Internet connectivity seems to be getting worse
The Internet connection seems to be dropping off more frequently lately. The graph below shows the outage alerts I've received. Most of the problems in May were due to a failing cable modem which was replaced.
Below are the results for August through current
At first, I thought the problems were due to construction a block away, but that was early summer. Now it's autumn and the outages occur 1-2 times a week, it seems. We don't get any notifications why the outage occurred, so I don't know if this is abnormal or expected due to maintenance, upgrades, or external causes.
The outages are frequent enough to be memorable as a pattern, leading my wife to talk about changing Internet providers. As I work from home, I've had to pay more on my cellular service to have unlimited hotspot capabilities in case the Internet goes down while I'm working.
