Multiple outages in the past week - Hampton Roads, VA

I've been getting outages at least once and even twice a day in some cases. Usually when I check for outages on Cox's site using my phone, they've already got a notice up, but they're taking hours to resolve each time. This latest outage is apparently because of "increased internet usage" and their estimated time to fix it is 3:30 AM...four days from now.

Are any infrastructure changes coming to resolve this? I need my internet connection for work and this is getting ridiculous. I've almost burned out my data allotment by tethering my phone for the past few days for hours at a time.

    Agreed, this is frustrating  I'm in Newport News and have had issues since Friday (6/11) evening with the Estimated Time to Repair: 06/18/2021 03:21 AM. Is estimate based on a planned change/upgrade or just a guess?

    This was resolved for about a day and then it started happening again. I'm also in Newport News; is this issue getting a permanent fix any time soon?
