    What a waste of time to be stuck on hold on a good Sunday! I'm sure you'll get plenty of company!

    Engage the operator in phone sex once you get them online. Doesn't matter if it's a chick or dude, it's Sunday

    They will have you power cycle, as if you've never heard of it. Send a signal to your modem, which will tell them nothing, and schedule a guy to come out in a few days. Thank you for your call.

    I used to have regular issues with them and their modems.
    Bought a new DOCSIS 3.0 and pretty much flawless(compared to what it used to be) for almost 2 years now.

    I got at the time Motorola SB6121 ($15 staples clearance) - Reg $70
    But if you need Lots of connected devices get the SB6141 - Reg $90

    Cablevision customer service is the best. Minimal wait time and they give you free equipment and will rewire your house for free if your service sucks.
