Cox Launches Community WiFi in the Oklahoma City Metro Area
Customers can surf, stream and be social on-the-go
“As residents and visitors alike enjoy holiday events and shopping, Cox hotspots will help people stay connected to the devices and content that matter most,” said Kristin Peck, vice president of public affairs. “Whether it’s finding a restaurant, tracking down a gift or staying connected with friends and family—Cox’s internet service extends far beyond the home.”

(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK) – Cox Communications announced today the launch of more than 130 WiFi hotspots in Oklahoma City, Edmond, Midwest City, Norman and Yukon with additional hotspots coming in early 2017. These hotspots are strategically located in high-traffic areas like Automobile Alley, Bricktown, Campus Corner in Norman and various parks and gathering places throughout the surrounding metro area. The timing could not be better for Cox customers in Oklahoma as people are out shopping and traveling during the peak holiday season.

“As residents and visitors alike enjoy holiday events and shopping, Cox hotspots will help people stay connected to the devices and content that matter most,” said Kristin Peck, vice president of public affairs. “Whether it’s finding a restaurant, tracking down a gift or staying connected with friends and family—Cox’s internet service extends far beyond the home.”

There are now more than 20,000 Cox WiFi hotspots nationwide. In addition, Cox’s collaboration with other cable providers, called CableWiFi, offers Cox customers access to the nation’s largest WiFi network of more than 500,000 hotspots across the country. Cox WiFi and CableWiFi are free for Cox customers with Connect2Compete, Preferred, Premiere, Ultimate or G1GABLAST service.

“WiFi plays an important role in keeping people mobilized,” said Kristin Peck. “By adding these additional hotspots, Cox is able to deliver reliable high-speed internet service to our customers in their homes and on-the-go. Cox is committed to providing solutions not only for today but also for the future.”

Accessing Cox WiFi is simple. When customers near a Cox WiFi hotspot, they will see the Cox WiFi network location (SSID) in the list of available networks on their wireless device. Customers simply enter their Cox user ID and password to log in to Cox WiFi.  Once authenticated, they will be able to browse the internet as they would from home.
