New Orleans Area - Another Slow Upload Speed Here

I see a lot of posts dealing with slow upload speeds, here is mine lol. 

Why are there so many people dealing with this?! I switched over from AT&T internet back in Novemeber and the first few weeks with Cox were great until last Sunday when my upload speeds were only at 0.05 MB. I've been dealing with it since then. It will be fine for 1.5 days and then back down to terrible upload speeds. I can't game, send emails, stream, etc..

I want to know why this is happening to so many of us. It is 100% nothing on my end.  If this doesn't change, I will be going back to AT&T.

      I signed up for outage updates and they said it was fixed this morning. It was working fine until about 10 minutes ago to where I'm back to 0.25 upload speed. 

      I'd love some answers, this is extremely frustrating that I have to use my phones Hotspot to use the internet. 

      Please let us know what is going on.

        @JRuck504, I can confirm that you are no longer in an area wide outage. However, your modem is reporting some time out errors and noise on the upstream channels. Are there any splitters or signal amps on the cable line going to the modem? -Allan, Cox Support Forums Moderator.
