The service will be first available in parts of the Phoenix Metropolitan area, and will continue to expand there as well as in Las Vegas and Omaha, and in new developments in all Cox markets nationwide. In all Cox locations, the company will begin market-wide deployment of gigabit speeds to residential customers by the end of 2016. The company has been deploying 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 2,300 employees in the Valley and more than 20,000 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.”

G1GABLAST from Cox – offering speeds as fast as 1,000 megabits per second – 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.

G1GABLAST will be available in the Phoenix market for $69.99 per month when combined with Cox’s most popular service bundles. Marketing and sales promotions will include broad digital advertising and social media, direct mail and print and outdoor advertising. Cox will be demonstrating the service at community events throughout the region and at its retail Cox Solutions Stores. Consumers also can sign-up at www.cox.com/giglife.

“We are starting in Phoenix, but not stopping there. Cox will deliver the choice of gigabit speeds to all of our customers nationwide,”added Esser.

While focused on bringing gigabit speeds to its customers, Cox also announced that it has doubled the speeds for its most popular tiers of service, benefiting the majority of its customers. Cox High Speed Internet Preferred has increased from 25 megabits per second to 50 megabits per second.

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.
