Spectrum Internet Service

As the second largest cable company in terms of revenue, Spectrum Cable currently extends coverage in 29 different states. Comcast, the largest US cable company, attempted to purchase Spectrum Cable in 2014 for $45.2 billion, but eventually called off the deal due to opposition from various interests. Charter Communications proposed a separate deal that would enable it to purchase both Spectrum Cable and Bright House Networks but that deal as of early 2016 hasn't been finalized.

Spectrum Cable originated in 1992 following the merger of Time Inc.'s cable television company and Warner Cable.

Through 2014, Spectrum Cable was available to 14.6 million basic cable subscribers and 8.8 million digital cable subscribers.

In 2011, Spectrum Cable purchased Insight Communications for $3 billion. This increased Spectrum Cable's customer base by 760,000 people.

In 2008 and 2009, Spectrum Cable began testing data metered plans in Texas and New York. Currently they offer rather large data packages and will send an email when a customer is approaching their limit.

Spectrum Reviews

My revue title is the way spectrum gets you

Spectrum charges a fee to start you off at a good rate so they got youn then they raise your monthly $10-$15 per month and when you ask about it they say it is a one time hike your rains will not go up any further so you sign and say okay it was not that much then next year guess what they raise your rates again and you decide that you will ask why they said they would not raise your rates and they say “ oh that person should not have said that to you so they blame the last person you spoke to and say there is nothing you can do so you are stuck or you go to another provider but guess what then other provider does the same thing to you so i ask why do we want to pay such exorbitant prices and i found out that they can charge what ever they want because people want internet !!!!! So until people decide not to have internet they will raise rates as they like and want and keep telling the public that “oh we will not raise your rates any more “but look at next years bill and see the lie they keep telling you just to get customers to be with there company but the sad part is it is not just Spectrum but all the internet providers i have been with 5 and all said the same thing consumer be aware !!!!!
