How much does Spectrum internet cost?

Spectrum’s internet plans start as low as $29.99 per month for 100 Mbps download speeds. Spectrum’s faster internet plans go up to around $90 per month for gig speeds, but prices will increase up to $30 per month more after the first 12–24 months.

How Spectrum stacks up on value

We gave Spectrum 3 out of 5 stars on value, meaning that it’s middle-of-the-road on what you get for the money. You’ll get the most for your money with the Spectrum Internet plan, which gives you 300 Mbps download speeds for around $50 per month for the first year. That’s a solid speed that should cover most households for a price well below the national benchmark for similar speeds. If you plan to purchase TV or phone service, Spectrum offers a wide variety of bundles that could help you save some money.

The higher-tier plans give you less value overall, and you’ll want to read the fine print on any plans to avoid price hikes. On the plus side, Spectrum doesn’t require contracts, so you can cancel or try to renegotiate your price when the promo pricing ends.

Spectrum’s equipment is also unusually affordable. There’s no charge at all for the modem, so if you already have a wireless router, you’re all set. If you don’t, you can rent one from Spectrum for just $5 per month—a little lower than some other cable internet providers.

What current Spectrum internet customers are saying about price

We analyzed over 400 reviews from current Spectrum customers, most of whom have been using Spectrum service for multiple years. Sentiments about cost were very evenly split, with many customers citing lower costs as an area where Spectrum could improve and especially calling out their frustration over price increases. On the other side, though, a comparable number of customers called out fair pricing as one of the company’s positives.

Spectrum costs and fees to consider

Spectrum charges quite a few fees that other providers don’t, which can add up over time. The equipment fees are lower than usual, but we wish Spectrum would cut down on some of the installation costs and small additional fees. These types of fees can be a shock when you’re not expecting them, so it helps to be aware ahead of time so you can avoid as many as possible.

Professional installation
Equipment and fees
$5/mo. router rental
Additional fees
$3/mo. for each Wi-Fi extender, $5 to pay over phone, $5 reconnection fee

Spectrum Affordable Connectivity Program

This subsidy is enough to cover the cost of the Spectrum Internet 100 plan. See if you qualify and learn how to sign up on Spectrum’s website.
