Review Of Cox Internet Service

With over six million subscribers, Cox is one of the largest cable Internet providers in the United States. In addition to cable TV, digital phone, and high speed Internet, Cox has also made home security services available to their customers.

If you have passed on Cox Internet service in the past, now is a good time to give them another look. In early 2015, they increased the download speeds on most of their high speed Internet plans. The lowest tier download speed is now up to 5 Mbps, while the fastest plans (available in limited areas) reach up to 150 Mbps.

Despite these increases in speed, Cox will not be stopping there. The company is aiming at increasing speeds in all of their markets to 1 Gbps by the end of 2017. So, if speed matters to you, then Cox has you covered - both now and in the future.

Cox High Speed Internet™ comes with home WiFi, thousands of nationwide WiFi hotspots, a secure cloud drive for file sharing, and the Cox Security Suite Plus.
