Charter adds 7 DOCSIS 3.1 gigabit markets

December 20, 2017

Charter Communications has launched its Spectrum Internet Gig in seven additional markets, using DOCSIS 3.1 technology to provide 1 Gbps Internet services. The company is also doubling its minimum Internet speeds in those markets to 200 Mbps at no additional cost to new and existing Spectrum Internet customers.

Priced at $104.99 a month for new customers, Spectrum Internet Gig is now available to more than 8.8 million consumers in Austin, TX; Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, NC; Cincinnati; Honolulu; Kansas City, MO; New York City; and San Antonio. Charter plans to launch the service in additional markets next year. The company first deployed DOCSIS 3.1-based gigabit service on Oahu earlier this month.

"Charter's state-of-the-art, fiber-rich network is superior in its ability to deliver fast and reliable Internet to millions of consumers across the country," said Tom Rutledge, Charter chairman and CEO. "As technology continues to evolve, the products and services of tomorrow will increasingly rely on faster broadband connections. Charter's world-class network is best-positioned to deliver the bandwidth and capacity needed to meet these growing demands."

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.
