I was just wondering when or if cox will start supporting the amazon alexa or google home as well as providing 4k content and receivers? Both dish and directv have 4k receivers and offer 4k content so I was wondering why cox hasn't joined in on that yet?
Can't imagine they'll be offering 4K content any time soon. With the current bandwidth limits, all their customers who wanted to watch 4K broadcasting would have to upgrade to at least their Ultimate package and even that would be pretty limiting if you wanted to watch more than a few 4k movies each month, along with everything else. Definitely a case of bandwidth caps stifling innovation.
If broadcasters (ABC, CBS, FOX) offered UHD programming, Cox would provide it via their CATV Distribution System and not as an Internet service. Meaning, no data cap with cable UHDTV. Unless, of course, if you'd be streaming UHD.
Bandwidth limits? Do you need more than 1000 Mbps? Are you waiting for Terablast Internet from Cox? I'm sure you meant Data Limits.
Internet Ultimate? Why would you need 300 Mbps to stream UHD? Or, more precisely, how many devices in your household would be streaming UHD...at one time? Even the greediest recommendation for UHD on 1 device is 25 Mbps. 2 devices 50. 3 devices 75. It would take 4 devices streaming UHD at one time just to reach one-third of 300 Mbps.
All Cox Internet plans cap at 1 TB, so that wouldn't dictate your choice. You need to determine the number of devices that'd be streaming at one time. If you have 1 device, you only need Cox Essential 30. 2 devices could use Preferred. 12 devices would be Ultimate.
Fighting the Data Limit is another story.

AFAIK Cox Gigablast Fiber has no cap as of yet. They don't have the technical systems in place yet to monitor it. +1 for everything else you said though.
Yeah...even if Cox offered it in your area, they have some odd rules to qualify. I want a Connect2Compete price at 100 Mbps with Unlimited!
