Share Article:

Spectrum continues to double the starting download speed of Spectrum Internet® from 100 to 200 Mbps, expanding the faster speed to nearly 6 million homes in 17 additional markets. The faster 200 Mbps speeds are available now to new Spectrum Internet customers, and the company will automatically increase speeds for current residential customers with Spectrum Internet packages in the coming weeks.

For customers who want even faster speeds, Spectrum Internet Ultra includes download speeds up to 400 Mbps, while Spectrum Internet Gig offers a gigabit connection to the customer’s home. Upon completion, starting speeds of 200 Mbps will be available to nearly 85 percent of the company’s 41-state service area, including these markets:

Cleveland; Columbia, S.C.; Columbus, Ga.; Columbus, Ohio; Corpus Christi, Texas; Dothan, Ala.; El Paso, Texas; Eugene, Ore.; Evansville, Ind.; Greensboro, N.C.; Houston; Huntsville, Ala.; Montgomery, Ala.; Myrtle Beach, S.C.; Seattle-Tacoma, Wash.; Terre Haute, Ind.; and Waco, Texas.

“Fast, reliable connectivity is more important than ever,” said Carl Leuschner, Senior Vice President, Internet & Voice Products at Charter Communications, Inc., which offers services under the Spectrum brand, “and we are delivering Spectrum Internet customers even more speed for streaming, remote work, distance learning and staying in touch with family and friends — with no modem fees, data caps or contracts.”

Free Service With In-Home WiFi Available for Eligible Customers

New customers may be eligible for Spectrum’s Remote Education Offer, which provides free Spectrum Internet and in-home WiFi for 60 days. To enroll, new customers with K-12th graders, college students and/or educators can call 1-844-310-1198. A free self-installation kit is provided to eligible customers.

A small percentage of current Spectrum Internet customers will need a new modem — available at no additional charge — to receive the faster speeds. Spectrum will contact customers who need a new modem with details on how to receive an upgraded device.

In December, Spectrum announced that it had doubled internet starting speeds in 17 additional markets.
