We experienced an outage from roughly 12:21pm to 12:50pm.

Probably the wind.

La Cumbre/San Roque area - no outage, but off and on periods of really, really significant lag for opening and navigating webpages.

We always do....nothing new for us...

This comment would not be possible if I were experiencing an internet outage.

This post reminds me of my tech support days when people would email me to tell me they can't send email.

OP here, everything was back up about 30 min after I sent the question in - Thanks! (I know .... Overall, Cox is awful)

Nope..

No outage but it's been pretty sluggish off-and-on the past few days. Near Via Diego/La Colina.

Just talked to a couple people in SB that have said it is incredibly slow today and multiple signal losses today. Have a feeling it is wind related.

 

 COMMENT 508021 agree helpful negative off topic

Agreed @004. The lunacy and irony of this entire post/question is so thick, it's mind boggling.... And really funny.

Last night around 9:30-10pm, yes. One for one minute, off for ten... Cox is horrible, but I have grown to expect nothing better.

True story...when Cox was new I phoned to see if the outage was on our side, or theirs. The nice lady told me I could go to their web site and see if they were "down" or not, and hung up. :-b

I got a phone call from Cox this afternoon,

"Please contact your Cox representative regarding important information about your account."

Oh yeah, I'm past due. Thanks for the reminder.

 

 COMMENT 508045P agree helpful negative off topic

2014-04-02 03:45 PM

Oh, of course. That's why it's been incredibly slow all day! Not just my ancient modem. I'm not being sarcastic, using it today has been drudgery. But I'll still cancel my tv before my internet. Not outage here around Cottage. Thanks 004 & 021. I just figure the OP posted from a smart phone.

Earthlink----the best and they don't jack their prices every year!

 

 COMMENT 508053 agree helpful negative off topic

There was a Cox internet outage for about 45 min in the Milpas/Mason neighborhood...I guess it didn't occur to some of you (004 & 021) that posts/comments can be submitted via cell phone, not connected to the internet ... So, this post really isn't very ironic or that funny.

 

 COMMENT 508059 agree helpful negative off topic

2014-04-02 04:05 PM

my favorite Cox response when I called to ask about an outage in my area? "We haven't had any reported ..."

Oh. Okay. Thanks.

SOP for Cox on a daily basis here. I'd be concerned if it lasted more than 6 hours though.

 

 COMMENT 508110 agree helpful negative off topic

Slow as molasses in Hope Ave/La Cumbre area. Infuriating!

 

 COMMENT 508111 agree helpful negative off topic

When it is working, is there a faster alternative in the area for residential customers?

046 mentioned EarthLink. Do they cover Santa Barbara? I dislike how Cox does business. As there's little competition I pay $47.00 per month for their slowest service. If you sign up for their "bundle" they cut all of your interior Verizon phone lines. So when you get up with their staticky phone lines and want to go back to Verizon, you'll find that you have to spend $250.00 + to have new interior phone lines run.
I switched to DISH for my TV some years ago and LOVE it. I have only a cell phone, but I haven't been able to rid myself of COX internet yet. Are there good alternatives?

sluggish and slow and no it's not my computer. Earthlink dsl is covered by Verizon, don't recommend it, it was much slower and they have limited areas, mostly only downtown because it's not run over to the west side everywhere. We went that route and it was a pain, went back to cox and bickered for the best price

The COX monopoly must be done away with and other better and more reasonably priced providers made available to the public and users in this area.

If you ask me, it seems like the cox internet is constantly going in and out.

Cox: spotty and slow. Why aren't we a city-wide wi-fi area -- it's got to be cheaper and more reliable

 

 COMMENT 508225 agree helpful negative off topic

We have Verizon and live on the Riviera. Does anyone have problems with inconsistent internet access, especially when 2 people are using different computers in the home, at the same time??? Would love to hear if anyone has another provider to recommend. Thanks. Going crazy with Verizon!

Rex, is that upper West side or upper or outer State?
