Spectrum now cable provider in Ashland area

ASHLAND, Ky. — Charter Communications Inc. announced this morning the launch of Spectrum in the Ashland area.

After merging with Time Warner Cable last May, it is the second-largest cable company in America, with more than 90,000 employees.

Spectrum is a TV, Internet and voice provider, delivering, tens of thousands of On Demand options, Internet speeds starting at 30 Mbps and a reliable, fully featured voice product.

Spectrum features straightforward, nationally uniform pricing with no contracts, no early termination fees, and is backed by 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, in a release. “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.”

Spectrum Internet plans now start at 30 Mbps, with no data caps, usage-based pricing or additional modem fees, enabling customers to enjoy an unlimited broadband experience and the ability to simultaneously stream high-definition videos, download music and more without sacrificing Internet performance.

Spectrum is also investing in service. Spectrum is bringing back jobs from overseas call centers, insourcing its workforce, and adding more jobs to serve the customer better. Overall, Spectrum plans to add 20,000 jobs, the majority of whom will serve customers directly.

Time Warner Cable customers can remain in their current plan or switch to Spectrum products and packaging at any time, according to Spectrum spokesman Mike Hogan.
