ginger1 1 Oct 21, 2020 01:00 PM Cox Internet Outages? Cox is an easy target around here and, I hear, in many communities. But outages happen. It's not a perfect system, especially when a drunk rams his/her car into a utility pole holding up a Cox cable. Or for a few minutes now and then as they perform system upgrades/maintenance. If it drags on for more than a few minutes, check their website for info on when to expect it back on, using your cellphone's LTE or "hot spot" while patiently waiting. The REAL problem with Cox is that is a de facto monopoly that plays games with their service fees. (Unless you live very nearby a Frontier DSL central office link. And they are not without their issues.) But no real competition for high-speed internet. Not yet. But 5G and StarLink satellite is coming! Competition, but probably not so much a bargain. We'll see.
