[ALL] Cox Speeds History?

Does anyone have a list, or know a page, that lists the speeds offered by Cox since they started their own network in 2001 to today (IIRC)?

That's a start. I tried using Wayback but kept getting errors - probably was too far forward when they started using dynamically generated pages.

Thanks!

Cox@Home Orange County started in late 1996 using Cybersurfrs at 3000/256kbps. The speed didn't change when @Home went belly up.

More speed info can likely be found here at DSLR.. There were and are always threads about speed upgrades.

Skeechan,

Interesting...3/256 is what we started with back in 2001 or 2002 - forget which. It's interesting it was still that back in 1996.

We had Qwest "Megabit" service when it first came out here in Glendale in 1998 or 99 - 256K/256K, it used DUN, and you could only be on it for 2 hours and then you got automatically kicked off. If you paid $10 more, you could have it always-on. Then they increased the speed to 640K/256K before we dumped them for Cox for multiple reasons - most notably the line speed not staying constant and lots of CRC errors.

Thanks for the help guys! Interesting pieces of history.

Actually, prior to 2001 the modems were mostly provisioned wide open and data rates depended on the technology you got (early DOCSIS, Moto CDLP, LanCity, and Com21 for Cox IIRC)..they went as high as 10M down depending on the technology.

@Home wanted to provision the modems to a fixed, defined service level - it was actually going to be 128K/3M but several engineers at Cox were concerned that 128K up wasn't enough to support 3M down due to TCP replies so Cox ended up with 256K/3M

the 3M was actually to support the marketing claims at the time of "up-to 100 times faster than a 28K modem"...they provisioned it to 3M to allow for overhead incurred in the Ethernet to DOCSIS conversion at the modem so that you would have a better technical chance of achieving 2.8M down at your computer.

We were CDLP with Cybersurfrs and were limited to 3Mb from day one.

Could be wrong but this is what I remember for download speeds in Las Vegas. I've had Cox Cable since they bought out Prime cable. This is for the "Premier" tier.

1.5mb
3mb
5mb
10mb
15mb
22mb
