PHOENIX and TUCSON, Ariz., April 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cox Communications announced today that it has increased the speeds on two packages of Internet service for all Arizona customers. Cox High Speed Internet Essential will triple its speed from five megabits per second to 15 megabits per second. Cox High Speed Internet Starter will be five times faster, increasing from one megabit per second to five megabits per second. The new speeds automatically went into effect on March 23, 2015 (no customer action was needed to obtain the speed increase).
With speeds as fast as 1 Gig in the Valley, Cox is continuing to provide its customers the fastest speeds available.
"This is yet another of the many speed increases that Cox has implemented for our Internet customers in Arizona," stated John Wolfe, Regional General Manager, Cox Southwest region. "It is the result of our investment in our network and commitment to offer access and choice to meet the needs of all our customers. We know this is especially important in today's world where more and more devices are connected in the home."
In fact, the increased speeds come on the heels of a double speed increase on the two most popular packages late last year.
"We will continue to invest in our network to bring our customers the best online experience possible, enhancing the value of the bundle of video, Internet, phone and home security services," said Wolfe.
Cox also offers the most compelling combinations of speeds and features, with all customers receiving free cloud storage; 24/7 live, online sports coverage from ESPN; and McAfee Family Protection and Cox Security Suite Plus, a comprehensive package of Internet security tools to help ensure online safety with anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-phishing, parental controls and more. Cox customers with the Preferred or higher package also have access to more than 300,000 WiFi hotspots when they travel so they can stay connected on-the-go.
