ATLANTA, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent PCMag.com Readers' speed test rates Cox High Speed Internet the Fastest Cable Internet Service Provider in the country. The report also rates Cox the Fastest Internet Service Provider in the South region, which includes Cox service areas in Arizona, Arkansas, Virginia, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Florida and Georgia. The results are based on independent speed tests from more than 6,000 people nationwide conducted over a year-long period.
"Our customers tell us that speed continues to be a primary reason for choosing and keeping a provider's Internet service, so we strive to increase our speeds on a regular basis," stated Mike Pacifico, Cox's executive director of data product marketing. "This study validates that Cox offers some of the fastest speeds in the marketplace, allowing our customers to do even more with their broadband connections."
In addition to base download speeds up to 50Mbps, Cox offers customers on Preferred and higher packages PowerBoost®, a free temporary burst of speed when extra network capacity is available. As more homes connect multiple devices to a single Internet connection – including desktop and laptop computers, smartphones and gaming consoles – customers require more bandwidth to have the best broadband experience.
"Cox's speeds allow our customers to support multiple Internet-connected devices, without lag, jitter or delay," said Pacifico. "Our broadband speeds, combined with the most popular security and entertainment features, make Cox the best value for high-speed Internet. That's why more than four-million customers nationwide have selected Cox High Speed Internet for their broadband service."
