Re: Phone keeps cutting out

Re: Phone keeps cutting out

I've had this problem for well over a year. The Trouble Shooter they have/had working on our phones (this effects approximately a 2 mile radius in my neighborhood, with everyone having the same problem) said it's a problem with reverberation and interference in the lines. However, it's not our internal wiring, modems or anything else on the customer's side...the problem is in the street and they cannot figure out where the interference is coming from. Comcast is WELL AWARE of the horrible service, they just haven't done a thing to correct it or figure out where the problem actually lies. I have called once a week to complain, and nothing but another bill is what Comcast's answer is....we should collectively force them to compensate the loss of home phone service. It's been over a year Comcast.....c'mon, do something!

Please see my post Comcast. Nothing has changed. NOTHING.

Re: Phone keeps cutting out

This is more likely the problem:

 

The network simply gets overloaded periodically (like if a neighbor is downloading a big movie or something) and it can't keep up the speed necessary for voip service. Probably means Comcast just needs to upgrade its equipment in my neighborhood but doesn't want to make the investment... what else is new!

 

I have tried going to pingtest.net to diagnose the problem. When the problem is not occurring PingTest returns a grade of A with 0% packet loss, ping of around 12ms and jitter of 1-2ms. BUT, if I run pingtest when the problem is happening I get a score of F with packet loss above 50%, ping times around 150ms and jitter of around 190ms

Re: Phone keeps cutting out

I feel for you. My same problem has been going on after they sent me an upgraded modem that I didn't know they were sending. And that was sometime after the first of the year.  It's amazing how they can raise our rates but don't improve our service😡😡 or fix our problems.
