Cox Cable internet customers got some great news this week as Cox Communications announced that it will significantly increase the speeds of its internet on two of its service packages. Customers who have the Cox High Speed Internet Essential and Cox High Speed Internet Starter packages will see increased speeds immediately. Cox has been investing in their own network, noting that the demands in today’s market are more than they used to be.
“We know this is especially important in today’s world where more and more devices are connected in the home,” Cox Communications Omaha market vice president Kim Rowell said in a press release.
Customers who have the Cox High Speed Internet Essential package will see their 5Mbps speeds increased up to three times to 15Mbps. Those customers who have the Cox High Speed Internet Starter package will see their 1Mbps speeds increase up to five times to 5Mbps, and as mentioned they will see the affects of the change immediately, if not already.
Many customers now have smart phones with Wi-Fi access, tablets or gaming systems that also utilize the internet, so companies like Cox are getting ahead of it by keeping up with network demands. Even the minimal use internet is more stressful on bandwidth than it was five years ago, with how multimedia rich a lot of internet websites are now and the prevalence of things like streaming movie and television services.
For general web browsing, the difference may not be noticeable, but if users dealt with things like slow download times of large files and buffering from streaming high definition video, there should be a substantial change in both areas. Buffering of video should be less, if at all, and downloads of larger files should be noticeably faster going forward, meaning that customers will overall be able to do more online.
