Cable and Internet Outages

What's Worse: Cable, Internet, or Phone Data Issues?

The nation's largest broadband provider experienced a notable Internet outage this past weekend, leaving some unlucky East Coast subscribers without Internet access for hours. The issue was resolved (most people just had to reset their modems after the company figured it out), but we all know how frustrating connectivity issues can be, especially when you're scouting out Cyber Monday deals .

Our mad-for-connection culture is completely reliant on working signals, which means outrages can wreak utter havoc on our lives. My neighborhood's cable is especially temperamental, which means I have to restart my DVR almost monthly (and often lose recordings or settings). Thankfully, I rarely have Internet issues save enormous storm days when the power is out completely. Which connection conundrum do you suffer from most?
