Cox Communications has announced customers who subscribe to Cox High Speed Internet Ultimate will benefit from even faster speeds beginning in September.
This latest surge in maximum download speeds from 150 Mbps to 300 Mbps is the most recent in a series of speed increases in Arizona.
Earlier this year, the company made the download speeds for Cox High Speed Internet Starter package five times faster; Cox High Speed Internet Essential became three times faster, according to a press release.
This latest speed increase comes on the heels of the company beginning its rollout of gigabit speeds to residential customers in the Valley last fall. Cox’s residential gigabit service delivering speeds 100 times faster than the average speed in the U.S. today will be available in all Cox markets by the end of 2016, stated the release. Cox has been offering multi-gigabit services to businesses across the Valley for more than 10 years.
“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,” stated John Wolfe senior vice president and region manager, in the release. “Not only are we working hard to offer gigabit speeds to all valley residents, but we continue to increase speeds and add valuable features.”
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 speeds late last year, stated the release.
Along with a seamless streaming experience on multiple devices, with this latest speed increase, Cox High Speed Internet customers with the Ultimate service package will be able to:
- Download a 5 GB high definition movie in two and half minutes
- Download a 50 MB file in about one second
- Download 10 MP3 songs in less than a second
- Download a 25 MB YouTube clip in less than a 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 more than 1,200 Cox WiFi hotspots in Arizona, plus the nation’s largest WiFi network of over 400,000 Cable WiFi hotspots across the country,” stated Mr. Wolfe in the release. “These hotspots are located in public areas in Phoenix and Tucson, and nationwide, such as restaurants, malls, sports arenas and parks.”
In addition to increased mobility, Internet usage is doubling every two years and consumers are adding more and more devices to their home network, according to the release. 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, stated the release.
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 over the past two decades for speed, availability and customer choice, according to the release.
