Cox tops cable industry with 200,000 business telecom customers
Cox Business announced today that it has passed the 200,000 business customer mark, which it said tops all MSOs in the business services space.
"Cox has completed voice service expansion to all of its markets and is now the seventh-largest telecom provider in the U.S.; this creates a compelling bundle for business customers already familiar with Cox video and high-speed data products," said Mark Bowser, VP of Cox Business, in a statement.
Last month, Cox launched an IP telephony platform that integrates the desktop phone, PC and wireless devices to provide business customers with better communications control, flexibility and functionality. With the launch of this service, Cox Business became the first cable provider in North America to deploy a fully-owned-and-managed IP telephony service that addresses the needs of the broad business market.
The business-focused division of Cox Communications, Cox Business was launched in 2000 and exceeded 100,000 customers in 2003.
