Charter Offers Low-Cost Broadband to Eligible Low-Income Households Across America

With this week’s rollout of Spectrum Internet Assist in Hawaii, we are proud that Charter’s low-cost, high-speed broadband offering is now available to eligible low-income families and seniors across our entire 41-state footprint.  We’re excited to deliver our superior products and services on the most advanced network to those families and seniors who enroll in Spectrum Internet Assist.

For $14.99 per month, Spectrum Internet Assist provides eligible customers access to the fastest base broadband speed (30 Mbps) of any comparable offering in the nation, connecting them to a whole new world of digital access and opportunity.

The rollout of Spectrum Internet Assist was significantly enhanced by partnering with state, county and local elected officials and community leaders in events across our national footprint. We appreciate their support for Spectrum Internet Assist and helping to spread the word about the wide range of benefits it provides to eligible families and seniors.  To learn more about the benefits of Spectrum Internet Assist, watch here.
