Is Cox good?

Georgia-based telecom company Cox provides TV, internet, phone, and home security services, and it offers several excellent combinations of those four services in bundles. For home use, it’s all coaxial-cable-based. Cox’s still-growing fiber-optic internet network is currently limited to commercial businesses.

Internet is Cox’s strongest area of service: its higher cable tiers are fast but relatively inexpensive. It’s also the only Cox service that we’d recommend as a standalone product, since its TV, phone, and home security services are just average. At best, Cox’s bundles are convenient.

Pros

  • Excellent internet service
  • Inexpensive packages

Cons

  • Average TV, phone, and home security services
  • 12–24-month service contracts depending on plan

BUNDLE WITH COX

Cox cable and internet deals

Cox isn’t offering any “doorbuster” deals to speak of at the moment, but we think its 30-day trial period and lack of multiple-year contracts on some plans easily qualify as cool stuff.

Cox equipment

Cox DVR/receiver

The Cox Contour DVR/receiver is available in two simply named models: Record 2, which can record two channels at once and store up to 100 hours of HD content, and Record 6, which records six channels simultaneously and stores up to 250 HD hours.

Both include installed streaming apps, like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Pandora, YouTube, and Tubi.

Cox modem/router

You can choose to use your own modem/router, but Cox’s Panoramic Wi-Fi Gateway isn’t bad for company-supplied gear—even if it is available only as a rental (unlike gear from other internet service providers, you can’t buy it outright).

On the other hand, Cox will only sell—not rent—Panoramic Wi-Fi Pods. These devices create a Wi-Fi mesh across your home. Like Eero and other mesh networks, Panoramic Wi-Fi Pods plug into A/C wall sockets to equalize coverage over a larger household area, eliminating dead spots.

Our final take on Cox

We’ve highlighted our favorite plans and packages, but one of the best things about Cox is its wide range of bundling options for internet, TV, phone, and home security. Internet is the only Cox service we’d recommend on its own, but the bundles offer convenient ways to build upon it.

Cox service is also probably available near you: Cox is the third-largest cable TV and internet provider in the US, covering Arizona, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and Virginia.

Even if Cox is the only provider in your area, you should be able to secure a fast internet hookup or bundle that won’t cause you to rage against the tele-monopoly. There are worse companies to work with (we’ve reviewed ‘em, trust us).
