Does the UPC internet connection get interrupted?

We have contracted Internet with UPC Cablecom and in general we are quite content, but every now and then it seems as if the connection goes down. This never lasts for more than a single second but that is enough to interrupt streamed radio and has made me lose content which I was editing in a web-mail program.

Does anyone else have the same experience?

No. CC usually go for much longer interruptions - several hours, but only about once every 5 years...

They have short lived DNS outages late at night... Less frequent now than a year or two ago.

No. Never had this kind of issue with UPC cablecom.

Edited to add that we use OpenDNS on the cablecom connection. If it's indeed a DNS problem I may not have noticed.
