Cox to Cease Selling Wireless Today, Kill Services in March

Cox Communications said that starting today it will no longer sell wireless services to new customers. Cox had previously partnered with Sprint to resell Sprint services, eventually purchased its own AWS spectrum and launched its own 3G network in a small number of markets, before finally killing plans to sell its own 3G services and began reselling Sprint's services. Cox cited its relatively small footprint, its inability to compete with the larger, national-level wireless providers, and its inability to score "iconic devices" as the reasons behind its exit from the wireless business. Cox will continue providing service for its wireless customers through March 30, 2012. Cox said it will extend special offers to customers to help them transition to other providers, including a $150 credit on their bill for every line of wireless phone service disconnected. Cox said that customers will be able to keep their handsets, and it will wave early termination fees. Cox's cable television and internet services are not affected by this change.
