Frequently Asked Questions

A good home Internet speed has a starting download speed of 100 Mbps, ideal for households with several users connected on multiple devices at the same time so that you can surf, stream, game and make video calls.

Slow internet speed could be caused by an outdated router or a router placed too far away from your TV or computer. However, if your internet speed is slower than you would like, you can consider a faster speed option, such as Spectrum Internet Ultra or Spectrum Internet Gig.

Internet speed determines what types of activities you can do on the internet. Videos, games and video calls all rely on faster internet speeds.

Good coverage means your device is getting a strong WiFi signal. That strong signal will also deliver as much speed as your device can handle. As you move away from your router, signal strength diminishes, slowing upload/download speeds and reducing coverage. The placement of your router is key to ensuring both coverage and speed for your devices.
