Cox launches Phoenix WiFi hotspots

At today’s city of Phoenix Technology Summit, Councilman Bill Gates shared that Cox Communications has activated more than 500 city-wide Cox WiFi hotspots in the valley for Cox High Speed Internet customers and visitors to the valley who are cable internet customers in other areas of the country. The Cox WiFi hotspots are located in Phoenix’s City Council District 3 at locations such as the Phoenix Workforce Connection (7th St. and Mountain View), Sunnyslope Community Center (802 E. Vogel Ave.), and Palma Park (8940 N. 12’h St.), just to name a few. Cox will deploy more than 1,200 hotspots in communities valley wide by the end of the year, with a goal of more than 2,500 hot spots in metro Phoenix by the end of 2015.

“As users’ needs and behaviors continue to change over time, especially with the explosive growth of smart phones, tablets and other connected devices, Cox’s launch of a WiFi network, makes Phoenix a more attractive, livable, high-tech city,” said Councilman Bill Gates, Chair of the City’s Finance, Efficiency, Economy, and Sustainability Subcommittee. The Cox WiFi launch comes on the heels of the company’s announcement that residential gigabit internet speeds are now available in the Phoenix Metropolitan area,-Cox first market in the country to offer residential Gig service — offering consumers speeds 100 times faster than the average speed in the market today.

“In addition to the incredible speeds Cox offers in the home, our customers want access to reliable high speed Internet wherever they are,” said Susan Anable, VP of Public Affairs, Cox Southwest Region. “Cox has invested more than $3 billion in Arizona communities through infrastructure upgrades since 1996. This investment has readied us to take the step of offering hotspots all over the Valley, so our customers can access the Internet not just within the walls of their home, but to the corners of their community.”

In addition, Cox customers also have free access to the nation’s largest WiFi network of more than 300,000 cable Wifi hotspots across the country made possible by a collaboration of cable companies across the country, called Cable WiFi, launched in 2013.

“The addition of Cox WiFi hotspots throughout the Phoenix Metro area that link us to this nationwide network of Internet accessibility, is great not only for our residents, but for economic development and tourism,” said Gates.

Cox customers who are looking for WiFi access can go to www.cox.com/hotspots and enter their current location to find nearby hotspots. Users can also click on a WiFi icon on the map or download the Cox Connect app for iPhone and Android devices and immediately access directions to or from the specific WiFi hotspot address. Once a user has logged into a Cox WiFi or CableWiFi hotspot, his or her wireless device will automatically recognize and logon to other Cox WiFi and CableWiFi hotspots for up to two years.
