Usage Over Your Data Plan

If you exceed your data plan, your service is not interrupted except in the rare cases of excessive usage. In those extremely rare situations, Cox may suspend service after attempting to resolve the issue. See the Cox Online Privacy Policy and related terms and agreements for additional information.

What time period does my data plan cover?

Your data plan is based on a monthly usage cycle, and aligns closely to the start and end dates of your bill cycle. Usage cycle dates specific to your account are displayed on your Data Usage Meter.

How can I increase my data plan?

In the service areas where Data Usage Billing has been implemented, Cox offers additional data plans options, including an Unlimited data plan, if you need more than the 1.25 TB per month included in most Internet packages.
