Rising on the back of its accelerating DOCSIS 3.1 deployments, Cox Communications now offers 1-gig broadband service to 40% of the customers in its footprint, a marked improvement from a year ago.
Making the announcement late Tuesday at CES, where the cableco is providing both wired and wireless broadband services at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Cox Communications Inc. said its gigabit rollout pace will keep picking up now that it's deploying DOCSIS 3.1 over its hybrid fiber-coax (HFC) wires. Previously, the company relied primarily on deploying fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks to new housing developments to offer its "Gigablast" service.
In a provocative new BBWN webinar, Broadband Success Partners' Jack Burton will delve into cable's next-gen HFC architecture plans and explain why going all-fiber may make more sense for operators right now.
