When you are new in town, your internet connection can be your only savior and friend. You need a stable and affordable internet service to stay in touch with your family and friends back home. College students and young professionals find it increasingly challenging to find their footing in a new place. Studies show that 80 percent of students agree that life away from home is “difficult” and more than 93 percent admit that they face “financial trouble” after relocation. Spectrum takes note of these difficulties and helps newcomers feel more “settled in” by keeping the prices of Spectrum Internet plans to a minimum for the first 12 months. A year of discounted internet is all that these newbies need to slowly reduce their reliance on the support network in their hometown and kick-start adult life in downtown.

So, for all the ‘another year older, another year wiser’ and hopefully ‘another year richer’ out there, it is time to look at the Spectrum Internet prices after 12 months and keep that extra cash handy for the next bill payment.

Spectrum Internet Promotional Pricing for New Customers

Spectrum Internet® is rolling out the red carpet for its first-time broadband service subscribers. New customers of Spectrum can save up to $360 in a year through its promotional pricing offer that lasts for the first 12 months of service. Spectrum Internet® subscribers can enjoy further discounts throughout the year when they bundle their Internet plan with cable TV, home phone, and mobile phone services. 

So, what changes after the promo period of 12 months that leaves Spectrum Internet® subscribers gawking at their internet bills? Well, as they say, “All good things must come to an end”. And just like every other short-lived happy moment in your life, Spectrum savings, too, have an expiry date. From the second year onwards, Spectrum customers are charged a regular rate for their broadband service, which increases between 33 and 60 percent, depending on your monthly plan. 

How Much is Spectrum Internet After 12 Months? 

There is a new reality show that has taken the country by storm. “Keeping Up with Inflation” airs every month on the last date of your billing cycle. The episodes feature month-over-month Consumer Price Index (CPI) data as the main cast and cameo appearances by Wall Street Indices offer a fresh insight into the woes of the participants. 

Now let us simplify this satirical remark for you. Inflation is on the rise in the USA and the world over. Price hikes have become a norm in all sectors of the economy. From your groceries to rents, and fuel prices to college fees, everything has become at least 20 percent more expensive. Businesses are struggling to keep their operational costs low. Even after reducing their profit margins and absorbing the bulk load of overhead expenses, they are unable to offer goods and services at old rates. 

Spectrum Internet® offers its new customers temporary relief in these dire times. After year-long savings, the monthly internet fees are adjusted for inflation, and the regular rates are between 33 and 60 percent higher than the introductory rates. A year ago, the price difference between Spectrum Internet’s promo rates and standard rates was $25 per month. But last year, the regular price was further increased by $5, and now the difference between the introductory price and the regular price is $30 per month. 

You may refer to the table below to get a quick overview of Spectrum Internet prices after 12 months.
