24.10.2019 – Good news has arrived in Wausau and other Spectrum service areas in north-central Wisconsin! A new offer from the provider now doubles the starting download speeds in these areas from 100Mbps to 200Mbps! That means more freedom to do all the internet activities that are so important to us.
The provider announced that new residential customers in the Wausau and north-central Wisconsin service areas will now get starting download speeds of 200Mbps as opposed to 100Mbps in the past. But don’t worry if you’re already an existing Spectrum customer. In the coming weeks, the provider will upgrade all current Spectrum internet packages in the area with the new speeds.
“We’re delivering internet customers even more speed for streaming, surfing, and social media” – Ralph Newcomb, Spectrum Area VP Wisconsin
What It Means for Old and New Customers
The provider offers double the starting speeds to all new Spectrum customers in the north-central Wisconsin service areas. That means if you switch to Spectrum today, you can get a service with starting download speeds of 200Mbps.
Old customers will not get the new speeds right away. Spectrum will start rolling out the updated speeds to existing customers in the next few weeks. All you have to do is stay patient for a little bit.
The Areas Covered
The provider has expanded its growing community to include Wausau and the surrounding towns, villages, and cities in north-central Wisconsin. The new download speeds start at 200Mbps and will be available to subscribers in many communities, which include the following:
- Wisconsin Rapids
- Stevens Point
As always, the provider promises reliable and dependable internet service without any data caps. There is no contract requirement or need to pay modem fees.
Things to Note
Some modems in the service areas may be too old to handle the faster speeds. A simple internet speed test will be able to tell you if you’re receiving the new speeds. If not, don’t worry. Spectrum promises to replace your outdated router with a new upgraded one at no additional cost. You don’t even need to get in touch with the provider. Over the coming weeks, representatives will contact subscribers with outdated routers and provide details on how to exchange their new routers with old ones.
