Charter Communications



Stamford, CT. – March 13, 2020 – In the coming weeks, many Americans will be affected either

directly or indirectly by COVID-19 and Charter is focused on serving and supporting our 29 million

customers. Americans rely on high speed broadband in nearly every aspect of their lives and Charter is

committed to ensuring our customers maintain reliable access to the online resources and information

they want and need. To ease the strain in this challenging time, beginning Monday, March 16, Charter

commits to the following for 60 days:

•    Charter will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households

with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband

subscription at any service level up to 100 Mbps. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395.

Installation fees will be waived for new student households.

•    Charter will partner with school districts to ensure local communities are aware of these

tools to help students learn remotely.

•    For eligible low-income households without school-aged children, Charter continues to

offer Spectrum Internet Assist, a low-cost broadband program delivering speeds of 30


•    Charter will open its Wi-Fi hotspots across our footprint for public use

•    Spectrum does not have data caps or hidden fees.

As the country works collaboratively to contain this pandemic, broadband internet access will be

increasingly essential to ensuring that people across the country are able to learn and work remotely,

that businesses can continue to serve customers, and that Americans stay connected and engaged with

family and friends.

Charter’s advanced communications network will ensure our more than 29 million customers – including

government offices, first responders, health care facilities, and businesses – across 41 states maintain

the connectivity they rely on. The network is built to sustain maximum capacity during peak usage which

is typically in the evenings, so a surge during the day would be well within the network’s capabilities to

manage. Charter will continue to closely monitor this dynamic situation, and is well-prepared to

continue delivering reliable connectivity. Charter has extensive business and workforce continuity plans

in place that will be adjusted as needed to best serve all our customers and employees.
