Cox Communications has completed the rollout of its Panoramic Wi-Fi service across its national footprint, with deployments in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Tucson.

Launched in fall 2016, the service was already available in markets including San Diego, Oklahoma City, Tulsa and many other locales within Cox’s 18-state footprint. 

Panoramic Wi-Fi includes a next-generation wireless modem and router (DOCSIS 3.0/dual band/802.11ac), the network management app My Wi-Fi, and customized Wi-Fi installation to prevent dead zones within residences. Cox launched the service ahead of Comcast’s rollout of optimized Wi-Fi earlier this year.
