Only receiving 28Mbps and paying for gigablast. other neighbors report the same thing.
Can anyone explain why I only get a fraction of what I pay for? my last speed test was 16Mbps, and at best I get 28mbps. I pay for 1000Mbps, and I fully understand that one device will never actually get those speeds (several people are using the internet), but I am not even getting a twentieth of what I am paying for. I called the support line, and the guy wanted to restart my router and modem (of course), and then tried to have me get a tech to come look at it (for about 100$ of course). I vehemently declined that offer, I know my equipment is good, I paid for excellent brands, and both the modem and the router support +1000Mbps speeds. I told customer service they needed to have someone come check the main line in my neighborhood as my neighbor (and several others) all shared the same experience with me, we are getting hardly any internet. They supposedly created a ticket for a tech to come to inspect the box outside and gave me the ticket number, but I have not received any news on that front yet.
@COX - please resolve our situation.
We expect you to have the best possible customer service experience, so I apologize that your interactions have made you feel mistreated. As far as speeds go, our network provisioning and engineering practices are designed to enable customers to receive the speeds they are subscribed to. However, it is important to note that many factors beyond Cox’s control can affect the actual speeds customers receive to their devices.
