Getting the right service tech helps a lot. Sometime last year we were
having problems with our Comcast Internet. The third tech who came out
went up on the pole and looked at some gadget up there. He found much
corrosion. He had to get an okay from his boss to swap it out, because
it meant cutting the service to everyone downstream. He got the okay and
we've had no problems since. That corroded connector had probably been
in there since it was installed in the mid '90s.
