How to Choose a Spectrum Internet Plan
It is important to determine what your household will be using the internet for before signing up for an internet plan. You don’t want to sign up for a plan that doesn’t offer enough speed, but you also don’t want too much speed, because you could be wasting money by paying for what you’ll never realistically use.
Many families opt to choose the “Goldilocks” solution when multiple plans are available, and for good reason. You don’t want too much or too little, but instead it’s safe to pick what’s in the middle.
Spectrum Internet’s base tier is great for smaller families, or for households that use the internet for activities that aren’t particularly bandwidth-intensive.
Spectrum Internet Ultra is the perfect in-between of affordability and extravagance, supplying your household with more than enough speed to stream, game, download and upload simultaneously.
Spectrum Internet Gig is built for speed demons, or for families who use many online devices simultaneously, such as working from home while multiple smart TVs or gaming consoles are hooked up to the internet. In these scenarios, it’s best to go with Gig speeds.
In general, you will want to allot about 25-50 Mbps worth of bandwidth for each member of your household, as you can assume each household member likely has one or two (or a few) devices connected to the internet. So, if you have five people in your household, and each one of you has two devices that are connected to your in-home Wi-Fi network at any given time, you will likely want, at minimum, the Spectrum Internet Ultra plan. It would be an even wiser decision to go with Spectrum Internet Gig in this scenario.
The table below summarizes the three Spectrum Internet tiers, and which plan is most applicable for each type of household.
|Plan||Download Speed*||Ideal Household Size||Ideal Online Activities||Starting Price (/mo.)|
|Spectrum Internet||Up to 300 Mbps||1-2||Light to moderate streaming, social media use, online shopping, casual online gaming||$49.99|
|Spectrum Internet Ultra||Up to 500 Mbps||2-4||Working/learning from home, moderate streaming and gaming, a few online devices at once||$69.99|
|Spectrum Internet Gig||Up to 940 Mbps||4+||Working/learning from home, intense streaming, competitive online gaming, simultaneous device use||$89.99|
