Spectrum internet review

Spectrum offers speeds up to 940 Mbps, with some of their most popular mid-range plans providing up to 200 Mbps starting at $49.99/mo.* Maximum Spectrum speeds can vary based on your location, so ask about the speed tiers available at your home when inquiring about internet service.

What Spectrum speed do you need?

To decide what speed you need, consider what you are using the internet for and how many devices are connected at one time in your home. Are you using the internet for web browsing and email, remote learning or online gaming

We recommend Spectrum Internet or the Spectrum Internet Ultra plan for households with under eight devices, or two to four simultaneous users. Multi-device households with more than five people connected at once may want to opt for Spectrum Internet Gig, where available.

Spectrum equipment, installation and features

Spectrum has several features that are hard to find with other cable internet providers, such as no data caps, no contracts and money-saving self-installation options. Professional internet installation can run you an extra one-time fee of $49.99. However, Spectrum offers free installation on many double- or triple-play bundles.

Spectrum packages come with a modem. There is a monthly rental fee of $9.99 for a Spectrum Wi-Fi router, but you also have the option to provide your own compatible router.

Spectrum Wi-Fi hotspots

If you need to use secure Wi-Fi when you’re on the go, you’re in luck. Spectrum Wi-Fi hotspots are available coast-to-coast at over 500,000 locations, and come with secure sign-in and authentication to boost your public Wi-Fi security

Spectrum contracts and fees

Spectrum customer reviews tout the flexibility of Spectrum’s no-contract plans. Internet and TV plans still come with a promotional period that determines how long the monthly rate will remain the same. If you are in a contract with another provider, Spectrum offers a buyout program for customers who are switching internet providers, available in select areas.   

Wondering what other fees you might encounter on your Spectrum bill? Since there are no contracts, you will never be responsible for an early termination fee, however, if you cancel your service mid-month, you will be responsible for the remainder of that billing cycle.

Spectrum offers three internet plans with speeds ranging from 60 to 940 Mbps, with prices starting at $49.99/mo.* Take a look at all the Spectrum internet prices and plans below.
