Internet slows down, cuts in and out, or doesn't work at all on occasion.

Internet slows down, cuts in and out, or doesn't work at all on occasion.

So my internet connection has been very hit or miss. Sometimes it works fine other times it slows down, or it will cut in and out while I"m trying to work from home. I had a Comcast tech come out and he replaced an old splitter I had, but that didn't fix the issue. Other than that he said everything seemed fine. The splitter splits the cable into two different rooms. He said one of the wires is very old ( so I stopped using that one) and the other wire is fine ( the one I started using since he came). The problem has persisted however. Do you think having the splitter still connected to an older wire be causing the problem? even if it's not being used?

Hi @MattD616

Yes, removing the splitter and the old line altogether would be best practice.
