About Cox’s Network:
Cox’s network is powered by fiber and we continue expanding that fiber all the way to customer’s homes in more neighborhoods.
Cox also increased speeds for the majority of its customers earlier this year, doubling its most popular tier from 250 Mbps to 500 Mbps (half a gig) at no additional cost. With this update, more than 75 percent of Cox customers have speeds up to half a gig or more.
Cox Business already offers businesses multi-gig symmetrical speeds in all service areas and fiber-powered connections as fast as 100 gig, along with advanced cloud and managed IT services that support unique connected environments and hospitality experiences.
Commitment to affordability continues to be a priority through digital equity programs like Connect2Compete, the Affordable Connectivity Program, ConnectAssist and more.
Cox recently launched its latest all-in-one modem/WiFi router to customers. The average home has more than 25 connected devices. Cox’s network can seamlessly power them all, delivering more than enough network capacity to support today’s applications and tomorrow’s new device technology.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Cox is continuing to build upon its proven track record of delivering technology investments. In the past decade, the company has invested more than $11 billion in network upgrades to deliver some of the most powerful internet, TV, phone, smart home and mobile services and will continue making multibillion-dollar annual infrastructure investments over the next several years.
