July 12, 2019




Macon, GA – This summer, most Cox Internet customers are now enjoying faster download speeds at no additional cost. The speeds are now up to 50 percent faster and are automatic for Cox customers with the popular Preferred and Premier tiers of service. All a customer needs to do is restart their modem to experience the increased speeds.  

“We have increased internet speeds every year for the last 14 years as part of our commitment to providing the best experience inside and outside the home,” said Bonnie Lopez-Crowe, Cox’s Middle Georgia market vice president. “With speed increases, our customers can do everything faster and make their homes even smarter.  It’s how we help people make the most of their day and stay connected to the things they care about most.”

Cox customers with Premier service now have download speeds up to 200 mbps (increased from 150 mbps), and customers with Preferred, the most popular tier of service, now have download speeds up 150 mbps (increased from 100 mbps).

To maximize the in-home experience, Cox’s Panoramic Wifi uses advanced technology designed for speed and performance to reach every device in every room of the home. This year, Cox also expanded its Panoramic Wifi offering to include the smartest Wifi experience, with reliable speed, coverage and control. Outside the home, Cox High Speed Internet customers can access more than 650,000 wifi hotspots in cities across the nation at no additional cost.

Cox is investing $10B over the next five years to continue leading the broadband market and enable future growth. The company currently offers gigabit speeds to more than 95 percent of customers within its footprint, and all households will have Gigablast available by end of the year.
