Cox Increases Broadband Data Caps
Cox High Speed Internet subscribers are getting a big bump in how much data they can consume, with no rate increase throughout the tiers affected. This means consumers can stream more video than ever from websites such as Netflix and YouTube, without going over data limits. Service tiers affected include Starter, Essential, Preferred, Premiere, and Ultimate services.
Premiere (100 Mbps) customers, for example, will see their data increase from 300 GB to 700 GB per month. Ultimate (150 Mbps) customers seem to be getting the best deal, with their data limits increased from 400 GB per month to 2 TBs per month.
Those who subscribed to Cox’s 1 Gbps “Gigablast” service, only available in select markets, will still have the same data limit of 1TB per month.
Here are the new data caps as posted by DSLReports:
- Starter 150 GB/month
- Essential 250 GB/month
- Preferred 350 GB/month (the most popular plan)
- Premier 700 GB/month
- Ultimate 2 TB/month
