Cox Begins to Offer 2 Gig Symmetrical Speeds
Pathway to multi-gig symmetrical speeds for all customers begins with 2G in many Cox neighborhoods

ATLANTA (April 21, 2022) – Cox Communications today announced the company will begin offering 2-Gigabit symmetrical speeds in neighborhoods across its footprint this month. This follows the company announcement that it is making a multibillion-dollar annual infrastructure investment over the next several years to build a 10-Gigabit capable, fiber-based network that will power the next generation of internet users.

Cox was the first to bring its customers widespread and ultra-fast high speed broadband Internet.  Expanding on fiber to the premise combined with breakthrough enhancements to cable’s broadband DOCSIS 4.0 technology will enable Cox to deliver more multi-Gigabit symmetrical speeds in the coming years to both residential and business customers to support a growing host of high bandwidth applications. 

While more than 99 percent of Cox’s residential customers have access to Gigabit download speeds today, this is Cox’s first multi-Gig symmetrical offer.

"As future technologies emerge that benefit the consumer experience, our customers can depend on us for the required increased bandwidth and network reliability to power their increasingly digital lives," said Len Barlik, EVP and chief technology officer at Cox. "Our customers have counted on our speeds and reliable service for more than 30 years and that same connectivity is ready to support the required increased bandwidth to power their digital futures.”

In the last 10 years, Cox has invested more than $19 billion in network and product upgrades to deliver some of the most powerful high-speed internet, TV, phone, and home security and automation services, as well as a growing suite of business offerings such as its cloud and edge services. Those strategic investments paid off significantly as Cox’s network continued to meet its customers’ needs despite the unprecedented surges in internet traffic seen during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to pay off for the growing demands in the coming years.

In addition to faster speeds, Cox also continues to provide secure and reliable wifi connections covering the whole home. Cox’s Panoramic Wifi offers the latest gateway technology to deliver the most advanced experience with reliable speed, coverage, control and security that can be easily updated as technology changes. Customers also have personal control and security through the Panoramic Wifi app with Advanced Security, protecting every device connected to their network.
