Available only to residential High Speed Internet customers, actively employed LSUHSC employees and/or faculty and actively enrolled LSUHSC students within the Cox New Orleans wired serviceable area.  Not valid in combination with certain offers, including bulk accounts.  The $44.99 monthly service rate reflects a discount of $18/mo. for 24 months, for actively employed LSUHSC employees and/or faculty and actively enrolled LSUHSC students from the $62.99 monthly service rate for High Speed Preferred Internet service.  After 24 months, if Cox customer is still a High Speed Internet Preferred Internet customer and still an active employee/faculty or student actively enrolled at LSUHSC, they must re-apply for their discount.  Discount is discontinued upon termination of active employment/enrollment at LSUHSC.
