Cox Flattens Business Fees


ATLANTA -Cox Business Services has launched a flat-rate service package aimed at small and midsize business customers.

The package, dubbed the Cox Office Solutions Pak, bundles high-speed data access, two digital business phone lines with four features per line and 100 long-distance minutes per line per month. Rates and installation fees vary depending on whether the customer commits to a one, two or three-year contract, a Cox spokesman said.

In Omaha, Neb., for example, Cox offers the package for $159 per month with a $250 installation fee with a one-year commitment. Under terms of a three-year contract, the installation fee is waived and the monthly charge is $139. The package is also available in San Diego and Orange County, Calif., Phoenix, Hampton Roads, Va., Rhode Island and Southeastern Connecticut.
