Cox doubles Internet speeds for OKC customers


Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — Cox Communications has announced that it will make its Preferred, Premier and Ultimate High Speed Internet packages two times faster. The new speeds — as fast as 100Mbps — automatically go into effect Oct. 24 and customers will not need to do anything to receive the new speeds.

The speeds of Preferred High Speed Internet, Cox’s most popular Internet tier, will more than double from 12Mbps to 25Mbps. Cox’s Premier and Ultimate tiers also will see double the speeds, increasing from 25Mbps to 50Mbps and 50Mbps to 100Mbps, respectively. Additionally, Cox’s Essential High Speed Internet service will increase from 3Mpbs to 5Mbps.

“Our customers tell us that speed matters,” said Percy Kirk, SVP and general manager of Cox Central Region. “We know this is especially important in today’s connected world where more and more devices are connected through home WiFi networks. We are continuing to invest in our network to bring our customers the best online experience possible.”

These speed increases also mean that the speeds for Connect2Compete, Cox’s broadband adoption program that provides low-cost Internet to low-income families in Oklahoma, will increase from 3Mbps to 5Mbps at no additional charge.
