Cox when power goes out.

During a power outage, does Cox signal still come to the home?  I’m considering a generator and I’m curious if i could still have internet / wifi during an outage, or if Cox loses its signal in the neighborhood when power goes out.

    It depends on how widespread the outage is, but if you're only experiencing a local outage in your neighborhood, then yes, you could have Internet if you had power.  A battery backup provides temporary power that allows Internet access until shutdown occurs.  If you had a generator, you could have continued Internet access during the local outage.
