Frontier Has an Edge of Cox When It Comes to Contracts and Fees
Cox has one-year and contract-free options, depending on the plan you choose. Frontier also has contract-free options, where you can pay for your plan month to month.
Cox and Frontier typically provide promotional rates for the first 12 months but increase afterward. When you sign up with either provider, be sure to read how long the promotional period is and what to expect when the price changes.
Installation Isn’t Much Different Between Them
Frontier will waive the $85 expert installation fee when customers sign up for a qualified fiber internet plan. Cox offers a self-installation kit for $20 or professional installation that typically costs $100.
Cox Data Caps Diminish Its Value
All of Cox’s plans have a 1.25 TB data limit. If you exceed the data allowance, Cox will charge you $10 per 50 GB block of data. Customers have the option of getting unlimited data for an extra cost each month. Frontier’s plans all offer unlimited data at no additional charge.
