I upgraded to gigabit online Saturday night, modem rebooted as expected. When it came back up, no connection. The modem goes through the process, power, ds, us, solid. Internet blinks slowly, then quickly and reboots. Looking at the modem status page it says under connectivity, access denied. It locks a ds and an us channel, but will not provision or go online. Phone tech says the cables aren’t “strong” enough for gigabit. I know it is not an issue with my modem or cabling. Working fine up until I put the order for gig in, and the modem rebooted as expected. They are telling me no tech until July 10, that is unacceptable. Can anyone fix this or what? I choose to upgrade and I’m left with no connection for at least 4 days?
Turns out they do not offer gig speed in my area and website was mistaken. Since my old speed was grandfathered, I am now at a lower speed than I started with. Went from 150/20 to 100/10. In response to my fcc complaint, they informed me they have no plans to upgrade the infrastructure needed to ever offer gig speed here. Thanks Comcast, for absolutely nothing. Swindling customers into lower speed tiers is not ok.
