Learn how to access and use the Data Usage Meter to see your monthly data plan and usage.


Cox offers a Data Usage Meter to Cox High Speed Internet customers that provides an easy way to check your monthly household Internet data usage at any time. Data usage is the amount of data, such as images, movies, photos, videos, and other files, that you send, receive, download, or upload each month. Cox measures total data usage and does not monitor specific customer activities to determine data usage. To learn more about data usage, visit www.cox.com/datausage.

Note: Gigablast usage does not currently display in the Data Usage Meter.

You can also access your Data Usage Meter from the Cox Connect app. See Checking Your Data Usage with Cox Connect for more information.

  1. In a web browser, go to www.cox.com, then click Sign In My Account.
  2. Under the MyTools column, click Data Usage Meter.
