Cox Communications has launched gigabit internet service for residents of Louisiana including Greater Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Acadiana areas. The company’s G1GABLAST product offers internet speeds up to 100 times faster than current average speeds in the U.S.
Cox plans on improving its infrastructure to provide 1,000 megabits per second residential internet service in all of its markets by the end of 2016.
“We are excited about our roadmap to offer gigabit speeds to all of our residential customers,” said Jacqui Vines, senior vice president and region manager for Cox’s Southeast Region.
“Making technology and connectivity more readily accessible to residential customers – as it has to business customers – is sound business sense,” said Adam Knapp, president and CEO of the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC).
Cox also announced customers with the Ultimate Internet package will get a speed increase from 150 megabits per second to 200 megabits per second later this summer.
Cox’s G1GABLAST service has already been launched in parts of Phoenix, Arizona, Orange County CA, Las Vegas and Omaha.
