Charter Spectrum basically offers 3 Internet-only deals. Which are as follows:
- ‘Spectrum Standard Internet”- The download speed varies from 60-200 Mbps with an upload speed of 10 Mbps, depending on the area. This is fast enough for most users. Customers can stream videos without issue and the speeds are fast enough to support multiple users on the same network.
To place this in solid terms, envision you’re downloading an HD motion picture on iTunes to watch on a journey later. On a Spectrum 100 Mbps connection, downloading the 3GB record will take you a little more than four minutes. Whereas more seasoned DSL connection of just 15 Mbps would abandon you hanging tight for practically 30 minutes.
Spectrum’s Standard charges a month to month renting expense for the WiFi switch. This expense is for the most part around $10/month.
- Spectrum Ultra Internet- The download speed starts from 300-400 Mbps with an upload speed of 20 Mbps depending on the area, Spectrum “Ultra” is their mid-level plan. This is a good pick for large families, power users, subscribers who work from home, and anyone else that needs a little more power for multiple devices.
Spectrum’s Ultra package includes the router and modem for free. On top of that, the modem and router will be higher-end models built to handle the increased bandwidth of Spectrum Ultra plans.
- Spectrum Gig Internet- Spectrum “Gig” is the best deal currently offered in terms of raw speed. The download speed is 940 Mbps with an upload speed of 35 Mbps. The raw price, however, can be steep, once any promotional deals time out it might exceed over $100/month. It’s overkill for the average customer, but if you can afford it, you’ll never have to look at a Netflix buffering icon again.
It’s important to note that Spectrum’s Gig Internet does not have symmetrical speeds. This means that while the download speed is 1,000 Mbps, the upload speed is only 35 Mbps. Customers who need gigabit upload speeds for purposes like uploading files or excessive live-streaming should look for fiber Internet plans from another provider.
As with Ultra, Charter includes a high-end modem and router with this plan for free.
The particular speeds of every Spectrum speed level differ contingent upon your area. In particular, numerous zones don’t yet approach Ultra or Gig Internet. The most ideal approach to check if Ultra or Gig is accessible at your address is to call and request that a business rep check Internet-only speeds in your neighborhood.
Spectrum extended Gig services to 14 Million family units in 2018 and guarantees to proceed with extension in coming years. Regardless of whether you aren’t in a Spectrum “Gig” region, you’re probably going to approach a few unique levels of speed at your location.
