Re: [VA] Frequent, Short Disruptions in Connectivity Just an update in case anyone with similar issues is following this thread.
Every 12-13 minutes, for a period of about 6 seconds, my latency spikes as high as 8 seconds. Pings will come back, if wait time is set long enough. (See example below.)
The field service contractor returned to my neighborhood 2 days after the first visit, and replicated the problem by connecting a modem direct to the node at the pedestal in our area.
They have finally agreed to escalate this as it is clearly a problem outside the house. (Something they promised to do 2 days ago.)
As it is the day before christmas, they said not to expect any activity until Wednesday.

Field supervisor duplicated problem at the tap, 3 days ago. Multiple calls to Cox, multiple promises that someone will call me back, still no progress.
Neighbor experiencing same runaround....
Wife calling Verizon....
Problem was fixed sometime yesterday. What a relief.
Thanks to those on this thread who offered help and suggestions.
To those with similar issues: stay at it, keep calling, and dont accept "this is normal" for an answer.
