Cox rate increases after receiving federal funds

The first thing Cox did after receiving FREE federal ACP funds (taxpayer dollars) was raise our rates. Why? My service is NO better and I am not receiving any additional services.

STOP the corporate price gauging. You are collecting from taxpayers, then turning around raising rates and overcharging customers. See, what does the Cox CEO make?

The estimated total pay range for a CEO at Cox Communications is $269K–$496K per year, which includes base salary and additional pay.  Although his personal net worth has not been disclosed, the Cox family is worth around $34.5 billion, according to Business Insider.
