Report: Cox launches D3 in Sierra Vista, Ariz
Cox Communications recently launched its DOCSIS 3.0-enabled “Ultimate Internet” tier in Sierra Vista, Ariz.
According to The Sierra Vista Herald, the service, which features download speeds of up to 50 Mbps and upload speed of up to 5 Mbps, launched last week. Like it has done in previous DOCSIS 3.0 launches, Cox is also offering its PowerBoost technology to its Sierra Vista subscribers, which can provide short bursts of additional speeds for a total of 55 Mbps.
Cox’s main competitor in Sierra Vista, and throughout most of the state, is Qwest, which mainly offers a 20 Mbps service, although it has a 40 Mbps tier in limited areas of the state.
Cox first rolled out DOCSIS 3.0 in August in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Cox was offering Ultimate Internet for $89.99 per month when the service made its debut in Arizona last year, but there was no information from Cox on the cost in Sierra Vista.
Cox, the nation’s third-largest cable operator, has previously said it hopes to have DOCSIS 3.0 in place in two-thirds of its systems by the end of this year.
Cox previously launched DOCSIS 3.0 in Rhode Island, northern Virginia, Lafayette Parish, La., and in Fredericksburg and Fairfax counties in Virginia.
