Time Warner Cable transitions to Spectrum

Company says they will provide highest internet speeds in area

COLUMBUS – Charter Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: CHTR) today announced the launch of Spectrum in Ironton and surrounding areas. The new service promises Internet speeds starting at 30 Mbps, among other services and features, including uniform pricing with no contracts, no early termination fees, and a 30-day money back guarantee.

“At Charter, we are working hard to redefine what a cable company can be and we call it Spectrum,” said Tom Rutledge, chairman and chief executive officer. “It starts by providing the best TV, Internet and voice services possible at the greatest value to our customers, combined with a service organization that is large enough, expertly trained and well-equipped to provide the highest level of craftsmanship and service.”

The company’s plans have no data caps, usage-based pricing or additional modem fees, according to their press release, which they hope will appeal to users with high bandwidth needs. They also provide their own TV bundles, including access to their TV app on mobile devices, and their own in-home voice services

Spectrum will also begin transitioning remaining analog Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks cable systems to all-digital networks.

The company also said they will be investing in service by “bringing back jobs from overseas call centers, insourcing (their) workforce, and adding more jobs to serve the customer better.” The company has plans to add 20,000 jobs, mostly in the customer service field.
