The Good

  • Fast Speed Plans
  • Bundling Options
  • Affordable Prices

Fast Speed

One of the most important features of internet service is the speed that a customer can download. Cox Internet provides excellent speeds to its customers. It offers five internet speeds for customers to choose from. Those internet plans are:

  • Cox Internet Starter 10 — $29.99 per month, 10 Mbps
  • Cox Internet Essential 30 — $39.99 per month, 30 Mbps
  • Cox Internet Preferred 150 — $59.99 per month, 150 Mbps
  • Cox Internet Ultimate — $79.99 per month, 300 Mbps
  • Gigablast —$99.99 per month, 940 Mbps

What might jump out to you is the high-speed access on the upper end. Cox offers some impressive download speeds High-speed internet that fast is quickly emerging within the industry, and Cox offers a quality gigabit plan.

Bundling Options

Most cable providers give you the option to bundle TV and internet, and so does Cox. But unlike the competition, Cox has nine ways to bundle their services:

  • Bronze Bundle — $89.99 per month, 140+ channels, 150 mbps, phone
  • Silver Bundle —  $109.99 per month, 140+ channels, 300 Mbps, phone
  • Silver Bundle — $129.99 per month,  170+ channels, 940 Mbps, phone
  • Gold Bundle — $129.00 per month, 250+ channels, 300 Mbps, phone
  • Platinum Bundle — $159.99 per month, 250+ channels, 940 Mbps, phone
  • $64.99 per month, 75+ channels, 10 Mbps, phone
  • $74.99 per month, 75+ channels, 30 Mbps, phone
  • $94.99 per month, 75+ channels, 150 Mbps, phone
  • $137.48 per month, 140+ channels, 30 Mbps, phone

You can see more details on Cox's website and customize your plans to include phone service and home security. 

Most of these bundled services have a two-year contract.

Affordable Prices

Cox's internet package prices are competitive for the industry and are lower than some of its competitors' prices.

Cox Internet also provides people with a lower-speed option (the Essential package) if you don't need as much power behind your internet usage. The prices stated above do not include taxes, modem or router rental fees, or the $10 per month surcharge for a month-to-month contract instead of a one year contract. 

New customers can also receive a discounted price for the first 12 months.

These prices are not exceptionally high and are even low compared to some of their competitors' prices. This is especially true for the higher packages. Some other internet service providers charge almost double for that high of a speed.

The Bad

  • Data Limits
  • No-Contract Fee

Data Limits

Cox gives all its customers a data cap of 1 TB per month. As far as data caps go, 1 TB is common in the industry and provides users with plenty of data.

Customers who surpass their data limit will be charged an additional $10 per up to 50 GB excess data used.

This can be an issue for customers if they want the speed that is associated with a certain package but need more than its allotted amount of data. Not all ISPs put caps on data usage, and unlimited data plans are growing in popularity, so this does put Cox at a disadvantage.

No-Contract Fee

Most service providers will require you to sign at least a 12-month contract, and Cox is no different unless you're willing to pay more. Cox charges $10 per month if you want to forego a contract.

However, some internet providers offer month-to-month plans with no added fees, so if you're not sure if you'll stay in one place or stick with Cox, you might be more interested in working with another company.

The Bottom Line

Cox Internet does a good job of providing a lot of options for their customers to choose from. These packages are very reasonably priced and compare well with their competitors in the industry.

There are a few drawbacks to the services provided by Cox Internet, like the data caps on their packages. Overall, Cox Internet could be a good choice for customers who are looking for specific needs to be met.

I've lived in several US cities. Most of them I used Cox when available because they were the most familiar to me. Looking back, I have only bad memories of them. In each of the places but Vegas was probably the worst. Not just bad but illegal. I have had several complaints about conflicts of interest and allowing law enforcement access to my dwelling without my permission. And alternatively, not taking care of their responsibility when lines were faulty outside of my residence. I really don't even want to give them 1 star but just trying to be fair because there were some days everything worked correctly

After Cox telling me how great panoramic WiFi was. I thought I would try. Well after Coronavirus ends, I’m telling them to take the CRAP out of my house. Biggest lie ever! Sit on patio and get neighbors WiFi , which is locked, but can’t get mine. Calling Best Buy for evaluation and going with them. Don’t waste you money on Cox CRAP!

The company continued tyo escalate the prices without authorization of the customer and they were not supportive. They refused to use the proper reception box for the quality of Television I had purchased. The tech at the place of purchase disclosed I would have problems with the normal box and I asked Cox Cable for the proper box. Their answer was I get the one that is given to everyone after they admitted the had the correct one in stock. Once on line my television continued to stop working periodically then would come bac for a few hours and the event happened over and over again. I changed to simple antenna and my television works well. Figured I have saved well over $12,000.00 since I cancelled Cox Cable.

The internet has regular disruptions (I'm in OK). There is a data cap with very few notifications on updates. When you get to the end, it goes super fast and doesnt add up on the usage. I used 15% in 3 days towards the end of the month so that i would be charged overage before the month was over. They really seem to take advantage of their costumers and there costs are ridiculous in camparison to other providers I have used.

If I could give COX a lower rating I would, I pay for 100MB broadband which they say is available to my apt. In the evening I get 1-2mbps it’s appalling. I phone to complain and the service is no good. They blame my equipment rather than admitting they don’t have the bandwidth to support the speeds they sell. My router, tv and laptop are less than 6months old. Netflix struggles to stream...

Background: Personally, when I lived in Missouri, I had several different internet providers in Missouri during college because of moving around. I have never had such an issue with internet monopolies but cox internet is a true monopoly of this area that provide internet to Newton, KS. If you talk to other providers there are often fees to put poles up in your area, the satellite is not capable of reaching you, or there is no clear line of sight available. I am now living in a state you can see for 10 miles in every direction and I can't get a decent reasonably priced internet source. Internet in Kansas is a complete disaster. Current and future issues: Furthermore, after much review of internet in the Newton, KS area I decided to go with cox because they seemed to offer the best prices and were actually the only internet provider that my current location, which is right in the heart of Newton, and should have no problem getting internet with a town of 20k people. Wrong, you not only have to deal with a monopolistic company like cox you have to sift through the piles of fee's and hidden 1yr/2yr. agreements then look to the fine print to see what the actual cost of your basic internet may be after thus said time frame. Customer services with Cox: Customer service, oh my goodness, my wife called cox customer service to cancel our outrageous bill of $200 and start a different package with just internet so we could save money, the person on the other end of the line taunted my wife and said things like, "you know what you are doing?, how will you protect yourself if you don't have cox homelife anymore?" My wife asked if we could do the 30mbps speed instead of the package that we were on at that time. The lady from cox said, "no you can't do that." Then, my wife reminded the lady from cox that we can pay a cancellation fee and get out of the contract. The lady on the other end said, "well, ugh, yes you can do that, but that would not make sense." During the conversation, my wife felt as though she were treated very poorly and with a great deal of apathy. I called cox internet 2/8/20 to see why I was charged twice for a bill after we went with the 30mbps speed and they kept me on the phone to wait for a representative for over an hour. Really wish I had another option to purchase internet for the same price or lower where I live. Solution = move to a different location to get an internet service that works --- well that seams really drastic?? Think about this, in mid-Missouri where I went to college the prices for internet were less costly as well as having higher internet speeds and more options of where to get your service from. Customer service = none Cox internet = scam and a waste of your time and hard earned money but because that is your only option you are doomed and stuck in a crappy situation. If you have other options and can afford to pay more for internet, and can get different internet, please, please DO NOT use cox services.
