Cox Faster Internet Speeds Coming for Cox Customers in Middle Georgia

Cox boosts the speeds of its top package by 33%, offering more choice and access to all customers


Macon, GA – Cox Communications announced today that customers who subscribe to Cox High Speed Internet Ultimate will benefit from even faster speeds beginning in August.  This latest surge in maximum download speeds from 150 Mbps to 200 Mbps is the most recent in a series of speed increases in Georgia. Earlier this year, the company made the download speeds for Cox High Speed Internet Starter package five times faster and Cox High Speed Internet Essential became three times faster. The company also announced plans to have residential gigabit speeds to all markets by the end of 2016.
“Cox continues to invest in our network and deliver what customers have come to expect from us: industry leading high-speed Internet service and a customer experience like no other,” said Lynn Murphey, Cox’s market leader for Middle Georgia.  “Not only are we working hard to continually increase speeds on our existing packages, but we are looking forward to bringing gigabit speeds to all markets served by Cox.”  
Delivering on its promise to provide the best high-speed Internet service, Cox has increased Internet speeds more than 1,000 percent on its most popular packages over the past 14 years, including doubling the speeds of its most popular packages late last year.  Along with a seamless streaming experience on multiple devices, with this latest speed increase, Cox High Speed Internet customers with the Ultimate service package and necessary equipment will be able to*:
  • Download a 5 GB high definition movie in three and half minutes
  • Download a 50 MB file in about two seconds
  • Download 10 MP3 songs in less than two seconds
  • Download a 25 MB YouTube clip in one second
“The benefits of an ultra-fast Cox High Speed Internet connection extend far beyond the home.  When our customers are on the go, they can enjoy free access to the nation’s largest WiFi network of more than 400,000 Cable WiFi hotspots across the country,” said Murphey. “These hotspots are located in public areas in such as restaurants, malls, sports arenas and parks across the U.S.” 
In addition to increased mobility, Internet usage is doubling every two years and consumers are adding more and more devices to their home network. Today, the average home has more than six devices connected to the Internet and that number is expected to leap to 11 devices by 2017. Cox is committed to continually enhancing its service offerings to stay at the forefront of these trends. The company has been the broadband leader in its markets more than the past two decades for speed, availability and customer choice. 
Choosing the best package as well as the right modem equipment will provide the fastest Internet and strongest wireless signals to all the devices they use. Customers interested in experiencing the new Internet speeds available should or a local Cox Solutions Store to test speeds for themselves.
