Cox Launches Wireless in Rhode Island, Connecticut, Cleveland

ATLANTA, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cox Communications today officially introduced its "Unbelievably Fair(SM)" mobile phone and high-speed Internet service across the state of Rhode Island and communities it serves in Connecticut and Cleveland, Ohio. Cox Wireless is also available in Hampton Roads, Va., Omaha, Neb., Orange County, Calif. and Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla.

"Our wireless offering has received a very enthusiastic response from customers of other providers," said Kelly Williams, Cox's vice president of wireless products and operations. "The extra value we provide with Beneficios Bundle Benefits(SM) and MoneyBack Minutes(SM) is financially rewarding to customers; it's a more fair approach to wireless and it's very convenient too. We are very excited to bring our fair approach to wireless to consumers in New England/Cleveland."

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 is the only wireless carrier to provide MoneyBack Minutes, or cash back on customers' bills for unused minutes each month rather than losing the unused minutes or carrying them over month-to-month with no monetary benefit. Its Bundle Benefits provides a free upgrade to customers who bundle two or more Cox services, such as a free premium channel or Movie Pak, high speed Internet upgrade, free unlimited long distance with Cox Digital Telephone service or earlier unlimited weeknight calling on Cox Wireless.

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.
