Spectrum

Shelby P | 01-05-2022

I have had an account with spectrum for years. Always on time with payments. I canceled my internet and kept my phone with them. When I went in to get internet again, they told me I owed someone else bill to get mine put back on because I was associated with them. This is absolutely rediculous! I do not understand how this is legal!
