Internet dropping issues - will Xfinity install an active amplifier?
We have been having the dreaded “internet drop” problem again, which seems to return every several months after we go through a hair pulling exercise with technicians.
I did some research and it turns out that an active amplifier is supposed to help with the high upstream problems that I am seeing in our numbers. Picture is linked below.
Would an Xfinity tech install one of these outside of the house? In my neighborhood, the telephone poles are behind our houses in a common driveway and it appears that the splitters are about 20 feet up on the poles and there are a mess of wires. I would not even attempt to figure out that rats nest.
It seems kind of odd that in all of the forums here I have never come across this fix, but many people on YouTube have installed these to great success. Anyway, if anyone has any thoughts on these devices and whether I can install them myself, please let me know.
