Is Spectrum Internet good?

On Spectrum’s three Internet plans, you’ll get great features like download speeds of up to 1 Gbps** (wireless speeds may vary). Plus, Spectrum has no data caps, a FREE Internet modem for easy installation, and no-contract flexibility if you ever need to change your internet service provider (ISP).

When you get into the fine print, Spectrum’s higher starting prices and price increases after 12 months aren’t great for customers. But strictly on performance, Spectrum’s fast broadband Internet speeds and add-ons like its free modem make it a competitive option if you’re in a mid-sized or large household.

Spectrum Internet pros and cons

Pros

Spectrum Internet features

Spectrum Out-of-Home WiFi

If your home ever has an internet outage right before a big video call, or if you’re out running errands and don’t want to burn through your smartphone’s mobile data cap, you can jump onto Spectrum’s WiFi hotspot network to get back online.

Spectrum Internet subscribers get free access to Spectrum’s out-of-home WiFi nationwide, which includes WiFi internet networks at local businesses. The access point network is available across 41 states in cities including San Francisco, Denver, and New York City.

No contracts

Once you sign the dotted line at most ISPs, it’ll usually take a giant fee or more maneuvering than an Ocean’s Eleven heist to break your contract.

Spectrum doesn’t have Internet contracts, so you won’t be required to stay with the ISP for a full year. Without contracts, you’ll have the flexibility to sign up for Spectrum even if you need the internet for only a few months, and then you can cancel without any early termination fees.

If you’re locked in an internet or TV contract with another provider, Spectrum will help buyout your contract up to $500 through their Contract Buyout Program. To qualify for the promotion, you’ll just need to sign up for a qualifying Spectrum bundle.

No data caps

Between streaming video services like Hulu and devices like smart home cameras, it’s easier than ever to use up more internet data than you’d expect.

Spectrum has no data caps, so your household can use the internet without having to keep an eye on Spectrum’s data meter. Many ISPs have a monthly 1 TB data cap and will charge subscribers overage fees if they exceed this limit. But with Spectrum, you won’t have to worry about paying extra if you have kids streaming Paw Patrol every day.

Spectrum high-speed Internet plans

The Spectrum Internet package is Spectrum’s entry-level offering with a maximum download speed of up to 200 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary). Depending on your location, the Spectrum Internet package may be available only with up to 100 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary). The package isn’t the best value, since competing ISPs frequently offer better internet speeds at the same price point. Still, the package can be a potential fit if your home uses the internet only to check emails or occasionally watch streaming video.

Spectrum Internet Ultra offers faster performance with maximum download speeds of up to 400 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary). As with the Spectrum Internet package, Spectrum Internet Ultra may have an up to 300 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary) maximum download speed depending on your address. With this package, your internet connections will remain just as fast even if you have kids or housemates who regularly stream TV shows or game online.

Spectrum’s top-tier Internet Gig package comes with maximum download speeds of up to 1 Gbps** (wireless speeds may vary). With Spectrum Internet service, your internet performance won’t collapse if your household has multiple people who regularly stream 4K video, download large files, and take lengthy video calls.

On all three speed tiers, your monthly price will increase by $25 once Spectrum’s one-year promotional rate ends. Even though a lot of ISPs have similar fine print, we’re still not fans of the one-year price hike. We recommend marking down your promo price end date to make sure you’re not surprised, or try negotiating with Spectrum to bring your price back down.

Spectrum Internet for gaming

Gamers, you won’t have to worry about lag making you lose a round of Overwatch when you’re on Spectrum.

Spectrum’s plans have maximum download speeds that easily accommodate online gaming. The Federal Communications Commission recommends a minimum download speed of up to 25 Mbps if you’re part of a typical four- or five-person household. With plans that start at up to 200 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary), Spectrum can handle your gaming sessions plus everyone’s web browsing or video watching.

But if you’re a frequent online gamer, your download speed isn’t the only factor behind a smooth or jittery online gaming session. Check out our online gaming guide to learn how to optimize your internet connection before the next Madden or League of Legends night with your friends.

Spectrum modems and wireless routers

All of Spectrum’s Internet plans include a FREE Internet modem, but because nothing’s totally free in life, Spectrum also offers a WiFi router rental for $5 per month. If you want to wirelessly connect devices to the internet, you’ll need a router to convert the signal into a WiFi connection.

For new subscribers, Spectrum’s FREE modem is a nice convenience and removes one more thing you have to buy from the electronics store. But you’ll have to return the modem once you end Spectrum Internet service.

If you’re going to stick with Spectrum for the long haul, we’d recommend springing for your own wireless router and modem or a combo WiFi router/modem. By buying your own router, you won’t have to pay unnecessary rental fees that can add up, and you can get models with faster wireless speeds than Spectrum would offer you. If you get your own modem, you can also keep it if you ever change cable internet ISPs down the road.

Check out our guides for Spectrum-compatible modems and wireless routers to see our hardware picks.

Parental controls

To keep your kids safe on the internet, Spectrum offers subscribers a free Security Suite application for Windows and Apple computers. With Security Suite, you can block sites based on their content, filter adult sites from search results, set computer and web browsing time limits, and track your kids’ online activity.

On Spectrum’s email service (which is different from services like Gmail and Yahoo Mail), you can block emails from specific people or websites.

Final take

Between its starting prices and price hikes after a year, Spectrum isn’t the cheapest internet option on the market. But at the same time, you’ll be getting a bunch of benefits like no-contract agreements, no data caps, a FREE Internet modem, and access to Spectrum’s Out-of-Home WiFi network.

You’ll definitely be paying for all of these features, but Spectrum Internet will work well for your household if performance is more important to you than your monthly bill.
