MikeB4: My internet connection started to dropout last night at around 10pm. Disappointing.

 

Me too - at about 10pm - found a new IP address in the morning.

 

Island Bay, FibreX 200, node WKH3.

If you power cycle the router and modem, does the speed return?

Okay with the office empty I have rebooted the TC440 and HG659. Speed is close to what it was yesterday that is 897mbps download and 94.6mbps  upload and 9ms ping. Shouldn't need to reboot every few days, this is silly.

 

I am not sure what would be the next step

It depends on the monthly fee he is paying. I know I am on an attractive deal that would make it silly to switch to fibre atm.

I am on a  discount, I am  from memory paying circa $95 per month for Fibre X  Gigabit. I will pay more to have a stable connection which is very important to us.

I agree, I am not concerned about the prospect of paying more for UFB if it gives me an acceptable service. I am always accepting that nothing is perfect but since the move from the previous version of Cable to DOCSIS 3.1 the service is far from perfect.
