Re: [OK] Another day, another Cox outage

Maybe some critter chewed up the cable. When they buried the line, did they just plop the cable in the ground or encase it in PVC pipe or anything? Perhaps the recent changes in weather conditions wore something out with the heat/cold cycles.

One weird thing happened at my folks house in Edmond.. they were having all kinds of weird phone problems.. turns out it was being caused by a faulty doorbell ringer power module sending out RF interference. Have no idea if something like this would affect cable systems with the shielded cables.

Yes, it was in a PVC conduit. When they were here they did check for voltages and such on the line and everything was perfect.

It's also odd that this went from none to a huge problem in 24 hours. To me, that points to component failure somewhere.

I am testing a theory right now.

Bad things happen suddenly and convincingly. It makes no diff if the cable is one day old or 600 years old. Have a drop put in and keep it for a week to test it. If it not the cable, the next place for them to look is in the pedestal. It is not rocket science. It is a company that does not want to spend money or your problem even though they are causing it. It is all about the bottom line, the Bored (a pun) and the stockholders. It is about not giving you one I bit of help, or one bit of bandwidth that might solve the problem.
