Charter Communications (NASDAQ:CHTR) announced the full market launch of Spectrum Mobile for new and existing Spectrum Internet subscribers across its footprint. The company completed a soft launch in July.

Spectrum Mobile is built on Verizon's (NYSE:VZ) LTE cellular network and is combined with a nationwide network of Spectrum WiFi hotspots.

"As an intelligent connectivity provider, Spectrum Mobile brings unprecedented flexibility and value to the wireless marketplace," said Danny Bowman, chief mobile officer for Charter. "Spectrum Mobile gives customers the freedom to use their favorite devices the way they want, saving them hundreds of dollars annually off their mobile bill, all while reaping the benefits of Charter's superior, value rich network and services."

Customers can choose from Unlimited data, priced at $45/month starting with the first line, or By the Gig for $14/Gig, shared across all lines. Additional features include the ability to change rate plans any time at no additional cost and several mobile devices with interest-free monthly installment plans.

Charter plans to expand its device options and offer customers the ability to bring their own devices later this year.
