Is Cox internet slow in your area? Ours around Hollister and Walnut is slower on download than a dialup.

Yesterday afternoon and early evening COX was molasses slow in my neighborhood/Bel Air Knolls.

What is this dialup that you are speaking of?

Dialup. I remember that. I had it during the nineties. I was living in a rural area in a developing nation at the time.

I would call Cox first.

Then ask a neighbor who has Cox Internet too.

Probably is movies or zoom at work?

Else do some PC cleanup. Try uninstalling the AV. Or see what else running on system.

And Defrag disk after running ccleaner?

My son turned me onto an all called DownDetector. It shows which streaming platforms are having issues as well as cable co’s.
Yesterday I had a few hours of weirdness and on Saturday had no internet for nearly the entire day. The app showed me it wasn’t just my service. I had company. So sick & tired of Cox’s monopoly on SB.

Yes, Cox is always a problem. I recently upgraded my router, but didn't get any improvement, and finally they sent me a new modem (probably for being a pain in their rear) because they realize that our area (Noleta) is impacted and due for .... I can't remember what they call it, but a new "bud" or something that's like creating a new lane for more traffic. Things were better for a while, but the past day or several have been bad again. I think they're going to open this new lane this month or next. Let's cross our fingers!
