Lately, my connection (I have dsl) has been slow, and my outlook program hasn't been uploading my mail correctly for about 4 days.
I had an issue with Cable over the summer, so I switched to dsl. The cable would go out on my 3-4 times a day, just like if someone was in the house
turning the cable out of the splitter box that is just inside the house.
Then, it would come back in just as if someone was screwing the cable connection back into the splitter box. I chalked it up to my deceased parents
playing jokes on me, as I was the only one in the house EVERY TIME it happened. It would take the tv channels out at the same time, but they would
come back on line at different times. This is odd, due to the fact that they all ran through the same line into the house and split inside.
The cable company could find nothing wrong, so I switched to dsl due to the high prices I was charged for cable service for internet access.
With the dsl, we still lose connection here and there, but it hasn't been as bad as it was with the cable set-up.
Just thought I'd share my experience, since everyone else is on the Oct. 14th posts today.
