    4. Can you access your modem and pull a set of modem levels?

    I am using the panoramic modem that cox provides. In response to my email they set up an in home visit with a tech at 3pm again and of course that tech says that nothing is wrong with my internet. the issue really peaks at 8-9 pm. I would like to have a tap or some sort of monitor to show the amount of packet loss and disconnections I get after hours when the traffic is high. Cox, this issue is not resolved and I would like to aggressively ask for help again. I have wasted so much time with techs, forum posts, maintenance technicians, and phone calls. Please assign a high level technician to investigate this issue that has been constant for years. I HAVE NEIGHBORS WHO GET THE SAME EXACT CONNECTION ISSUES AT THE SAME EXACT SECONDS THAT I GET THEM. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD AT NIGHT. I AM BEGGING TO PLEASE HELP WITH THIS ISSUE!
