Cox Business unveils faster Internet speeds

Cox Business announced that 150Mbps/20Mbps download/upload speeds are available for small- and medium-sized businesses requiring a super-fast connection to the Internet to serve their customers. In Arizona, this level of connectivity is only available from Cox Business.

“Our business clients want faster, secure Internet access that improves office efficiency and reduces administrative costs. We’re providing more choices to meet their needs,” says Hyman Sukiennik, vice president, Cox Business.

Technology-driven businesses utilize data-intensive applications requiring faster data speeds so they can transfer massive files between locations, share work applications and be able to access critical data on remote servers. Retail stores require significant credit card processing ability and high storage capacity. Health care providers, advertising agencies, banks and law offices move huge amounts of data between employees and among clients.

“Cox Business knows that business isn’t static. Our customers’ need for speed expands and contracts and we’re there, constantly evaluating to make sure we are providing the most efficient Internet experience possible for most budgets,” says Sukiennik.

Cox Business offers an array of speed levels for Arizona businesses depending on their needs. Factors that determine which Internet speed for data transfer is right for a particular business depends on the type of business using the Internet, the number of employees online, their job tasks related to the Internet and how customers interact with Web-based services provided by the business. When choosing Internet speeds, businesses need to think about what information they are sharing and how fast they need to send/receive it. Other determining factors are the number of business locations and what percentage of the business operations requires use of the Internet.
