Cox Internet Speeds

Cable provider Cox Communications delivers the “last mile” of a subscriber’s internet connection over coaxial cable lines. Originally used to send TV signals, old-school coaxial cables today provide high bandwidth and high download speeds. And although fiber connections outperform coaxial cable on the bandwidth and download speed metrics, the widespread cable infrastructure around the country means Cox is able to provide high-speed cable internet to customers who otherwise would be stuck with a slower, more expensive option.

On average, Cox’s download rate ranges between 450 and 500 Mbps, according to our speed tests. At the same time, we also measured the average latency on Cox internet to be around 15-20 ms. To put the numbers in context, terrestrial internet connections usually have latency in the 5–70 ms range, while satellite broadband connections can be in the range of 500–800 ms.
