I believe that is your download speed - for watching netflix & surfing it is fine. Actually, it is overkill - you could probably do fine with 5 Mbps for netflix & surfing.

For cameras & ring doorbell, the download speed (50 Mbps) is largely irrelevant. It is your upload speed that matters - you are uploading data (video) rather than downloading.

T-Mobile is now offering broadband internet for $60/month with no data limits. It is a competitor to COX. The catch is that you must also subscribe to a voice plan with T-Mobile. Unfortunately, my pre-paid minutes plan doesn't count.

I noticed COX is now offering $4 off my normal monthly price of $66 and change if I sign a two year contract with a $243 early exit penalty. I'm not sure if this is in response to T-Mobile, but it's a pretty weak response if so.

For now I'll stick to COX since I rarely use a cell phone. But it is getting tempting to finally take the plunge and get a smart phone. My OOMA IP phone costs only $5/month so you just can't beat that on price.

I was curious about this... I use Cox fiber and pay for the extra 500 gigs, the Internet alone without the cable considered is $170/month. CenturyLink has fiber now for $65 and it’s unlimited so I’m thinking of switching but I want to make sure it’s as reliable as Cox fiber, which never has any issues.

On various Vegas forums and what not I have seen a lot of negativity toward CenturyLink. FWIW. I like the idea of saving over $100/month but a lot of negativity toward them for some reason.

I have been using the T-Mobile internet for about 8 months in Las Vegas, similar use - although mine is $50/mo fixed. I replaced the Cox internet that kept having the same issue as yours. I replaced my Ooma with Obi and google voice - no cost per month so can beat it.

What speed is the T-mobile?

Switched to century link when fiber became available, have had it for two months now. Would have never switched before it was fiber. $65 a month unlimited gigabit. I'm not getting that speed but I am consistently getting 350-400 Mbps range which is excellent for the price. No problems yet. Live in 89129 near Lone Mountain.

In your case, besides getting a docis 3 modem (if yours isn’t) I think you might be having problems due to your low 50 mbps speed. I certainly could be wrong but it might be worth a try. Just my opinion.
im no longer in Vegas but in Florida. My internet speed here is 30-40mps. Terrible but im in the country. Im running 4 Wyze Cameras and a Nest Camera with the Arris combo modem with no reset issues.... Its not the speed.
