A better way to enjoy the internet. At speeds that leave Cox High Speed Internet in the dust.

With Fios 100/100 Mbps speed tier, you can download or upload a 2-hour HD video (5 MB) in 6.8 minutes*. Have Cox’s 50/5 Mbps speed, you’ll wait twice as long to see the video and almost 20 times longer to send it!

Don’t be taken in by the claims of other network providers. The truth is, not all networks are created equal. Check out the difference below for yourself.
