Cox network transformation to bring Multi-Gig Internet Service to Hampton Roads

East CoastMobileTelecomTop Stories

Cox Communications will make significant broadband network enhancements in the Hampton Roads region of the US.

As part of a multi-billion-dollar infrastructure investment to build a 10 Gigabit-capable, fiber-optic network, these enhancements will enable Cox to deliver multi-Gigabit speeds to its customers in the next few years, both downstream and upstream, to support a host of bandwidth-hungry applications.

Cox has invested US$55 million over the last five years in Hampton Roads and was the first to make Gigabit service available to all customers in the market. Cox now plans to invest an additional US$100-plus million over the next three years to deliver multi-Gigabit symmetrical speeds over high-speed broadband connections, starting in Norfolk.

“We’re preparing for the next generation of Internet uses at home and in business. The ever-growing number of connected devices combined with exciting new applications of technology such as virtual reality learning, autonomous vehicles or even exploring the meta-verse will require more network capacity and increased speeds and symmetry,” said J.D. Myers, Senior Vice President and Region Manager, Cox Communications.

“We are committed to being the internet provider customers can count on to have the speed they need now and in the future.”
