were you pegging 8 always? The most issues we had were FTTP (fiber to the
Premise 'home'). FTTN (node) was slightly better as far as stability.
You'll espically love it when your 2wire RG dies
Here's a tip, If you call and complain every day and ask for a credit,
they are required to give you $5 a day. No matter what. Just say that you
want to be compensated $5. They used to give up to $90 but that stopped
after people (usually houstonites crying about being displaced from the
hurricane 2 years later) started to abuse it.
You can get free service :)
