Spectrum Overview

Spectrum Internet® deals are increasingly a common option across the US, as Charter Communications has been aggressively expanding their “Spectrum” Internet® service area in the past couple of years.

After acquiring Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks in 2016, Charter Communications (Spectrum) became the 2nd largest cable service provider in the US, just behind Comcast. Since then, they’ve expanded high-speed Internet service to millions of homes.

Spectrum has also been working to upgrade their service tiers, and it’s now common to see 200 Mbps instead of 100 Mbps as the base speed for their cheapest internet-only plan. The upgraded speed comes at no extra cost at this time.

Spectrum has the most coverage in California, Texas, New York, and 41 other states. Since merging with Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks, their network footprint covers a population of 102.7 million potential customers across 44 states.

Spectrum is best known for their cable Internet packages, although they also offer TV, phone, Internet-only plans, and business broadband services.

In terms of pricing, Spectrum has straightforward, standardized prices compared to other providers. Spectrum Internet® plans are favored by cord cutters thanks to their unlimited data use and affordable contract-free options. Unlike other cable providers, there is no limit to video streaming, even on the cheapest packages.

How To Compare Spectrum Plans

Here are some general guidelines to keep in mind when comparing Spectrum Internet® deals:

  1. Consider Bundled Services. Oftentimes the price of bundle services is only moderately more expensive than one of the options on their own. Choosing TV and Internet service combined will often save you money — if you watch a lot of TV.
  2. Double Check Spectrum Pricing. While Spectrum is generally straightforward and transparent with their pricing, some of the advertised prices are only applicable to Spectrum TV® bundle deals.
  3. Be Aware of Promotional Rates. Spectrum generally gives new customers a “promotional rate” that disappears after the first year of Internet service. After that, the price commonly raises 10–40%.

Spectrum Internet-Only Packages

Spectrum Package Download Speed Upload speed
Spectrum Internet® 60-200 Mbps 10 Mbps
Spectrum Internet Ultra® 300-400 Mbps 20 Mbps
Spectrum Internet Gig® 940 Mbps 35 Mbps

As you can see in the table above, Spectrum Internet® plans come in three basic flavors: Standard, Ultra, and Gig.

The specific speeds of each Spectrum speed tier varies depending on your location. Specifically, many areas do not yet have access to Ultra or Gig Internet. The best way to check if Ultra or Gig is available at your address is to call and ask a sales rep to check Internet-only speeds in your neighborhood.

Spectrum expanded Gig service to 14 Million households in 2018, and promises to continue expansion in coming years. Even if you aren’t in a Spectrum Internet® “Gig” area, you’re likely to have access to several different tiers of speed at your address.

Spectrum’s entry-level Internet speeds are similar to their cable competitors like Xfinity and Cox (usually 60–100+ Mbps). However, their maximum range of speed tends to be higher than other cable providers. This is because of their aggressive DOCSIS 3.1 network expansion, which has brought gigabit (940 Mbps) download speeds to dozens of cities in the USA like Los Angeles, Rochester, and Dallas.

It can be tempting to opt for the fastest speed, but it’s important to take a look at your internet usage. You can often save a lot of money by going for a lower-tier plan if your usage is “average” rather than “heavy”.

The bad news is that Spectrum internet prices without the bundle are often listed without the final price. Even on the phone, they sometimes won’t tell you the final price since it may vary depending on your service area.

Is Spectrum the same as Time Warner Cable?

Charter Communications bought Time Warner Cable in 2016, and changed the name of former TWC plans to “Spectrum.” If you used to have Time Warner Cable in your town, then Spectrum is now the cable provider available to you.

As mentioned above, the service area of Spectrum covers most of the US. The company has some sort of presence in every state except North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. However, there are some states with only 1 or 2% coverage which basically makes the service unavailable in that area.

It’s important to keep in mind, however, that even the states with a high presence often only have a portion of the full area covered. You can compare Spectrum to other providers in your area here.



The Spectrum Network

There are three main types of modern network technologies: DSL, Cable, and Fiber.

Spectrum primarily uses a cable network, which uses cable TV lines to transmit data. Usually, this will connect to your house from a nearby utility or telephone pole. Cable was previously the gold standard of Internet speeds before it was unseated by newer fiber technology, and it has the potential for some pretty amazing speeds.

Spectrum® Modems and Routers

All Spectrum Internet® deals require two pieces of equipment to get up and running: a modem and a router. The modem translates Internet signal, and the router distributes it as WiFi in your home.

Spectrum includes the modem free on all plans. However, customers of their entry-level “Standard Internet” plan are charged a monthly leasing fee of around ten dollars. Additionally, Standard plans may use “combo” devices that perform both modem and router functionality with a single box.

Unless you’re planning to have the service for a good number of years, we recommend the extra charge each month to use the company’s own equipment. By using their devices, you’ll have access to their customer support, and technicians will know how to troubleshoot their own modems and routers.

If you’re a long-term customer and feel comfortable managing your own hardware, Spectrum maintains a list of compatible third-party routers you can purchase outright. Just be sure to let them know you’re using your own modem, and provide the MAC address so they can switch on service easily.

Spectrum Internet® Installation

New Spectrum customers have two options for installation: technician installation or self-install.

Technician installation is recommended if you are subscribing to TV service since the setup is much more complicated. You should also get a technician installation if you are not comfortable configuring your own WiFi router. There is a small variable free associated with Spectrum installation.

Self-install is recommended if you are a Spectrum Internet-only customer, and you want to save on the installation fee. This is also the fastest way to get set up, and in some cases, they will even activate service same-day if you’re using your own modem.

Charter Merger with Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks

Since their merger with TWC and Bright House, Charter’s residential Internet deals have been branded as “Spectrum” across the board. Currently, all customers have been moved to Spectrum billing and account management.

While investments in local infrastructure have improved speeds in many areas and expanded service coverage dramatically, transitioning to Spectrum pricing has left some customers upset about higher prices. In most cases, this is with customers who had temporarily reduced rates from TWC, which Spectrum was not required to honor.

Spectrum Price-Lock Plans

Spectrum pricing is unique in that they’re one of the few internet providers that doesn’t use contracts. This is great for customers since you can change or cancel service at any time with no charge. In comparison, other cable providers commonly charge upwards of $300 to customers who quit.

Pay Close Attention to the Final Price

Current Spectrum “promotional pricing” and the “final price” you pay after taxes and additional equipment fees can vary quite a bit. This is honestly the biggest problem we’ve found with Spectrum pricing.

As you are evaluating different Spectrum prices and promotional deals, make sure to compare the final price after tax. This will be what you are paying in the long term even if the price you see advertised is lower.

At BroadbandNow we do our best to collect all the fine print so you can understand all the details about your service, but still make sure to read the fine print and verify plan details on the phone or online before signing up.

Customer Reviews of Spectrum Internet® Plans

Most internet providers in the U.S. have low ratings by consumers. In fact, the industry as a whole is one of the lowest rated industries in the US — even worse than airlines.

It’s a tough situation, especially since most consumers don’t have a lot of options in their area. Spectrum also gets hit on pricing, since Spectrum pricing — while stable — is higher than Time Warner Cable at the time of their buyout.

That said, let’s take a look at how Spectrum’s customer ratings stack up against their direct competition as this is the best way to compare two providers in an unbiased fashion. (Remember, reviews on BroadbandNow are from IP-verified customers.)

To date, we’ve asked 65,660 IP-verified Spectrum Internet® plan customers if they would recommend their service to a friend. So far, 50.0% of consumers said they would recommend Spectrum.

Overall, Spectrum’s 50.0% rating is better than the 48.4% average rating across every provider covered by FCC databases and our broadband database on BroadbandNow.

As of 2020, Spectrum’s ACSI rating is 63. For comparison, the ACSI rating of the cable industry overall in 2018 was just 62.

Spectrum Availability

Spectrum is available in most of the US, but the fastest way to find specifics at your address is to check your address directly. For a visual snapshot of Spectrum coverage in the US, you can find our full Spectrum availability map here including data for Spectrum footprints in California, Texas, New York, and 41 other states. In total Spectrum covers 102.7 million people across 44 states.
