Company to Launch Wireless in Additional Cities in 2011
ATLANTA - Cox Communications today officially introduced its "Unbelievably Fair" mobile phone and high-speed Internet service throughout Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla. Oklahoma City and Tulsa mark the 5th wireless cities for Cox, following the company's initial launch in Hampton Roads, Va., Omaha, Neb. and Orange County, Calif.
The addition of wireless to Cox's existing bundle of video, Internet and landline telephone services brings an unprecedented value proposition to consumers and introduces greater ease in integrating home and mobile services. Cox, the only wireless carrier to provide MoneyBack MinutesSM, or cash back on customers' bills for unused minutes each month, has received a very enthusiastic response from customers of other providers who would lose unused minutes or carry them over month-to-month with no monetary benefit.
"We are very excited to bring Cox's fair approach to wireless to consumers in Oklahoma," said Len Barlik, Cox's executive vice president of product development and management. "We are introducing new service and features to the Cox bundle that were built on fairness - and our customers are telling us they like it. We plan to bring the same value from bundling services, unbelievably fair plans and easy to use products and services to more Cox customers this year."
Following Oklahoma, Cox will soon launch wireless service in its New England market, which includes Rhode Island and Cox communities in Connecticut and Cleveland, Ohio. Later this year, the company will introduce Cox Wireless in additional markets, bringing its wireless service to more than 50 percent of the Cox footprint.
