Cable provider Cox Communications plans to launch and operate wireless service in the U.S. The company indicated that it feels the need to compete with wireless companies and wants the ability to offer bundled services that include wireless. Cox mostly serves the south and southwest regions, and said that it will offer post-paid and pre-paid cellular phone service as well as wireless data service in those areas.

New slogans

Sharing the love of Cox.....

Wireless, broadband, and home phone.
