There are two tiers to the service: a pay-as-you-go data plan that costs $15 per month and an unlimited data plan that costs $45 per month. Notably, the release states that at this time, the service is exclusively offered to Cox residential internet users. Cox’s 5G network, which offers faster data rates than the company’s worldwide 4G network, is also available in much of Hampton Roads. Cox Communications President Mark Greatrex stated in the announcement that the business had conducted in-depth research on what customers wanted from a mobile provider.
Hampton Roads home internet users now have access to the new service as Cox Communications, a cable television and internet provider, enters the mobile phone network industry. The region is one of a select group of test areas where the company is introducing its Cox Mobile service before later expanding, the company said on Monday. Las Vegas and Omaha, Nebraska, are two additional pilot locations.
Cox Mobile provides clients with a straightforward, adaptable, and dependable mobile experience wherever they are, according to Greatrex. As more high-speed internet rivals announce intentions to enter the Hampton Roads area, Cox is launching the service. Parts of Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, and Chesapeake without access to Verizon Fios would receive a $83 million high-speed fibre network, according to an announcement made in July by internet service provider Lumos. Following an announcement made in April 2021, MetroNet will build a fibre network in Norfolk, a city where Cox has long been the only high-speed internet provider.
