The company's Spectrum Internet starting speeds are now doubled in more than 30 markets.

Charter Communications today announced the starting speed of its flagship Spectrum Internet service is now 200 Mbps in all markets, matching the availability of the company’s 400 Mbps and gigabit plans across virtually its entire 41-state service area.

Starting today, the company announced is doubling the starting speed to 200 Mbps in 33 markets comprising nearly 3 million homes, including the following communities:

  • Duluth-Superior, Minn.
  • Kalamazoo, Mich.
  • La Crosse-Eau Claire, Wis.

  • Missoula, Mont.
  • Reno, Nev.
  • Saginaw-Bay City, Mich.

The faster 200 Mbps minimum speeds are available now to new Spectrum Internet customers throughout the newly launched markets. The company said it will automatically increase speeds for current residential customers with Spectrum Internet packages in the coming weeks.

“Beginning today, 200 Mbps is the starting speed of Spectrum Internet in every market we serve,” said Carl Leuschner, SVP, Internet & Voice Products at Charter. “We are doubling starting speeds available to millions of additional homes, providing even more speed for streaming, remote work, and staying connected with family and friends — with no modem fees, data caps or contracts.”

Spectrum Internet customers can also exclusively take advantage of Spectrum Mobile, leveraging the superior performance of Spectrum’s converged mobile broadband network with Unlimited plans starting at $29.99/month for customers with two or more lines and By The Gig options.

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the "Best Internet Service Provider for Rural Areas" in its 2021-22 ratings, Charter noted its Spectrum Internet also exceeded advertised download and upload speeds for all tiers measured — even during peak weeknight usage between 7 and 11 p.m. — according to the FCC’s most recent “Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report” issued in December 2021.
