Cox Communications has concluded its integration with the other members of CableWiFi by wrapping up a peering arrangement with Bright House Networks.
With the integration of Cox and Bright House Networks hotspots, Cox customers may now access free WiFi in Orlando, Tampa, Daytona, Northern Virginia, Connecticut and Indiana.
