While cable MSOs are establishing themselves as a credible business services threat, it's clear that when it comes to Ethernet services Cox Business has separated itself from the pack.
Proof of its leadership came recently when Cox once again was featured on Vertical Systems Group's U.S. Business Ethernet Leaderboard, trailing two RBOCs (AT&T and Verizon) and one competitive provider (tw telecom). VSG's Rick Malone argues that what has set Cox apart from other cable MSOs offering Ethernet services is that they have complemented their Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) over Ethernet service with a set of Ethernet-based private line services.
Cox attributes the success of its Ethernet service set with vertical market business segments (education, government and healthcare) to a delivery approach that combines its local presence with its sizable Hybrid Fiber Coax (HFC) and fiber network footprint.
