Moderate to severe packet loss

Below is one of my 2nd complaints to BBB and 1 internally. Paul *****
has also been trying to resolve the issue while Samuel was out of office. Samuel *****
of Atlanta office called me 12Jan16 to tell me they don't trouble shoot packet loss and closed my issue.  I've included a tracert and pinged the 2nd and 3rd hop both identified as AT&T.

VOIP is inaudible when the loss of packets are so many.

This has also been tested with out a router inbetween.

This has been going on for over a year now.

I know 2 other users in the area with the same issue, but are not Network managers like me and can't get an AT&T tech to fix the issue. AT&T sends technicians out to check the line for signal loss, noise, latency, and other things they can't explain! From my house to first junction has been resoldered and checked that I have 110% download speed, yet what good is that if some of it's missing or has to be resent/re-received multiple times.

 

This is the type of service Directv will become, I will be removing it also

 

As I can see I am not the only one with this problem:

                                Evening,

                                Yeah I saw the option and added 2 files, but I don't think it worked or I needed to add a lot more and didn't see the option to add multiple files.

                                These are print screens with dates and times for the most part.

                                They show 2 IP addresses to AT&T before going to other hosts. It shows the first 2 hops after leaving my house. This way the error/problem is internal and can't be blamed on anyone else.

                                I also had a case about a year ago if that could be combined would be more data.

                                Almost 4mb of print screens. Hope it's not too much. If so, I can send in smaller groups.

                                Evening,

                                Service has been restored although unknown as to why the service was out, I received no information. This print screen to point out that any question about my router being of any possible problem with the packets being lost in transmission can be dismissed. This is a straight connection to from modem to my computer with no router in between.

                                There is still packet loss. Although this is a short test I need to restore service to the router so my girls can use the internet also.

                                Morning,

                                I was able to direct connect last night after resetting the modem. Had 5% packet loss at 7:45, connection dropped at 8:25pm (approx), shut down at 9:30pm.

                                I am unable to connect at all this morning!

                                Thank you for not keeping me up to date, this is the service I've been dealimg with and this is just more icing on the cake.

                                So went from packet loss bad sevice to none!

                                I await to hear why the ball was dropped or why it's not working and who I'm to call at 7pm 7 Jan or 5:30am 8 Jan because customer service won't have a clue!

Since AT&T has blamed my 3rd party Linksys router, they can't ping the AT&T modem, and the AT&T modem was bridged, for my problems.

Here is the activation of the AT&T 7550 modem/router.
