The gem of the Midwest, Columbus, is the one of the top 20 most populated cities in the U.S. And, while some see the city as a victim of urban blight, others are charmed by the diverse character of its neighborhoods and its abundant farmland.

The warmer months bring you the joys of shopping for Ohio’s high-quality meats, grains, vegetables, fruits and more at its many spectacular Farmers’ markets. From a thriving food and art scene to concerts, festivals and sports events, Columbus offers plenty of opportunities to live a wholesome life with ready access to modern urban amenities. Plus the city has growing suburban neighborhoods in its surroundings with their own schools, shops, restaurants etc., so you can also escape the dense urban vibe if that is what you prefer.

All of that put together with its 10% lower cost of living relative to the national average, and one of the highest concentrations of top ranked public schools in Ohio, makes Columbus a city well worth moving to. And to top that some of the best ISPs in the industry serve the residents’ digital communication and entertainment needs!

Reliable & Fast Spectrum Internet in Columbus, OH

Spectrum Internet is delivered over an advanced hybrid Fiber-Coaxial network, and speeds max out at 1 Gbps. Starting download speeds are up to 200 Mbps pretty ubiquitously, and there is also an in-between speed tier Ultra which gets you up to 400 Mbps downloads. As for uploads Spectrum gets you fast enough speeds at 10, 20 and 35 Mbps with its 3 standardized service tiers.

This way the Spectrum service covers a variety of household sizes and usage patterns. For regular usage in a small to mid-sized family Spectrum Internet 200 is a great choice. But, if you want more users and devices to be connected seamlessly for remote work, virtual learning, streaming TV and gaming needs, Spectrum Ultra is the answer. While for a super-connected smart home Spectrum’s Gig service proves ideal.

The great perk you get with high-speed cable broadband from Spectrum is the unlimited data allowance. Which means no data-anxiety through the month, no throttled speeds, and no overage fee to worry about when its time to pay your bill. Also, the FREE internet modem and antivirus software, and access to millions of Spectrum out-of-home WiFi hotspots, add value to your subscription.

As for in-home WiFi, Spectrum charges a low $5/mo. fee to use the WiFi feature on the provider-supplied pre-configured modem. You can avoid that by using your own router, but if you are not tech savvy, it is wiser to go with the Spectrum WiFi service which allows multiple users and devices to connect and enjoy a steady online experience. Like so you benefit from free of cost Spectrum technical support as well.
