Competition Works: Cox Business Unveils 80-100Mbps Broadband to Compete with LUS in Louisiana

Phillip Dampier September 13, 2012 Broadband Speed, Community Networks, Competition, Cox, LUS Fiber, Public Policy & Gov't 1 Comment

Cox Communications has launched two new broadband tiers for business customers in the Acadiana region around Lafayette, La., offering speeds of  80 and 100Mbps.

With LUS Fiber providing community-owned fiber to the premises symmetrical broadband in the area, Cox Cable has been at a speed disadvantage, but hopes it is now better positioned to attract and keep commercial customers in southern Louisiana. LUS Fiber offers business customers speeds of 10/10, 50/50, or 100/100Mbps.

Cox’s new speeds, made possible with DOCSIS 3.0, are part of a $12 million upgrade the cable operator has underway in the state. Acadiana is the first Cox market in the country to get the new speeds. Other Cox markets will see upgraded speeds later this year or in early 2013.

    Time for LUS to one-up Cox by pushing their business broadband to 120 Mbps on the high end. Just enough to force Cox to go back to competing on price, which of course they don’t want to do.
