That’s not a bad deal necessarily, but it’s not the internet-only price.
Spectrum, Charter Spectrum, and Time Warner Cable are now all the same company: Spectrum.
Charter Spectrum’s free modem doesn’t include Wi-Fi, which means you’re without a wireless connection.
If you already have a Wi-Fi router, then don’t sweat it.
In our case, we were bumped up to a 100 Mbps plan for the same .99-per-month price, but only because we happened to live in the right place.
We don’t like how far off the advertised price is from the actual price, but we think there’s still value to be found here.
Luckily, Charter Spectrum has no modem fee, so if you don’t have a cable modem, by all means, borrow one from Charter Spectrum. Not likely (models aren’t specified), but there’s no cost to you, so why not try it?
It’s part of Charter Spectrum’s contract buyout program, and it’s worth checking out if you’re looking to get out of your current service but don’t want to get hit with cancellation fees. If you’re paying to lease a modem, you might as well be throwing your hard-earned money down the drain (okay, maybe that’s overdramatic).
We had to make some calls and stumble around the Charter Spectrum website for the internet-only price.
Where we tested Charter Spectrum service, the internet-only option was .99 per month.
That’s twelve times the speed Netflix recommends to watch its service in HD (720p), so no need to buffer your way through season two of We usually don’t bring up TV in our internet service recommendations, but we think Charter Spectrum’s bundle special deserves a shoutout.
It’s basically adding Charter Spectrum’s TV to the internet plan we mentioned.
Charter Spectrum’s discount lasts one year, and then the price goes up. We can’t tell you the exact amount of the price increase because it’s not the same for everyone.
