Unstable 1gb connection

I have the 1gb service in Escondido California it’s very inconsistent constantly dropping in upload speed and download reset does nothing I tried a router on different WiFi 2.4 and 5ghz I’m less then 20 feet from signal with full strength. I can never get anywhere near the 50mpbs upload I have a real time monitor of the upload speed and it jumps all around with 5-20mbps differences. Very inconsistent and constantly drops out and disconnects me. I’ve tried resetting unplugging and nothing same thing no difference. I have the pw8. This is new service and it’s been like this since day one. I checked all the cables from the telephone pole everything looks good when I check speed it says download is 118 percent of the speed.
