As I look around my house, I can count two PC computers, two lap tops, two ipads, three cell phones, two learning tablets, three gaming platforms, an Amazon Echo (which I love) and two televisions. I think it’s safe to say that we are a serious digital family who thrives on internet. Both my husband and myself work from home, meaning our house is our office so when our Wi-Fi crashes or our internet speed becomes molasses, you can imagine how stressful that can be.
And as a mom of three kids, let me take this just a little bit further because I am sure many of you can relate. There have been days where I’ve needed a break, and the “babysitter” (AKA iPad) isn’t working because the internet is down. It’s too early for wine so what am I to do?? Of COURSE I read a book and we play a game, but do you know how necessary reliable internet speed is? That is why I am choosing COX Gigablast. This high-speed internet offers speed up to 100 times faster than the average residential speed and offers speeds as fast as 1,000 megabits per second.
Cox Smart Home At Rancho Mission Viejo
At a recent event, I visited a Cox smart home in Ranch Mission Viejo in the village of Esencia to see just how advanced the homes of the future will be. I was blown away at all of the technology available to not only families, but to doctors, businesses, education and more! The event was covered by abc Eyewitness news and I listened in on some great interviews from Ryland Madison, Director of product Marketing at Cox.
