Cox Cable Adds Additional Wireless Hotspots in San Diego Area

Cox Cable customers in San Diego are now able to enjoy even more of the high speed service they enjoy in their home, out and about in the city. Cox recently rolled out 250 new Wi-Fi hot spots in the San Diego area, turning on locations in Imperial Beach, Chula Vista, North Park, Hillcrest, Point Loma, Ocean Beach and National City as well as the Cox Cable stores in the county.

Cox Cable customers who have the Preferred package, Premier package, or the Ultimate Internet service package will have free access to all Cox Cable Wi-Fi hot spots.

“That is the majority of our customers,” Cox spokeswoman Ceanne Guerra said in a press release. “Basically 75 percent of our customers have one of those levels of service.”

Those customers who do not have the Preferred, Premier or Ultimate package will not be able to access the hot spots for free, but can add an additional package to their current service or upgrade to one of the eligible services that has free access. Customers with the Cox Essential Internet service will get free access to the service for a limited amount of time to try it out.

“We have about a one-hour trial,” Guerra said. “They will be able to test it even if they are not Cox customers.”

There are over 300,000 Wi-Fi hot spots across the United States that Cox customers can enjoy free of charge as long as they have one of the corresponding internet service packages that it is included. Cox has also recently rolled out Wi-Fi hot spots in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Connecticut, Virginia and Idaho.

The Cox Wi-Fi hot spots offer high speed access to Cox Cable customers with certain packages free of charge, with speeds up to 15Mbps so they can enjoy high speed access wherever they are.

3 Tips to Save Money on Cable Internet

Cable Internet modem and router

With everyone having smart phones now and seemingly everyone having home computers with internet access, finding the right high speed internet service can be a hassle. If you’re not sure what to get as far as speed or package wise, you can quickly find yourself spending way more money that you ever expected. You may not need that 50Mbps down speeds because all you do is check e-mail and read the news. It’s critical to make sure you’re not wasting money for what you don’t need.

Here are three tips for saving money on your high speed internet services.

1. Bundle together your home services. Many high speed internet providers now offer bundle packages so you can group together your services. If you also have phone and television service, most companies can offer a package deal that will save you money on your monthly bill. Often this will give you the best bang for your buck.

2. Change your cable providers. If you’re not bound by a cancellation fee consider changing who your internet provider is. Often times you can get yourself a good introductory deal for high speed internet that will last for 12 months before you’re back to the rate you were likely paying for previously. Even if you’re in a contract and have a penalty for leaving early, you can still in the long run save money.

3. Threaten to cancel and negotiate your bill. If you can’t get out of a provider contract, sometimes you can threaten to cancel your services and they will send you to customer retention services. Often, you can talk your way into getting whatever promotions are currently going on and will save money on your bill. Be prepared for a hassle though, because these aren’t easy to get.

Sprint and Dish Network Reach Deal to deliver Home Internet

DISH CEO Charlie Ergen

Back in April 2013 Dish Network offered up a $25.5 Billion bid to buy out Sprint that they thought was so wrapped up it even had a site setup (not up anymore, obviously!). Ultimately the deal fell through but the two have now worked out a deal to deliver home internet via a fixed wireless technology. Really this is just a repackaging of Clearwire’s wireless spectrum, which was bought out by Sprint back in July 2013.

The technology will ultimately aim to compete with growing satellite internet options in rural America where inadequate high speed options are the norm.
