Cox Communications Adds 5,000 New WiFi HotspotsCox Communications has launched more than 5,000 new WiFi hotspots in Arizona bringing the total number of Cox WiFi hotspots available nationwide to over 10,000.

These hotspots are strategically located in high-traffic areas like businesses, hotels, restaurants and malls. They were launched during the festive Christmas season when many people were out shopping and in need of Internet services.

Adding to the current Cox WiFi markets in Connecticut, Northern Virginia, Omaha, Phoenix, Las Vegas, San Diego, Rhode Island and Sun Valley, the new hotspots are located throughout Tucson and the greater Phoenix metro area. Lewis Roberts, the Executive Director of Wireless Broadband Access at Cox Communications promised customers a better experience moving forward.

“Whether your holiday travels take you to the east coast or west coast, Cox WiFi hotspots will help customers connect to the devices and content that matter most,” he said. “Whether it’s web browsing, social networks, home monitoring or simply finding a restaurant or tracking down a gift — Cox’s High Speed Internet service extends well beyond the home.”

Accessing Cox WiFi is very simple even for new customers. When customers near a Cox WiFi hotspot, they will see the Cox WiFi network location (SSID) in the list of available networks on their wireless device.  Customers simply enter their Cox user ID and password to log in to Cox WiFi.  Once authenticated, they will be able to browse the internet as they would from home.

Cox WiFi and Cable WiFi are free for Cox customers with Preferred, Premiere, Ultimate or G1GABLAST service. “WiFi plays an important role in keeping people mobilized,” Lewis said.  “By adding these additional hotspots, Cox is able to deliver reliable high-speed Internet service to our customers in their homes and on the go.  Cox is committed to providing solutions not only for today but also for the future.”
