Weird internet connection

Ok we've been having intermittent internet connection in the past couple of weeks. Now what made me say that it's weird is that even if it I can't access the net on my PC or Mobile devices, I can still play videos on youtube via the x1 cable box. So what the heck is going on. Tech came a couple of days ago and attached a booster but it didn't help. He can't even give me a clear answer as to why it's happening. He said cause youtube is an app in the x1 box. And in my mind I'm like. Doesn't youtube requires internet to work? Isn't that weird? They noted that they will do something about it. Haven't asked for a credit yet cause I want a good credit til they fix this issue. Been with comcast for almost 4 years and this has been the worst month. Please help me. Thanks!
