Cox Business maintains its leadership position among U.S. business Ethernet providers, leading the cable industry and ranking above several incumbent telecommunications operators on Vertical Systems Group’s 2008 Leaderboard. According to the market research firm, Cox Business is the fourth largest provider of business Ethernet services in the U.S. based on customer ports.
Cox Business became the first MSO to enter the top tier of U.S. business Ethernet providers in 2007 with a mid-year market share of 8.9 percent, and that share climbed to 10 percent by 2008. The company attributes its aggressive growth to its successful history of delivering Ethernet services to customers served by both fiber and HFC.
