The Navy Exchange Service Command's Military Moving Center is adding communications products and services through Cox Communications Inc. in Hampton Roads, Va., and San Diego, the company announced.
The moving center, launched in mid-July under a contract with Qcorps Residential Inc., is a Navywide initiative to improve quality of life for military personnel and their families. It's designed to reduce the stress associated with frequent military relocations.
The moving center, which operates at no cost to the Navy, offers services through the Qcorps Resident Connection Service Network, enabling military personnel to order and manage home-related services at a central online location. The center is available to active duty Navy members, plus more than 9 million additional authorized members of the Navy Exchange, including members of other armed services.
Through the moving center, Cox will offer local and long-distance telephone services, digital cable television and high-speed Internet services to about 140,000 military personnel living in the Hampton Roads and San Diego service areas.
"While frequent relocations are a necessary element in maintaining a force capable of far-reaching and complex military operations, we are constantly looking for ways to reduce the associated inconvenience and stress," said Rear Adm. William Maguire, commander of the Navy Exchange Command.
Cox, based in Atlanta, posted 2002 revenue of about $5 billion. The company has approximately 6.5 million customers and is the fourth-largest cable television provider in the United States.
