Cox Communications has announced it is first introducing its new wireless phone and mobile high speed Internet services in Hampton Roads, VA; Omaha, NE; and Orange County, CA.

“More than forty percent of our residential customers trust us to be their telephone service provider and two-thirds of our subscribers take all three of our existing services. Our customers have asked us to include wireless services as part of their bundle and we’ve listened,” said Pat Esser, president of Cox Communications, in a statement.

Cox’s wireless service launched to a test group of Cox customers in the first three markets, and the company will expand the service across Hampton Roads, Omaha and Orange County in 2010. While Cox is initially offering an integrated wireless service to residential customers, it will deliver business class services to Cox Business customers in the future.

Cox will also be introducing a new retail experience in Hampton Roads, Omaha and Orange County and is increasing its commercial space presence significantly. Over time, the company estimates it will grow its workforce in these markets by about 20 percent throughout its retail locations.

To celebrate its landmark entry to the wireless business, Cox is donating new computer technology centers, valued at $25,000 each, to a local Boys & Girls Club in Hampton Roads, Omaha and Orange County. The local centers will include new computers, access to Cox high-speed Internet and education about the safe and responsible use of digital technology.
