Starting earlier this week, Cox Business’ small and mid-size business (SMB) customers in northern Virginia started to see increased Internet speeds at no additional cost.

Cox Business customers now have higher upload and download speeds and can use “PowerBoost” capabilities for speeds as high as 25 Mbps at no additional cost. Cox Business Internet customers will automatically be migrated to the new higher-speed service tiers.

"Cox Business Internet customers count on our network to link them to critical resources, key suppliers, remote work sites and valued clients, whenever and wherever they need to," said JD Myers, VP of Cox Business in northern Virginia. "Our new, faster speeds are another step forward in our continuing commitment to providing small and mid-size businesses with the tools to help them increase efficiency and productivity, giving them the edge they need to win in the marketplace."

Cox Business increased the speeds across four tiers of service. On the slower end, the speed increased from 1.5 Mbps down to 2 Mbps, while the highest tier increased from 15 Mbps down and 2 Mbps up to 20 Mbps down and 3 Mbps up.

Last month, Cox Business launched the Premium Online Back-up and Premium Security Suite in northern Virginia to help business customers protect their local network data (story here).
