Two techs left about 30 minutes ago and my connection is still good. They went through a million changes though: changed connectors, ran new cable to main box (two houses down since one behind us has a bee hive), replaced outside splitter, replaced modem battery, replaced inside splitter, etc.
Through all of that I’m still nervous as all get out because they tried leaving 3 times and the connection dropped. I’m not at all convinced but time will tell. I still have to be here from 8 am to 8 pm on Friday (nice time slot Comcast!!) so they can bury the cable under ground. Until then we have a cable line running through our yard and two others. 🙁
