Spectrum Expands Broadband Service Here

An additional 630 Columbus County homes and small businesses will soon have access to Spectrum internet, mobile, television and voice service.

Spectrum’s newly constructed fiber-optic network buildout in Columbus 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 Rural Digital Opportunity Fund 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 Columbus 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.”

Spectrum offers customers a wide array 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— according to the FCC’s most recent “Measuring Broadband America Fixed Broadband Report” issued in December 2021.

“Access to high-speed broadband has never been more important than it is now,” said U.S. Rep. David Rouzer. “The Rural Digital Opportunity Fund (RDOF) and Charter’s continued investment in our community is welcome news and will help end the digital divide and spur economic growth in our small and rural communities.”

“Access to high-speed internet is important to keep our families, farmers, and front-line workers connected and thriving,” added state Rep. Brenden H. Jones. “Spectrum’s network buildout is bringing unparalleled access and connectivity to rural communities in North Carolina’s 46th District.”

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.
