About Spectrum

Spectrum is the largest cable internet provider in the US.* Its core network is fiber, but it delivers internet to homes and businesses through existing cable TV lines. Spectrum doesn’t have the symmetrical speeds of fiber-to-the-home connections, but there’s enough speed between its three plans to meet the needs of every home.

Why choose Spectrum for internet service?

Spectrum typically resides in areas where other cable internet providers do not, so it’s ideal if you don’t have access to fiber and want faster speeds than DSL. Spectrum streamlines your choices and throws in a rent-free modem to boot. The Internet Gig plan even has the fastest upload speed for cable internet, reaching up to 500 Mbps in limited areas. Take that, fiber.

Pros:

  • Wide availability
  • Affordable gigabit plan
  • No contracts
  • No data caps
  • Rent-free modem or gateway

Cons:

  • Price hikes after 12 months
  • WiFi and WiFi Pod fees
  • No fiber

How does Spectrum compare against competitors?

Spectrum’s biggest competitors are AT&T, Verizon, and Frontier, which all provide both fiber and DSL internet in areas overlapping Spectrum’s cable internet service areas. Spectrum is more expensive than the competition, even with its initial discounted pricing. For example, AT&T’s Internet 1000 plan costs $80 per month, while Spectrum’s Internet Gig plan starts at $89.99 per month and increases to $114.99 per month by the third year of service.

FAQ about Spectrum

What does “wireless speeds may vary” mean?

Spectrum uses the “wireless speeds may vary” disclaimer because WiFi fluctuates. You can see 600 Mbps in one second and 550 Mbps in another in just one sitting. WiFi uses radio waves, after all, so interference plays a big part in your wireless speed. A neighbor’s WiFi, nearby radar, the building’s structure, other wireless devices, the time of day, an active microwave, and software issues are just a handful of factors that can affect your WiFi speed.

You can take steps to alleviate some of the interference, but you’ll never see the consistent speeds of a wired connection when using WiFi.

Why does Spectrum state “up to” next to its speeds?

Spectrum uses the “up to” disclaimer because speeds vary by location. The base Spectrum Internet plan, for example, has a maximum speed of 100 Mbps in some areas and 200 Mbps in other areas. Its Internet Gig plan has a maximum upload speed of 500 Mbps in some areas and 35 Mbps in others.

Speeds also depend on the local infrastructure. Hardware issues may lie between your connection and Spectrum’s local control center (headend), which distributes internet and TV through the area. Spectrum is still working on updating the local infrastructure, so speeds may be slower in rural areas than speeds experienced in a nearby town.

What happened to Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks?

Charter Communications acquired Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks in 2016.

Charter Communications uses the Spectrum brand for its internet, phone, and TV services. Spectrum Internet consists of cable networks previously used by Charter Cable, Time Warner Cable, and Bright House Networks. Spectrum Mobile utilizes Charter’s cable internet infrastructure and Verizon’s 4G and 5G networks.

Customers on legacy plans from Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks must manually switch to a Spectrum Internet plan to discontinue the monthly gateway or modem lease.
