    Jan 21, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good service, clear picture, great channel selection, few problems
    Cons: Digital music channels could use some work

    Summary: I'm absolutely amazed at the number of negative reviews I've read here at Epinions about Cox Cable. Honestly, the service provided by Cox here in Northwest Arkansas has been fantastic. Perhaps, of course, the quality of Cox's cable service varies from ... read more

  • I wouldn't trust what Cox tells you.

    Jul 1, 2013 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: No pros.
    Cons: They keep changing their offers.

    Summary: Two or three times in past years, we received ads from Cox Communications about changing our phone service.  Each time, I wrote down all their information their phone reps gave, and each time I called back, their answers changed, so I just wasted my ... read more

    Pros: Sometimes, the Internet actually works.  As in now, as I am submitting this review.
    Cons: Pretty much everything.

    Summary: TV: Picture freezes like I have not seen before, ever in my life, with any TV company. Incredibly poor quality. Pixelation, black screen, disapperaing sound, picture freezes. Every day. Think about it---every day! Company representatives either reset my ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very FAST Internet (usually)
    Installation man was VERY helpful and knowledgable.
    Cons: Awful telephone support.
    Dishonest.
    Rip you off on bundles.

    Summary: The customer service (other than installation) is terrible. I has gone to the cox store to start my service and I was told there were only two bundles I could get. One was $116/ month with $99 service charges and the other was $137/ month without service ... read more

  • Cox Cable and Internet: The lesser of several evils

    Sep 8, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliable service, slightly more affordable than other options
    Cons: DVR doesn't have much space, billing hasn't always been clear

    Summary: I'm the type of person who just generally doesn't think well of cable/satellite providers. Growing up with a local cable provider and then Dish Network, I've never found dealing with any of them to be a pleasant experience. I feel about the same when it ... read more

    Pros: Internet: Dependable at least at 75% speed.
    Cons: Customer Service Reps (CSR) need more training and widen their scope.

    Summary: One several occasions, I have written e-mails to customer support and have made statements in Live Chat. Nothing happens in Live Chat to fix cox equipment or service issues. They will only see if there's something on a level 1 service that they can ... read more

    Pros: Good cable TV
    Cons: 1. unreliable Internet 2. awful customer service 3. Expensive, with hidden fees

    Summary: My experience using Cox has been a mixed bag, so to speak. When I first started using Cox around 6 years ago, they provided good cable TV, mediocre phone, and very nice Internet, especially compared to dial-up, which I had previously. However,this ... read more

    Cons: They are extremely expensive and dont always have the best customer service.

    Summary:      Our family has used Cox communications for about 8 years now and we have had just about enough of it.  The only reason we have not gotten rid of them sooner is because there is no other cable provider that services this ... read more

    Cons: They promise high speed, powerboot in site and advertisements, but you won't get it

    Cons: Customer service and communication is poor and inconsistent for me.

    Summary: I had a cable/phone/tv installation scheduled with Cox. The agreement was that they would do a free install. Nobody showed up. A week later, Cox innacurately logged that it was a self-install. We call them back and they said they will send someone ... read more
