Back to School with Spectrum

Share this post

The school year is coming sooner than you think, and while you’re stocking up on school supplies or getting your wardrobe ready to head back to class, you might need a little extra help before you say goodbye to summer. Having the right internet service is crucial to staying on top of classwork, as we learned from a little over a year of remote learning brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why Spectrum is looking to become a part of your back-to-school shopping list, with offers that will keep students logged on and learning, and let their families enjoy that access as well.

Back to School With Spectrum

Having internet access at home and school is more important than ever for students all over the United States. Spectrum is proud to serve among community partners across the U.S. to make sure that everyone from elementary students to grad students has the internet coverage they need to complete coursework. Spectrum Internet speed stands out from other internet service providers, delivering a high-quality, reliable experience with speeds up to 1 Gbps.

With Spectrum Internet, you never have to worry about your Internet slowing down at the wrong time. Stream, game, and study as much as you want with up to 300 Mbps Internet speeds. College students on participating campuses can also upgrade to Spectrum Internet Ultra for an additional $20/mo. With that kind of high-speed internet, you can stream HD and 4K video and online games as much as you want. Finally, do all that streaming and gaming without worrying about data, because Spectrum gives you internet with no data caps.

While getting through the school day and taking care of assignments is important, students need time to unwind. Spectrum provides family access to faster internet with the Internet Ultra plan. With faster download speeds, this package is designed for more reliable performance and ultra-low lag times for everything from streaming movies to online gaming. At $69.99/mo, the Internet Ultra plan offers more support for online engagement, giving applicants more than just a strong start to their daily classwork. You can opt for Spectrum’s Internet Gig plan to get the fastest speeds, with a limited-time offer of $89.99/mo to make sure everyone from kindergarten to college can enjoy uninterrupted, speedy service.

No matter which Spectrum Internet plan you choose, you’ll be set up with a free modem to connect to your WiFi network at home. You’re granted access to out-of-home WiFi via access points all over the United States. You also never have to worry about data caps slowing down your internet coverage. Plus, there are no long-term contracts to get bogged down in, and rates stay the same even if you score on a deal during a promotional period. You also won’t be thrown off by sneaky surcharges and fees at checkout.

TV Time After Assignments

When gearing up to go back to school, you’re certainly going over your school supply list and wardrobe before the beginning of the school year. You might take advantage of deals on certain school supplies to make sure your lockers are ready for the new school year or sneakers to match that first-day outfit. When the deal is available, it makes it worthwhile. That’s why Spectrum is offering up their top-tier cable TV service alongside their high-speed internet plans as part of their Double Play plans.

You can pair Spectrum Internet Ultra with the Spectrum TV Select plan. With this pair, you’ll get fast internet speeds, while also gaining access to 84 channels ranging from some of the top sports networks to news channels and entertainment networks like TNT and TBS. This Double Play plan comes in at $89.98/mo for a 12-month deal. You’ll also get access to Showtime at no additional cost.

It’s the perfect setup for college students living off their campuses or families looking to unwind with their kids after a long school day and homework. You can also pair Spectrum TV’s Choice 15 plan with the Internet Ultra plan, getting basic channels along with 15 networks of your choice from a given list at $79.99/mo. There’s also Spectrum TV’s Essentials, 74 channels including educational favorites for all ages, alongside the Internet Ultra plan, all at $69.99/mo to get you going from the beginning of the school year.

You can also pair your cable TV plan with a home phone. Don’t underestimate the necessity of a home phone. Spectrum Voice provides customers who purchase other packages with a reliable home phone service with crystal-clear digital reception. Plus, in the event of a power outage, you don’t have to worry about a lack of contact when your cell phone’s battery dies. When you include home phone service, you get it for only $14.99/mo! That means that you can get high-definition TV, high-speed internet, and digital phone service in your home for under $100/mo after installation and fees!
