Member News: Charter Raises Starting Speeds to 200 MBPS in Additional Ohio Markets

On March 8, Charter Communications announced the starting speed of its flagship Spectrum Internet service is now 200 Mbps in an additional 37 markets, three of which are in Ohio. These faster starting speeds compliment its Spectrum Internet Gig and Spectrum Internet Ultra (400 Mbps) plans, which are available virtually companywide. Beginning March 8, the company is doubling the starting speed to 200 Mbps in markets comprising more than 5 million homes, including the following Ohio communities: 

  • Dayton 
  • Toledo (DMA) 
  • Youngstown 

The faster 200 Mbps minimum speeds are available now to new Spectrum Internet customers throughout the newly launched markets, and the company will automatically increase speeds for current residential customers with Spectrum Internet packages in the coming weeks. 

“Beginning today, we are doubling starting speeds for millions of customers, providing even more speed for streaming, remote work, and staying connected with family and friends – with no modem fees, data caps or contracts,” said Carl Leuschner, Senior Vice President, Internet & Voice Products at Charter. “We look forward to completing the launch of 200 Mbps starting speeds across our entire service area later this year.” 

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the Best Internet Service Provider for Rural Areas in its 2021-22 ratings, 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 FCC’s most recent “Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report” issued in December 2021.
