Cox expanding hotel Wi-Fi service across its footprint

Cox Communications intends to expand its Hospitality Wi-Fi service for hotels across the company's national footprint later this summer. "With a standard Wi-Fi solution across all markets, Cox Business will deliver a consistent and positive experience for hotel customers and their end users using a direct connection from Cox's national fiber optic backbone or Cox's hybrid fiber coaxial (HFC) network," said the cable operator. Cox Business has been offering business-grade Wi-Fi in hotels in a portion of its footprint for several years, including some of the world's largest hotels in Las Vegas. Cox said its hospitality Internet service uses Cisco's Service Provider Wi-Fi solution.
