[ALL] Cox Annual Speed Upgrade

anyone besides the Rhode Island Market and the Virgina Market
get the annual speed upgrades yet?

seems a lot of markets have not made speed upgrades to their premier and ultimate tiers in over 2 years now

Yup, we got it around the middle of last week here in the Fort Walton Beach FL market.

Nice speed boost on Premier!

Here's the email they sent:

Congratulations! You're the proud owner of 36 Mbps.

Download, stream, share, play, surf, enjoy. Your Internet is even faster now.

We have improved your download speeds by 8 more Mbps, with speeds twelve times faster than DSL! Cox High Speed Internet now has new speeds- for the 9th straight year!

Even faster speeds for all your connected devices and needs
Includes PowerBoost® for those extra bursts when you need it
Game faster, share more, stream videos, upload with ease, and much more

Best of all, you don't have to do a thing - just enjoy!

Thanks for being a valued Cox customer.

Sincerely,

Your Cox team

Note: We're actually seeing over 50meg speed boosts using a Cisco DPC3010 now bonding 5 download channels.

Here in Vegas my modem just started to channel bond on upstream. I have the ultimate tier so I'm hoping for a increase this time around but doubtful

I believe it was 28Mbps down with PowerBoost to 36. I'm not sure if they bumped the upstream as well.

I received in my bill where they increased all HSI and phone service. But Ultimate HSI rates will be lowered. Go figure.

reply to Beezel
yeah i heard that HSI and phone are going up a little bit and ultimate is coming down and the reason for this is to get more customers to upgrade to ultimate of course not until the speed increase comes

What's the source? If Ultimate is going down, I'd be a happy camper, $99.00 is pricy - hopefully, our monthly cap will go up too

Well cox pricing has always been a market by market deal, same goes for internet speed increase's. I do think Ultimate is a little to pricey, as it is $110 a month here without any kind of discounted rate. I am lucky to be one of the first couple markets, to see the 100/20 speed upgrade for ultimate.

Which makes thing's a little better, but with such a tough economy the cheaper the better. I am luckily still saving some money on ultimate promotion deal. But once it is up, I do plan to call cox and try to get some kind of discounted rate. As I do feel being a long time customer, have had there internet service since they started offering internet service way back when. So all company's should want to help offer saving's to customer's, who have been with them a long time. I understand offering deal's to get new customer's, but to me that doesn't mean you can't look out for long time customer's who stay in good standing's paying there bill's. Also offering saving's keeps your customer's happy, and the company still makes plenty of money to be successful business imo.

I believe the ultimate rate is going down $10 or so, I don't have the paper atm. But the price I think will be around $109. But not 100% sure. If I find the paper I will post a photocopy of it.

Well I think it should be closer to the $100 range, the $110-$120 is a bit much I think for residential tier, which has cap's.

Well if your a current customer paying that $120 a month for ultimate. You should be calling cox's billing department asking about saving some money, as long as your in good standing's with them.

$110.00 for ultimate? You sure? Ultimate is only $99.00 and should be nationwide. If it goes down to $89.00 I'd be a happy camper. I wish Cox would give us bundled savings with TV and internet. Their phone is expensive and have Vonage for only $13.00 a month, UL US and canada calling, for life.

When I had Cox phone, their $29.00 easily turned to $50.00 and that's just expensive.

Wonder if they're going to standardize the $110 price across all markets. If they are, I may end up dropping it unless it comes with a nice speed increase.

Weird, it's only $100.00 here, I *HOPE* it stays the same, Cox needs to keep their performance pledge going
