re: AT&T vs Verizon - BigD45
It all depends on where you're at in Central MS. My family lives in a rural area about 50 miles south of Jackson. Verizon works well at my aunt's house, but at&t rules the roost at my uncle's house about 10 miles up the road. Pull up the coverage maps, look at the areas you will be frequentin...

re: Personal Modem and router on Cox not working - BigD45
Was your internet working before? The first guy they sent was lazy. Proper procedure is to run DOCSIS checks at your wall outlet, any splitter or connection from there to the home run, at the ground block and at the tap (at the pole). That is all the technician can check, but he should fix any ...

re: Will a 2-way coaxial splitter diminish internet speed with only 1 exiting cable? - BigD45
You need to install a ground block. Look up cable ground block on Google. After that, you need to run some 12 gauge solid copper wire to your ground rod or to the ground. It can't be longer than 20 feet. The reason why this is done is to eliminate the differences in potential of the cable pl...

re: Best internet in Katy? - BigD45
See if Entouch services your area. Comcast has been kind of buggy over the last few weeks, so I feel your pain. As far as SlingTV, I bought a Realtek adapter that sends the internet signal through the power outlets in my house. ...

re: UVerse TV vs DirecTV - BigD45
I've had both here in Houston, and I'm currently with DirecTV. The picture quality with any satellite system, whether it's DISH or DirecTV, is going to be better than any cable or fiber optic signal. The satellites don't compress the signal, but cable and fiber are both compressed which results in...
