One Big Happy? Family

Cox has announced that it is combining its New Orleans operations with "Greater Louisiana" Market — Greater Louisiana is made up of the former Baton Rouge and Lafayette divisions which were combined three years ago.

The new division has half a million customers and will be Cox's 3rd largest market.

But Cox the spokesperson is careful to note:
Ann Ruble said the move would not affect rates.
Now that might sound reassuring. But what it means at the current moment is that Baton Rouge and New Orleans should not expect to share in Lafayette's good fortune with a cheaper, installation-cost-optional version of Cox's only-in-Lafayette 50/5 mbps ultimate tier.
