Spectrum has launched Spectrum Internet, Mobile, TV and Voice services to more than 200 homes and small businesses in Orange County, North Carolina.
Spectrum’s newly constructed fiber-optic network buildout in Orange County is part of the company’s approximately $5 billion investment in unserved rural communities, which includes more than $1 billion won in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) RDOF auction. The company’s RDOF expansion will provide broadband access to approximately 1 million customer locations as estimated by the FCC across 24 states in the coming years.
“Through RDOF, Spectrum is making a multiyear investment to extend gigabit broadband networks to unserved communities across America,” said Jonathan Holt, Vice President of Construction at Spectrum. “Our commitment is making it possible to deliver the high-value broadband, mobile, TV and voice services now available in Orange County. We are providing superior connectivity to local residents and small businesses at highly competitive prices, backed by an organization committed to craftsmanship and service.”
Broadband Speeds up to 1 Gbps, Plus Money-Saving Mobile Options and 85,000 On Demand Choices
Spectrum offers customers a best-in-class suite of products, highlighted by Spectrum Internet plans with speeds up to 1 Gbps for both residential customers and small business clients, starting speeds of 300 Mbps and no modem fees, data caps or contracts. Spectrum Business Internet offers download speeds of 300 Mbps, 600 Mbps and 1 Gbps.
Spectrum Internet has been consecutively ranked as one of the best internet service providers by U.S. News & World Report, and also earned the highest rating among the Best Internet Service Providers for Rural Areas. Spectrum Internet also exceeded advertised download and upload speeds for all tiers measured — even during peak weeknight usage between 7 and 11 p.m. — according to the FCC’s most recent “Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report” issued in December 2021.
“I have been a longtime supporter of universal, accessible, and affordable broadband for everyone, and Spectrum’s announcement today brings us closer to closing the digital divide in our rural areas,” said state Sen. Graig Meyer. “Additionally, I’m excited that the federal Affordable Connectivity Program is available to qualifying families who sign up for Spectrum’s internet, helping make internet affordable for everyone.”
Spectrum was also a day one participant in the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which makes quality, high-speed internet service available at a low — or even at no — cost to eligible families in financial need. All Spectrum Internet plans are eligible for ACP credits.
Along with multiple broadband options, Spectrum services will also include Spectrum TV® and Spectrum Mobile™.
