As in the past, the company has declined to say when the wireless service will be expanded to its entire footprint or what its prices and handset lineup will be. And the company has been shifting back the date when it will provide these details. At the end of March, Cox spokesman David Grabert told FierceWireless that "in the next few weeks we're going to see details on rate plans and devices," but declined to provide a specific date. In early May, Cox told consumers who registered on the Cox Wireless website that the public launch would be in the "coming weeks."
Cox plans to deploy its CDMA EV-DO network--via suppliers Starent and Huawei--on its own AWS spectrum, and eventually plans to migrate to LTE via its 700 MHz holdings. The carrier's current wireless efforts rely on Sprint Nextel's (NYSE:S) network, an interim step as the company prepares its own network.
