In a bid to reach out to more customers, Cox Communications is taking its Gigabit Internet service for residential customers to Tucson, Arizona.
It will begin at The Place @ Presidio Trails and it is being marketed under the brand name “G1GABLAST”. The service provider is hoping to offer Internet speeds of 100 times faster than the average speed in the U.S.
A press statement said that Cox is expanding the availability of residential Gigabit Internet speeds to new developments across Arizona and in Cox locations across the country. “We are excited to deliver the choice of Gigabit speeds to our customers,” said Cox Communications President Pat Esser.
The company has already launched G1GABLAST service in 10 states and will have Gigabit speeds in all of its markets by the end of 2016. Cox has been deploying Gigabit speeds to businesses for more than 11 years. “Coupled with our 250 employees in southern Arizona and more than 24,000 nationwide, our latest investments and the deployment of the fastest speeds available are powering economic growth and development for businesses and residents of the communities we serve,” Esser added.
G1GABLAST will be available in the Tucson market for $99.99 per month when combined with Cox’s most popular service bundles. The service offers speeds as fast as 1,000 megabits per second. It will deliver more speed, a powerful home network and rich broadband enabled services to customers. The service also includes the latest high-speed Wi-Fi router, one terabyte of cloud storage, Cox Security Suite and Family Protection and 10 email boxes each with 15 Gigabytes of storage.
Mayor Jonathan Rothschild thanked Cox for their continued good service to local residents and promised them full support. “Cox has consistently and aggressively increased its investment in its broadband network in Tucson, particularly in our downtown, along with their ongoing support of nonprofits and education in our community,” he said.
“I applaud their continued commitment to our community by expanding Gigabit services to our Tucson residents.”
