Cox to Add Five Phone Markets


Cox Communications Inc. said Tuesday that it will bring “Cox Digital Telephone” to five new, unnamed markets in 2005.

The additions will bring the MSO’s total markets served to 22, or 70% of its total footprint, by year-end, Cox said.

The company said it will continue to deploy voice-over-Internet-protocol technology throughout 2005.

Current Cox telephone markets are: Orange County and San Diego, Calif.; Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz.; Omaha, Neb.; Meriden, Conn.; Rhode Island; New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette, La.; Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla.; Wichita, Kan.; west Texas (Lubbock, Amarillo, Midland, Abilene and San Angelo); and Hampton Roads, Roanoke and northern Virginia.
