Charter’s gigabit cable with no data caps is ready for 27 million homes
Charter's gigabit Internet service launched to another 4 million homes this month, and now more than 27 million homes in Charter's territory can get the ISP's fastest offering. Charter is aiming to make the "Spectrum Internet Gig" service—with actual download speeds of up to 940Mbps—available to nearly all of the homes in its cable footprint by the end of this year.
The current 27 million home deployment is "more than halfway to our goal of making gigabit connections available to virtually our entire 41-state footprint," Charter, the second largest US cable company after Comcast, said in an announcement last week. "By Labor Day, we'll be rolling out to even more cities to get closer to that year-end goal."
Charter's cable network extends to about 50 million homes and businesses across the US. Prices for the gigabit service have ranged from $105 to $125 a month; DSLReports notes that the cost for consumers "var[ies] slightly depending on local competition."
