Cox Communications internet plans and prices

Cox internet deals and speeds will vary by location, but they are still likely to be one of the cheapest and fastest internet options available for those in Cox service areas.

Additional Cox internet fees

The plan price is just the beginning of your final charges. If you need to rent a gateway modem from Cox, that’ll cost you $10.99/mo.* Add Cox Complete Care protections (extra security) and opt for a month-to-month no contract plan and your price goes up an extra $20/mo.* So initially, Cox Internet Starter 10 may cost $29.99, but when it’s all said and done, you may receive a bill for about $59.99/mo.*

Is Cox internet the best service for your home? We cover plan and service details, as well as how Cox compares to other providers, below to help you decide.

What we like

  • Plan options for everyone – Cox speed tiers range from 10 to 940 Mbps, so there’s a plan for virtually every need
  • Panoramic Wi-Fi – A powerful easy-to-use modem/router combo for a relatively low monthly rental fee
  • Elite Gamer service – Cox is the only provider to offer an add-on designed to reduce ping and lag, which is essential to any online gamer
  • Great discounts for bundling – If you need more than just internet, Cox is one of the most generous providers when it comes to bundle discounts

Things to consider

  • One-year contract – Moving or canceling service before the contract period ends may result in early termination fees
  • Data cap and overage fees – It will take a lot of internet use to go over the 1 TB/mo. data cap, but doing so could add $10 to your bill for every 50 GB you go over, up to $50
  • Average customer satisfaction scores – The American Customer Satisfaction Index gave Cox a 62/100 in 2020, up three points from last year but still trailing many of the major internet providers

Best Cox internet plans

When choosing an internet plan, consider the size of your household, the number of internet users, their activities and how many devices are usually connected to the network.
