Spectrum Goes All-Digital, Laying the Foundation for 10G
Charter Communications has gone all-digital across virtually all of its 41-state footprint, helping set the foundation for 10G Internet.
Completing all-digital means immediate benefits for more than 50 million U.S. homes and businesses in our service area: the availability of faster broadband speeds, improved picture and sound, and more HD channels. But make no mistake, its most profound impact lies in providing the framework for 10G™ – 10-gigabit symmetrical broadband speeds — poised to revolutionize the way we live.
Spectrum has converted the remaining 30 percent of former Time Warner Cable systems and half of legacy Bright House Networks properties to all-digital. By deploying two-way Spectrum receivers on analog outlets, Spectrum TV customers benefit immediately from a fully interactive experience on every TV. This includes a full complement of HD channels, tens of thousands of On Demand movies and TV shows, and an easy-to-use program guide, as well as easier self-installation and service upgrades.
All-Digital: Faster Broadband Speeds and a First Step Toward 10G
In many markets, digitizing the channel lineup also made dramatically faster broadband speeds possible. Spectrum Internet® now includes starting speeds of at least 100 Mbps everywhere it is available — with 200 Mbps in 40 percent of Spectrum markets — and gigabit connections through Spectrum Internet Gig.
“We are entering a new age of digital innovation, requiring networks that can deliver high speed, massive capacity and low latency,” said Tom Rutledge, Charter Communications Chairman and CEO. “The cable industry’s 10G platform will be the platform of choice for the innovators who will develop the future technologies and applications that will create and inspire the way we work, live, educate and entertain.”
