Cox Communications Extends Gigabit Speeds to Virginia

  • Cox Communications
CHESAPEAKE, VA — Cox Communications announced that its gigabit Internet service for residential customers is coming to Virginia. The company will offer speeds 100 times faster than the average speed in the U.S. today. The company made the announcement outside one of the new home sites at the Viridian Reserve at Hickory in Chesapeake where the service will first be available in Virginia.

"We are excited about our road map to offer gigabit speeds to all of our residential customers," said Cox Communications President Pat Esser. "We are deploying new technology and infrastructure that will offer our customers the choice of gigabit speeds in all markets we serve."

Gigabit Speeds Available in all Cox Markets by 2016
Cox will expand the availability of residential gigabit Internet speeds to new developments across Virginia and in Cox locations across the country. The company said the service launched this month in parts of the Phoenix Metropolitan area. It will have gigabit speeds in all of its markets by the end of 2016. Cox has been deploying gigabit speeds to businesses for more than 10 years. With speeds as fast as 1,000 Mbps, gigabit speeds from Cox also will deliver a more powerful home network and rich broadband enabled services to customers.

The announcement follows the increased speeds for subscribers of the two most popular tiers of Internet service for the company. Earlier this year, Cox High Speed Internet Preferred was increased from 25 Mbps to 50 Mbps. Cox High Speed Internet Premier increased from 50 Mbps to 100 Mbps. These tiers represent more than 70 percent of Cox's high-speed Internet customers. Committed to offering access and choice, Cox has increased broadband speeds more than 1,000 percent over the past 13 years.

In the last 10 years, Cox has invested more than $15 billion in its communities through infrastructure upgrades to deliver video, phone and high-speed Internet and home security and automation service to homes and businesses in the company's service area. Additionally, the company gives tens of millions of dollars annually in cash and in-kind contributions to support the communities in which it operates.
