cox isp mafia........offers symmetrical 2-gig speeds starting at $110 a month

Cox Communications jumped aboard the multi-gig train, announcing the launch of a symmetrical 2-gig product for select fiber customers. Though 99% of its residential customers already have access to gigabit service, the offer is Cox’s first move into symmetrical multi-gig territory.

An operator representative told Fierce the service is available in parts of “a majority of our markets,” specifically areas with newly built fiber. However, “this footprint is growing and will continue to expand to our other neighborhoods,” the representative said. Pricing for the product starts at $110 per month.

Earlier this year, Cox unveiled a plan to spend billions annually over the coming years to roll out 10-gig capable fiber and DOCSIS 4.0 upgrades to enable multi-gigabit symmetrical speeds. That plan includes $20 million for fiber deployments in four Rhode Island markets.

Asked whether the decision to launch a multi-gig service came in response to competitive pressure, the Cox representative said “this 2G symmetrical rollout was always in our plan and is just the beginning.”


Cox joins a parade of operators trotting out multi-gig internet tiers. In the U.S., AT&T, Frontier Communications, TDS Telecom, Verizon and Windstream have all done so in recent months, with Altice USA and Lumen Technologies plotting similar moves. A similar trend can be seen among operators in Canada.

The degree to which multi-gig offers are a currently marketing ploy rather than a consumer need is unclear. Cox declined to comment on how many of its users currently take its 1-gig offering. However, last month, it upped speeds on its lower-level 150 Mbps plan to 250 Mbps, noting at the time the offering was its “most popular tier.”

According to OpenVault’s most recent Broadband Insights report, around 12% of internet subscribers were on a speed tier of 1 Gbps or higher in Q4 2021. The largest cohort of consumers (36.9%) took speeds of 100-200 Mbps while another 28.5% subscribed to speeds of 200-400 Mbps

Honestly, anything over 10-20 mbit is sufficient for most households.

Pay 80 for Fiber with AT&T but I work from home, game and got a full house of my kids and nieces & nephews here all the time. So lots of games, tablets, TVs running all the time. Also it includes HBO Max. Figure decent deal.

Cox is a scam. One of the only ISP's in RI and they take advantage of that by raping people's wallets and purses.

I had gigabit for years, thinking it was the sh*t; 79 smart devices on at all times, gaming, kids online for school, wife online…I recently moved and gigabit wasn’t available so we are on 300Mbps and there is no difference. I can honestly conclude, you DO NOT need all that speed

To a certain extent, bandwidth and latency is more important.

I'm ready to go back to ATT Fiber - newly built neighborhood and the fiber line was fu*ked up to my house / section and couldn't wait a month+ for them to fix it (I work from home) - so had switch to Spectrum $110 for 1 gig download but 50 mb upload - I'm ready to switch back though

Spectrum is the worst man. My parents and sister have them and it’s always issues with the internet and speeds usually suck pretty bad. I have had AT&T since 2017 and been pretty happy with my service no complaints.

That’s a steal, I got 1.2GB from Xfinity for $105 after the military discount, uploads are abysmal.
