Spectrum has joined a string of major TV and internet providers to release economic hardship measures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Charter Spectrum has agreed to continue service and forego late fees for residential and small business subscribers. Spectrum will also allow public access to their network of Wi-Fi hotspots around the country for the next 60 days.

Households with K-12 and college students may also receive free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi service. Installation fees will be waived during this period as well.

Ways to track data usage

  • Your router: Some routers do track the amount of data you are using. Use the router’s app or log-in page, and look for a data usage section.
  • Your ISP: Some ISPs provide an app to check on your data and/or a mid-month, opt-in email alert to let you know how much you’ve used to date.
  • Apps: Third-party apps like Glasswire and Data Monitor are available on Google Play and the App Store to monitor data use.
