Charter Communications this week said it will increase the base Internet speed for all of its Spectrum broadband customers.

The speed increase to at least 200 megabits per second (Mbps) will more than double the base download speed for millions of Spectrum customers, the company affirmed.

Customers in Yakima (Washington), Medford (Oregon), Reno (Nevada) and Kalamazoo (Michigan) will be among those to see their Internet speeds double at no additional cost.

The faster base Internet speed is rolling out to new customers who sign up for Spectrum service and will be automatically added to existing customer plans in the coming weeks, Charter said.

The speed bump brings parity in broadband Internet speeds across Charter’s entire Spectrum footprint, which covers millions of customers in more than 40 states.

In addition to its base 200 Mbps package, Charter also offers a tier of service with 400 Mbps and a tier of service offering Gigabit connections.

Charter says its Spectrum packages do not contain data speeds, caps or additional fees.
