Cox Communications has expanded its fastest broadband service to residential and business customers in Northern Virginia. Powered by DOCSIS 3.0 technology, Cox’s Ultimate Internet service delivers speeds in Fairfax County and Fredericksburg at up to 50 Mbps downloads and 5 Mbps uploads. Speeds are further enhanced with PowerBoost. Standard price for the residential Ultimate Internet package will be $139.99 per month, with an introductory rate of $109 per month.
Northern Virginia business customers will also be able to take advantage of DOCSIS 3.0 technology through Cox Business Internet’s new premium package with download speeds up to 50 Mbps and 5 Mbps uploads. While Cox Business offers several fiber-based advanced solutions with higher speeds, the premium package provides an additional option for small to mid-sized businesses.
The company has already launched DOCSIS 3.0 in Lafayette Parish, LA, and plans to offer Ultimate Internet to several Cox markets by the end of 2009, and to more than two-thirds of its footprint in 2010.
