Comcast Outages

Has anyone out there been having a problems with Comcast outages? In roughly the last month I have three outages that lasted three hours or more. Does have anything to with the Pandemic, (staff shortages, heavy use of system.)

We have Spectrum in our area, and we had no problems at all.

My X1 box acted up a couple weekends ago, but a simple unplug and reboot fixed the issue. Wasn't an issue with the signal coming into the house.

My guess is a failing bandwidth equalizer that services sfpcc's neighborhood is the culprit. Had that issue at my old house about 6 or 7 years ago.

NBC Universal is the most politically biased company in the world. Everyone should cut the cord. Then Concast would suffer, like they support people who make people suffer and undermine their lives and make them suffer. And let them die because they didn't try Hydroxychloroquine until it was way too late to help.

Why not? Are you still paying for service? Why would you let it go 6 months if you're not getting anything?

Batteries need replacing?

They’ll replace the remote clicker (or the box) for free if it’s actually bad.

There have been three outages (two brief, the other for about two hours) in my neighborhood over the past two weeks for equipment maintenance.

The most recent one occurred yesterday around 4PM and lasted for maybe 10 minutes.
