It’s amazing how quickly technology evolves. It’s projected that the average household will have 50 internet-enabled devices by the year 2020. Once limited to the imagination, consumer demand is now strong for home automation features and smart appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. The rapid increase in internet-enabled devices and new technology continues to make our lives easier and helps businesses run more efficiently. But how? The backbone of technological advancement is a strong infrastructure. With gigabit internet speeds in Oklahoma City, Cox Communications is enabling smarter homes and businesses by delivering ultra-fast speeds through- out the community.
