Spectrum is all right if you only need its service for one year or two depending on the offer you choose. Afterwards, get ready to see your bill go up almost monthly. Mine has gone from around $99 (bundled with BASIC TV-no premium anything) to a whapping $220. Their game is all the FEES attached to your bill (which go up randomly, to include a ridiculous fee for their cable box use). As others have already said, speeds are not 100% reliable, especially around peak times. Sadly, theirs is still a best option locally (when you consider other competitors). As for their customer service, is there such thing? Ting will be the next best thing in my area when it becomes available (Wake Forest, NC).

I thought i could stay with Spectrum for a while, but that changed real quick. My bill has risen 75% Since June 2022 and that's just for the lowest internet and TV they offer. That's just sick!!!! I get a $30 federal assistance per month but that's not enough to cover the $175+ bill. Spectrum is just another greedy corporation 🙁

The worst experience with a provider. Since the second day, the internet hasn’t been working. After the install, they are least interested in helping out since they are billing you nevertheless. I do admit the speed (when working) is decent. Customer service needs a lot of work! Poor service overall
