Cox Officially Jumps Into the Wireless Pool
After nearly a year of trial testing, Cox Communications is officially launching its wireless service, called "Unbelievably Fair." That is the service's official name, not an adjectival description. Unbelievably Fair will launch in three markets: Orange County, California; Omaha, Nebraska; and Hampton Roads, Virginia, the original three test markets. Monthly service will be available for $40, and Cox is planning some unique offers, like offering to refund some money for unused minutes, up to a $20 savings per month. Cox will also offer bundled packages that include a home phone, a wireless phone, a home data connection and cable television. The company will buy 3G network access from Sprint, and will offer devices including Android phones like the HTC Desire and Motorola Milestone (Droid). Cox has previously said it plans to build its own network, and has indicated an interest to use 4G LTE technology. The wireless service is available now in the select markets, and Cox expects to expand its service to any market where it maintains a foothold in cable television.
