[ALL] Price is Justified only if...............

See the rate increase is justified if Cox Actually gives us Customers some meat on the bone so to speak, in other words internet speeds cap increase from say 45 download to 65 download etc. Cox communications could easy do this However that's not the case,i subsidize those NEW CUSTOMER COMING TO THEIR COMPANY Wanna make a bet am not look at your cox home page go to Internet see that price this is "ONLY" for NEW CUSTOMERS Unlike people like me that have had internet with cox since June 2001!!! LOYALTY doesn't matter.

My dream is for another Company cable provider to come in my area and give cox run for the money.

Some markets already got free speed increases. It will take a little time to get all markets upgraded.

I went from 25/2 to 50/5 for free.

If you think outside the box, you can always take advantage of the new subscriber rates any time you want to.

By the way, plural for family is families. Family's is the possessive form of family.

I called Cox when I noticed that the price would be increasing, to downgrade my plan (this was before the network speed upgrade.) Maybe it was just because I was nice and polite, but they gave me the 6 month promo offer for $75 per month.

There's a catch 22 on that must not have cox service for 3 months something like that,

we did have a speed increase to POWER BOOST TOTAL 46/10 and am 97 miles from their Headquarters.

Some DSL providers Require 2 year contract,

So Google FIBER GET YOUR A$$ HERE..

and if Cox does the increase in the so called speed like they did this time they charged me $3.00 more.

why cant they just increase the Cap to us consumers? instead of 250 GB increase this to 300 GB.

because TV needs to be protected. if they raised caps in relativity to speed or price that'd increase cord cutting.

Well Protecting the TV as you say, this is making Prices Higher no Competition like Georgia wants the Broadband ban in the state.
Competition hurts no one what so ever.

I know 9 People that canceled all or part of their service from Cox one reason the Price!. my Locals will go through my satellite which is $3.00 Cox same channels $25.66. May please be here!!!

Cox rep treated my Sister like Garbage to the point she hung up on them, shes thinking about going to satellite Much cheaper $39.99 Compared to cox 80..
Where do you think they will pass this lost revenue to that's you.

GEORGIA INTERNET KILLERS, STOP THIS ALL

Theres no Competition where I live no such thing theres two providers actually three Att /wind-stream and Cable which is Expensive, Comcast is coming to this area hope its my Road\, i wanna get away from cox as quickly as i can.
i can get through them 150/65 but cox offers 46/10 for the price Comcast would offer me which is $70.00 per month even if comcast is $80 still cheaper for more speed.

Do we as Consumer need Competition Yes well we get this NO.

The following Bill would have Let all providers on the existing Lines be it DSL/CABLE.The infrastructure is there but is Comcast would be allowed over Cox Lines like this bill would have allowed,We all would be Better off.

Specifically, the Act would make it unlawful for any broadband network provider to discriminate against any content, applications, or services, or to refuse to connect to other broadband providers. It would also make it unlawful for any broadband provider to restrict the sending or receiving of lawful conduct, to charge premiums for unrestricted access to lawful content
