Cox Communications is doubling Internet speeds for about 75 percent of its customers across Louisiana this week.

Cox Communications says it’s doubling Internet speeds for about 75 percent of customers across Louisiana this week.

On Tuesday, the changes went into effect in New Orleans. Wednesday they will be rolled out to Baton Rouge and Acadiana.

A company spokesperson tells NOLA.com/The Times Picayune the higher speeds will not come with a higher bill. Prices for service will stay the same.

The speed increase affects the cable company’s most popular internet packages: the High Speed Internet Preferred service will increase from 25 megabits per second to 50 megabits per second.

The High Speed Internet Premier tier will increase from 50 megabits to 100 megabits per second.
