Maximizing Your Speed

The more speed, the better. There are lots of ways to super-charge your speed at no extra cost.

Maximizing Your Cox High Speed Internet

For example, 50 Mbps Internet speeds can:

  • Download 5 MP3 songs in 3 seconds
  • Upload 30 photos in 20 seconds
  • Upload a video up to 35 MB in less than 30 seconds
  • Download a full movie in about 2 minutes
