Spectrum Launches Faster “Internet Gig” Speeds
Charter Communications, Inc. today announced the launch of Spectrum Internet Gig for residential customers on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi in Kona and Spectrum Business Internet Gig for small and medium-sized business clients on Oʻahu, Maui, Lānaʻi, Molokaʻi and the Big Island.
The service features the deployment of DOCSIS 3.1 internet services delivering a 1 Gbps connection to the home or business.
Company representatives say “Spectrum is fully committed to bringing faster internet speeds to the communities it serves with no modem fees or data caps.” Priced at $104.99 per month for new residential customers, Spectrum Internet Gig is now available to more than 70% of the company’s footprint, and will be available throughout virtually all of Spectrum’s 41-state service area by the end of 2018.
Spectrum Internet Gig is now available for all customers on the Big Island, with Kauaʻi launching the service in the coming months. Charter began offering Spectrum Internet Gig in Hawaiʻi last November on Oʻahu and on Maui, Lānaʻi and Molokaʻi this past April.
“Spectrum’s state-of-the-art, fiber-rich network allows us to deploy dramatically faster broadband speeds, including gigabit connections, broadly and rapidly,” said Tom Rutledge, Charter Communications Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As consumer demands for bandwidth and capacity grow, our world-class network is best-positioned to meet these demands, today and into the future.”
With Spectrum Internet Gig, company representatives say residential customers have access to faster and more powerful internet speeds for streaming video, online gaming, downloading music and more across multiple devices without sacrificing performance.
According to information compiled by the company, Spectrum Internet Gig is offered with no data caps or contracts, includes a modem and free in-home WiFi, and is backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.
Spectrum Business Internet Gig is available to new customers starting at $249.99 per month, which includes a modem, customer WiFi for businesses with public seating or lobby areas, custom domain and email addresses, cloud backup and desktop security software at no additional charge.
