Has anyone else in the Lincolnton/Hickory market been having problems with slow Internet speeds and complete breaks in Internet service lately? My wife and I were trying to watch a movie on Amazon Prime last Saturday night, and we almost gave up due to the constant interruptions. We probably would have, if we had not gotten to the last half-hour of the movie before the problem reached epic proportions. I did a double-check with my Speedtest app on my phone connected to the same wi-fi network and found the same slow (or nonexistent) service at those times, so that leads me to conclude that it was a Charter Spectrum problem and not an Amazon Prime problem.
I've noticed the same issues on several occasions lately, usually in the wee hours, but the incidents I described above took place in prime time.
My mother-in-law has had Time Warner service (and various problems with it) for years at her home in Greensboro, and ever since I learned of the merger with Charter, I've been wondering if the merger was going to bring TWC up or bring Charter down. I was always happy with Charter service before this, so I'm starting to think that it's going to bring Charter down.
