Spectrum last week Wednesday announced the launch of Spectrum Internet and the full suite of Spectrum services for residential customers and small business clients in the Village of Fairwater, following the completion of a more than $434,000 network upgrade.
As part of Wisconsin’s Broadband Expansion Grant Program, Spectrum was awarded nearly $76,000 in funds to expand services to more than 180 homes in the Village of Fairwater. Spectrum made a significant private investment into the project, according to a press release.
Spectrum’s high-bandwidth, low-latency network means local residents now have access to gigabit connections with Spectrum Internet, which includes starting internet speeds of 100 Mbps with no modem fees, data caps or contract, the press release said.
Spectrum Internet Ultra, which features download speeds up to 400 Mbps, is also available to residential customers. For small and medium-sized businesses, Spectrum Business offers gigabit connections, with starting speeds of 200 Mbps and a 600 Mbps option, per the release.
“We have a consistent track record of investing in our network to provide high-value broadband, TV, mobile and voice services,” said Melissa Morris, Spectrum Area Vice President. “We are now delivering superior connectivity to residents and businesses in the Village of Fairwater at highly competitive prices, backed by an organization committed to craftsmanship and service.”
The new Spectrum TV brings extensive programming lineups to the area, with more than 200 HD channels and a two-way, fully interactive network providing access to 85,000 movies and shows.
Spectrum TV customers can also download the award-winning Spectrum TV App, which allows users to stream content across a growing number of platforms, including iOS and Android phones and tablets, Xbox, Kindle Fire, Samsung Smart TVs, Apple TV 4K, Google Chromecast and PCs.
Spectrum TV customers also have exclusive access to Spectrum Originals, a premier destination for premium original series, available on-demand and ad-free, the release noted.
Spectrum Mobile is available exclusively to Spectrum Internet customers. Combining the fastest overall speeds with the best devices and a choice of Unlimited or By the Gig data plans, Spectrum Mobile provides customers the highest-quality experience at great value, including access to nationwide 5G, according to the press release. Customers can bring their own phone or choose from among the latest mobile devices and accessories.
Home phone service through Spectrum Voice provides unlimited calling in the U.S, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico; up to 28 popular calling features, including Call Guard, which helps block unwanted robocalls; and no added phone taxes or fees. Consumers can learn more about Spectrum services at www.spectrum.com, the release said.
