For Cox Senior Vice President and Region Manager Anthony Pope, “smart city” isn’t just a tech buzzword—it’s a phrase that promises new and exciting ways to use physical and digital infrastructure to bring together people and places and to improve the health and well-being of residents while enabling commercial growth.

“To create a smart city and region, municipalities, schools, community partners and businesses must work together,” Pope said. Cox is already working to deliver the cutting-edge technologies of tomorrow. By the end of this year, Cox’s 1 gig residential internet service (G1GABLAST) will be available for 85 percent of the Metropolitan New Orleans service area. And Cox won’t stop there—they’ve pledged to make G1GABLAST available to all residential customers.

This work is part of a commitment by Cox to continue to serve as the leader in providing broadband services to the region. The company plans to invest $10 billion over the next five years, with a focus on enhancing and refining customers’ experiences both inside the outside the home.

“This means continuously upgrading our Louisiana infrastructure and delivering the best in voice, video, high-speed internet and home security and automation services to homes and businesses,” said Pope.

The plan includes continued growth from Cox Media, a full-service provider of multiscreen advertising solutions to clients across Louisiana and Cox Business, which provides superfast internet speeds of up to 100 gigabits, to commercial clients. Cox Business’ commitment to speed for any size of business, coupled with their cutting-edge technology and business-class support, reflects its dedication to enhancing commercial development in the Metropolitan New Orleans area.
With Cox’s commercial and residential drive, next year promises truly amazing, smarter possibilities.
