I will be soon moving to the Tennessee mountains (Northeast area) in a few months. It seems that Spectrum is the internet source for that area. I have never used Spectrum before so any feedback would be appreciated. Right now, the rates go for about $70 bucks for 500Mbps and about $90 for a Gig and no data caps.
Is this a cable service or a satellite service? Is the service fairly reliable?
I personally have never had issues with Spectrum service, u ised to have both cable and internet woth them. But nownonly have internet service. No issues, been using this service for about 15 years now, i live in a urban area. I hope this helps.
Been using it here for 8 years now. Have the 400mbps package and someone is always on it…Shield Pro, X5, TiVo Stream 4K x2, Roku, Xbox, phones, tablets & CPU’s. The tv’s and Xbox run evening and nights along with phones and no issues with buffering at all
Before I was able to pull the plug I used Spectrum (Formerly Time Warner Cable) for a number of years in Central Texas mainly because there was no other option. This is cable service with internet over Coax.
IMO they absolutely sucked. Horrible pricing and customer service. About 18 months ago AT&T Fiber came into my Area and it was also around that time I was planning on cutting the cord. So totally fired Spectrum and their over priced cable and shitty internet and have been on a 400MB plan with AT&T Fiber for less than I was paying for 100MB internet from Spectrum at the time. So glad to be done with them.
Well if you have just their Internet service you have many other options for linear channels,
but your Internet cost may be more if not bundled with their cable TV, plus the cost for IPTV below if not bundled.
At least look at their bundled price, Internet and Cable TV.
Make sure AT&T not available for Fiber internet.
Other IPTV choices for linear channels:
Youtube TV $65, FUBO $69, DirecTV Stream (Various Pkgs), SlingTV, Philo $25(No locals or sports), etc
That’s what Starlink is designed for. Remote no access areas. I think there’s a coverage map or availability map. Go to starlinked, plug in the info and it’ll tell ya the availability. oooohhhh. I just noticed it’s $110/mth with a $600 setup fee. Ouch.
Ok, not sure what you mean by let the community know. There are some insider members already using this service. As far as to expensive, that depends, no service vs. 200+MB down in an area that normally wouldn’t have any service. I paid One of the top telecom companies in Canada $340/mth for internet, tv, and phones so for me $110/mth isn’t excessive.
Not to worry, where your going they have the Hillbilly Network…everyone strings cans in the treetops and Bo Duke does spin outs around the tree trunks and generates a internet of some sorts …well I read that on the internet somewhere
