Received my bill statement today only to find it had an increased rate from every month I had paid previously. The bill explanation mentioned that it might be different and to check news from Cox or the Bill Messenger Center for details but I can’t find any explanation anywhere. No I’m not on some discount, new customer plan before anyone asks.
Can someone explain this to me or link me to an actual explanation?
I checked my bill and its cost-of-service is the same as my previous.
If you have an increase, it may be due to your state, county or city imposing or increasing a tax, fee or surcharge for Cox to provide service in your state, county or city.

I stand corrected. I just received my bill. I wonder why I got it later than you?

What are the differences between these two? What is a "stream player"?
This was a copy-and-paste. Unless there is a precursor to the Wireless, it's probably the same device. The News From Cox section probably needs an editor or least someone good at making lists of stuff.
