Cox Latest to Offer Wi-Fi
750 Free Hotspots in Virginia and Connecticut
Following on the heels of Cablevision, Comcast and Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications is the latest cable operator to offer their broadband and television subscribers free Wi-Fi connectivity. The company is holding a press event later today to announce that they'll be offering the free Wi-Fi service at more than 750 Wi-Fi hotspots located in popular, high traffic locations such as shopping districts, cafes, malls, arenas, restaurants and parks. As the company's coverage map
indicates, the deployment is focused primarily on the company's more profitable markets in Northern Virginia and Connecticut. The Cox Wi-Fi FAQ
