In this guide, learn how to opt for and set up Spectrum self-install. So let us jump right in!

Spectrum Self-Installation Guide – Convenience Guaranteed!

Although Spectrum has offered the self-install option for a long time, it was not until the Covid-19 pandemic that the trend really took off. People quarantined in their homes still needed a high-speed internet connection and Spectrum ensured easy access for its subscribers. The option to self-install allows people to set up the service at their homes all on their own, which is quite convenient and safe.

One of the best things about Spectrum Self Install is the fact that it costs quite lower than what you would pay for a professional installation. In fact, where Spectrum pro-install costs $59.99 as a one-time charge, the self-install kit is free; although you do have to pay a one-time service activation fee of $24.99. Even so, the self-install option helps you save a few bucks on the side, which is always a good thing!

Who Is Spectrum Self-Install Best For?

The accessibility that comes with the self-install option for Spectrum Internet is helpful on so many levels. Some of the families and people that may benefit the most from Spectrum Self-Install include:

  1. On a budget: Need new internet service but do not have a lot of money to spare? Set up your Spectrum internet yourself and save on the pro installation fee.
  2. Prioritizing safety: For people who live alone or do not feel comfortable having strangers in their homes, can get the self-install kit and set up the service on their own.
  3. Tech-savvy individuals: Those comfortable around technology and like to dabble in it can set up Spectrum Internet on their own while exploring all the different components of the system.
  4. Availability concerns: When you opt for professional installation, you would get an appointment date and time slot. People who usually work during the day may find it difficult to find a slot that works for them. With self-install, this is not an issue and you can set up the connection whenever you have the time for it.
