ATLANTA, Dec. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, 90 percent of Cox customers can get gigabit internet speeds, ensuring a house full of people and connected gadgets can all enjoy a great internet experience. The rapid deployment of gig speeds this year has made it possible for nine out of 10 homes in the Cox footprint to choose GIGABLAST, with 99 percent of customers able to get gig speeds by the end of next year.
A goal for many families is to be more present, especially during the holidays, but the reality is technology is part of our daily lives. And in many ways, it helps bring us closer. We can FaceTime with loved ones far away, share photos in an instant, play games with friends, tell our remote to play a holiday movie and ask Alexa to turn up some holiday tunes. Plus, our smart kitchens keep meals from getting ruined and help us manage holiday grocery lists. The more devices we add, the more we depend on our network experience to deliver.
"As households continue to add more gadgets to the home network, the quality of the user-experience can vary significantly based on quality of the home WiFi network," said Kevin Hart, executive vice president, chief product and technology officer at Cox. "Robust gig speeds paired with our Panoramic WiFi gateway will ensure everyone in your household gets the experience they expect from all their personal technology."
Cox has committed to offering gigabit speeds to all customers – not just a select few – and an array of speed and pricing options to all homes and businesses, not just chosen neighborhoods. Cox continues to offer a variety of Internet packages to meet individual customer needs.
