Learn about the Cox Service Protection Plan and how this service can benefit you.
The Cox Service Protection Plan
The Cox Service Protection Plan (CSPP) is a comprehensive wire repair, education, and isolation plan offered by Cox.
- The plan may reduce or eliminate the cost of fixing or replacing certain home wiring from the demarcation point to your TVs, high-speed Internet modem, and telephones connected to Cox service. The demarcation point is the wall jack or outlet where the Cox service enters your home.
- The plan also offers consultation with a Cox representative to help identify system components that may be contributing to a problem with a Cox service, regardless of whether the components were provided by Cox or not.
The following wiring, education, and issue isolation services are included under CSPP.
- Internal wiring
- This includes maintenance of all coax cable and telephone internal wiring running from the outside of the home to the back of any TV, cable box receiver, modem, or telephone jack.
- For apartment residents, internal wiring runs from the wall jack / outlet to the customer premise equipment. Cutting and replacing drywall is not included.
- Drilling or threading new tunnels in the walls for running cable or wire is not included.
