Spectrum Internet Sucks

Been fighting this battle literally for years.  Back when Spectrum was Time-Warner we had this same problem.  There seems to be a bad node / Router that one technician told me was working with two of its four channels broken.  it seems to not be a terrible problem unless lots of people (in my neighborhood?) are using the internet.  Problem is today, everyone is using the internet, all day.  I keep getting the run around, with a new modem, a booster in my garage, promises that it has been fixed.  Below is an MTR trace from today.  You don’t even have to be a techie to see something wrong and see where it is.  The Spectrum Man is coming again at 4pm.  Have a whole document to hand him this time.  Next stop, FCC …
