  • Cox EliteGamer system is not a VPN service. Your network traffic is not tunneled or encrypted. Cox is reselling a third-party service outside of the Cox network. Only specific game network traffic is proxied to the third-party service where the game network traffic is tunneled unencrypted to game servers. All your network traffic, including the proxied gaming network traffic, still flows over the Cox network. Unfortunately, I think the only way to answer your question is to try the service itself. Instead of the Cox rebranded service, you could try the provider directly. From what I understand, the service being rebranded and resold by Cox is WTFast. (

      yea thats kind of what i was asking exactly, is it more of a qos than a vpn. cause i would pay a extra 10 dollars for gamer trafic qos priorty packets, im fine with extortion. or even a minimum garuntee, like i can see how u cant promise 30m up 100% but like how about a never less than like 3.. seriously though, trying to play battle field with ur upload doing 0.50-1.

    Just think of it as a Game Tax:  It just takes and gives nothing.
