Cox Adds More Wholesale Markets
Cox Communications today announced that it will resell Sprint services in a number of new markets, including San Diego and Santa Barbara, Calif.; Topeka and Wichita, Kan.; and portions of northwest Arkansas. Cox already offers wholesale services in markets such as Omaha, Neb., Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla., and Rhode Island and parts of Connecticut. Cox predicts that it will be able to offer Sprint wireless services to 50% of its wireline/cable customers by the end of the year. Cox recently decided to scrap plans to offer services through its own wireless network, which was in the process of being built. Cox hasn't made a final decision on what to do with the assets of that network.
