Overview of Cox Communications Deals
Cox Communications’ deals and promotions are a little harder to find than most other major ISPs, but worth taking advantage of. You may not see such offers as free gift cards, but Cox deals will appeal to those who plan on bundling with traditional TV service and/or are heavy internet users (i.e., gamers and binge-streamers). With Cox, you get:
- Nationwide hotspot access
- 30-day money-back guarantee
- Free Quality of Service (QoS) software
The above features, among others, are applicable to each Cox internet-only or internet and TV bundle. Sports, gaming, and streaming fans stand to get the most value out of Cox with offers such as the 4K Contour Stream Player, Cox’s streaming device, and Cox’s Elite Gamer software.
Cox Internet-only Deals
With speed up to 150 Mbps for $59.99 a month, the Internet Preferred 150 plan is Cox’s best internet-only deal. Admittedly, there are plans with more speed at the same price from some of Cox’s biggest competitors (i.e., Verizon Fios), but Cox is the only one that offers nationwide hotspots. The remainder of Cox’s internet features are similar to what you’d see from a major internet provider:
- Advanced network security
- Whole-home WiFi
- Remote control access to your WiFi network
The key to locking in the above features is to rent Cox’s Panoramic WiFi Gateway. You can save money by using your own router, but renting one from Cox is a good idea if you’re not tech-savvy.
Cox Bundle Deals
|Plan Name||Monthly Price (savings)||Deal|
|Bronze Duo||$149.99 per month
($10 off internet)
|Gold Duo||$169.99 per month||
|Platinum Duo||$189.99 per month||
The Cox Gold Duo plan is the best bundle Cox has for cable TV fans and households with heavy internet usage. The Bronze Duo plan featuring faster download speeds has more to offer no matter your household size. You will get up to 500 Mbps download speed and over 140 channels for $169.99 a month. Cox is currently offering new Bronze Duo subscribers free installation, a free TV receiver, and access to HBO Max, Cinemax, STARZ, and Showtime.
Cord cutters can opt to bundle their internet plan with Cox Contour Stream Player. Just remember, Contour Stream Player subscribers do not have access to the same channels traditional TV customers have. You will get access to Cox’s on-demand library, which houses over 150,000 shows and movies.
Cox Communications Discounts
In line with most major providers, Cox offers discounts to low-income households through their Connect2Compete program. Read our guide on low-income internet options for more information on Cox’s eligibility requirements. Cox currently does not offer first responders, military, or senior citizens discounts. However, you can catch a few discounts on internet and TV service with Cox’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.
How to get better deals with Cox
There are a few universal guidelines you should keep in mind when comparing Cox internet plans:
- Consider Cox internet & TV bundle plans. While the majority of providers offer some discount for bundling multiple services together, the savings with Cox Communications are extreme. Oftentimes you can get TV or phone service tacked onto your internet plan for barely any extra money.
- Confirm the final price of your Cox internet plan. While the savings with bundles are very high, it’s important to read the fine print to find what your normal price will be after the promotional period ends. Sometimes you may end up paying more than you expected after a year or two of service.
- Buy the cheapest Cox plan that meets your speed requirements. While it can be tempting to go for the best service, the truth is most households don’t need incredibly fast speeds. It’s important to find the middle ground between price and speed so you don’t over-pay.
- Self-install if you rent Cox equipment. Cox self-installation is a $20, one-time fee, which is a fraction of Cox’s professional installation fee. Plus, the price for Cox’s self-installation does not change based on how much is installed like their professional installation fee.
