Spectrum Boosts Spectrum Internet ® Starting Speed to 200 Mbps in North
FOR ANTIGO TIMES
WAUSAU, Wis. – Spectrum has doubled the starting download speed of Spectrum
Internet in its Wausau and north-central Wisconsin service areas from 100 to 200 Mbps. The faster 200
Mbps speeds are available now to new Spectrum Internet customers, and the company will
automatically increase speeds for current residential customers with new Spectrum Internet packages in
the coming weeks.
“Wausau and many surrounding north-central Wisconsin cities, towns and villages are now part of a
growing number of Spectrum communities, comprising millions of homes, where our Internet starting
speed is now 200 Mbps,” said Ralph Newcomb, Spectrum’s Area Vice President for Wisconsin. “We’re
delivering internet customers even more speed for streaming, surfing and social media.”
Spectrum Internet now offers 200 Mbps starting speeds in its north-central Wisconsin service area,
which covers communities such as Wausau, Stevens Point, Marshfield, Wisconsin Rapids, Rhinelander,
Minoqua, Tomahawk, Crandon, Merrill, Antigo and other surrounding towns and villages served by
Spectrum with no data caps, modem fees or contracts. A small percentage of Spectrum Internet
customers will need a new modem — available at no additional charge — to receive the faster speeds.
Affected customers do not need to take any action now; Spectrum will contact customers who need a
new modem with details on exchanging their modem over the next several weeks.
For Wausau and north-central Wisconsin customers who want even faster speeds, Spectrum Internet
Ultra includes download speeds up to 400 Mbps, while Spectrum Internet Gig offers a gigabit connection
to the customer’s home.
