View the steps on accessing and using the Data Usage Meter to view your monthly data plan usage.


Cox offers a Data Usage Meter that is available to all Cox High Speed Internet customers and provides an easy way to check total monthly household high-speed Internet data usage at any time. Monthly data usage is the amount of data, such as images, movies, photos, videos, and other files that customers send, receive, download or upload each month. Cox measures total data usage and does not monitor specific customer activities to determine data usage. The Data Usage Meter is only available to Account Holder user accounts and Authorized User accounts with billing access. To learn more about data usage, visit our Learn More page.
