Cox Gigabit Internet Service Now Available in Oklahoma

  • Cox Communications
OKLAHOMA CITY — Cox Communications announced that its gigabit Internet service for residential customers has launched. Marketed under the brand name "G1GABLAST," Cox now offers speeds 100 times faster than the average speed in the U.S. today.

"This is an important development for Oklahoma, adding another quality of life factor that will help lure more businesses, families and young people to our state," Governor Mary Fallin said.

Residential Gigabit Service in New Developments

Cox is deploying residential gigabit Internet speeds to new developments across Oklahoma City and Tulsa and in Cox locations across the country. The company has already launched G1GABLAST service in 10 states and will have gigabit speeds in all of its markets by the end of 2016. Cox has offered gigabit speeds to businesses for more than 10 years.

"We are excited to deliver the choice of gigabit speeds to our customers," said Cox Communications President Pat Esser. "Coupled with our 1,800 employees in Oklahoma and more than 24,000 nationwide, our latest investments and the deployment of the fastest speeds available are powering economic growth and development for businesses and residents of the communities we serve."

The service offers speeds as fast as 1,000 megabits per second. It will deliver more speed, a powerful home network and rich broadband enabled services to customers. The service also includes the latest high-speed Wi-Fi router, one terabyte of cloud storage, Cox Security Suite and Family Protection and 10 email boxes each with 15 gigabytes of storage.

Raising Speeds of Existing Packages
While focused on bringing gigabit speeds to its residential customers, Cox continues to increase the speeds of all of its Internet service packages. Late last year, the company increased the speeds of Cox High Speed Internet Ultimate to 200 Mbps. Earlier in 2015, the company made its Starter package five times faster and the Essential package three times faster. Committed to offering its customers choice and access, Cox has increased broadband speeds more than 1,000 percent over the past 14 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.
