Spectrum says it’s doubled the speed of internet service in Central Missouri from a download speed of 100 to 200 mega bits per second.
The company also says you can get speeds of up to 400 mega bits per second.
The new speeds come automatically for new Spectrum customers, but if you already have service you’ll see speeds going up in the first quarter of 2021.
It’s possible you might need a new modem to use the higher speeds, but that’ll be available at no extra charge.
Spectrum says it’ll be contacting you if you need that new modem.
