Been with Cox since 2003 till March 2012. Then I move to get Verizon Fios business.

I can say the connection is very stable and reliable. Barely had outages, maybe once a year Cox was down but for a short time. Speeds are pretty decent and about what is advertise. I had the premier package, The download speeds average of 28Mbps and upload speeds were about 4Mbps. Upload speed is very important to me since I host a minecraft and Team Fortress 2 game server. Player slots were limited by upload speed which was fine since I understand I have cable. The only negative side was the small lag spike players complain, it stop when I use Fiber now so I know it was my Cox connection causing it. Plus it's on a share line with the rest of my area. You won't notice it if you don't host any FPS game servers, but just do regular small uploads you will be fine. Yes I'm one of the few use really needs a good upload speed.
