Considering Downgrading from Gig to Ultra due to Frequenty Instability
I've had Gig for months and I've been having frequent problems with instability - whether it's packet loss while gaming or constant intermittent outage during Zoom calls, it's made my remote life hell.
I've gone through 5 routers (3 spectrum provided, 2 high end routers - an Archer A20 and a Asus RT-AX86U) and have had the same problems with all of them, leading me to conclude the following:
- It's the service, not the equipment/router.
- The gig plan exceeds the limits of what Spectrum's technology OR my building/area wiring can do.
My next step is to ask them to downgrade me to Ultra instead of Gig, in the hopes that will be more stable.
Any opinions or other things to try before I do this?
