Cox has risen to become one of the most popular TV service providers in the nation. It also offers other services like phone, automation, internet, etc. At this time, the company says it has more than 6 million customers comprising businesses and homes. Quality service is one of the things where it competes soundly with such players as AT&T, the telco that last year acquired the DirecTV business and expanded into multichannel video programming. Both companies have wide coverage within the U.S. as well as outside.
Cox and AT&T both use the latest technology to provide broadband, telephone, and TV services to their respective customers. Each also keeps coming up with attractive deals and packages to entice more consumers to sign up, mostly successfully. Any person contemplating a choice between the two internet choices has a daunting task ahead. Therefore, we thought we would make things easier. With any luck, you won’t be struggling with the comparison of these services.
Cox offers internet at six different speeds and as many packages: Standard, Everyday Low Price, Turbo, Ultimate 50, Extreme, and Basic. Standard costs $34.99 per month for the first year and offers speeds up to 15 Mbps for downloads and 1 Mbps for uploads. The Everyday Low Price package comes at an affordable rate of $14.99 per month and carries download speeds of 2/1 Mbps, while the Turbo pack gives up to 20 Mbps download speed and 2 Mbps upload speed at a price of $44.99 per month.
In the Extreme package, subscribers get 30 Mbps download speed, 5 Mbps upload speed, and free in-home Wi-Fi for a whole year, at $54.99 a month for that year. The Basic plan brings 6 Mbps download speed and 1 Mbps upload speed, at a monthly rate of $29.99 for the year. Lastly, you have the Ultimate 50 with 50/5 Mbps speed and free in-home Wi-Fi, at $64.99/month.
AT&T has a lower number of offerings but offers comparable value – the U-Verse High Speed Internet Plan comes at $30.00 a month with 6 Mbps download speed. One attractive option is to bundle this with the DirecTV Select package to get 145 channels in a really neat deal. Another double play package you should check out is the DirecTV Choice package + U-Verse High Speed Internet combo, which gets you 24 Mbps download speed, and 175 channels.
