Following up its recent move to an all-digital network, Charter Communications says it is doubling Internet speeds, boosting its high-definition channel lineup and rolling out a new top tier of services for customers in North Carolina and Virginia.
The new suite of digital services,Charter Spectrum, includes a jump in Internet speeds from 30 Mbps to 60 Mbps for most customers at no additional cost. Customers are also gaining access to more than 200 HD video channels and advanced voice service that includes unlimited nationwide calling.
The company’s flagship Internet speeds are now 20 times faster than standard DSL, and the HD channel lineup is the largest available from any video services provider in the market.
“Charter is committed to improving the customer experience,” said Charter President and CEO Tom Rutledge. “That starts by providing the best voice, TV and Internet services possible at the greatest value to our customers. Charter Spectrum represents the best of the best in our industry.”
Charter began its local move to an all-digital network earlier this month as part of $93 million in recent broadband infrastructure investment to its North Carolina operations. In all, the company is investing more than $2 billion in its national network and is committed to moving to an all-digital platform across its entire 29-state footprint by the end of 2014.
By removing older analog signals from its network, Charter is freeing a significant amount of bandwidth that is being used to provide more digital HD channels, faster data speeds and enhanced voice capabilities.
Charter Spectrum Internet plans now start at 60 Mbps, enabling customers to simultaneously stream videos, download music and more without sacrificing Internet performance. Internet modems are provided free of charge.
In addition to more than 200 HD channels, Charter Spectrum TV features instant access to more than 10,000 On Demand choices, including 2,000 HD offerings and 3D movies. The downloadable Charter App enables customers to watch more than 100 live channels on their mobile devices anywhere in their home. Charter customers can also take more than 40 networks on-the-go with their computers and mobile devices.
Charter Spectrum Voice provides unlimited local and long distance calling in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands along with free 411 calls. The service includes voicemail and 13 popular calling features such as call waiting and call forwarding – all without the added fees charged by the phone company.
Charter service requires no long-term contracts and is backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.
