Charter Communications Rolls Out 100Mbps Base Internet To St. Louis Today

It looks like Charter Communications has enabled 8 channel bonding and 100Mbps service for the greater St. Louis area tonight, confirming rumors seen over at DSL Reports by user Stevestebo on May 20th, 2014.  Our residential connection of 30Mbps down and 4Mbps up service just jumped up to 100Mbps down and 4Mbps up after we restarted out cable modem tonight at home:

Charter 100Mbps Spectrum St. Louis

This is a pretty nice increase for free, so if you are in the St. Louis area you might want to power cycle your DOCSIS 3.0 cable model and see if you can get the new 100Mbps service with a speed test. We aren’t sure how the Charter Ultra 100 users feel about this, but they are getting bumped up to 120Mbps down for the time being with more speed improvements in the planning stages for the high-end users. Right now the base internet speeds for charter residential customers in the St. Louis area just got a ton faster! The official Charter Spectrum rollout is June 16th, but we’ll take it a week early!

    only 60 / 4 in birmingham. would love to get google fiber. ISPs are holding back the U.S. economy by capping speeds. It is pathetic that they hold the FCC and FTC in their hip pocket. Come on google fiber. Once google fiber becomes widespread, they will beg the federal government to intercede and give them back the unfair monopoly they currently hold. Cities that have gigabit internet have seen their local economies flourish. If only our government had the peoples best interests in mind.

    Charter is the worst company I have ever dealt with. Their service stinks and their “customer service” is even worse. CHARTER STINKS, pass it on…

      Agreed about the customer service, except ATT is even worse.
      I have a problem right now with pixelated hd channels. The Charter tech / customer service rep insisted I check every t.v. and every channel before he would help. I hung up on him, since it is obviously a widespread outage, but he could not see that. I am not going waste an hour trouble shooting their problems. Are they trained to be obtuse?

    4Mbps up, Charter you suck and I thought my Virgin was being tight arses with my 12Mbps up.

    Considering St. Louis is backbone connected and has faster fiber than most cities, that 4mbps upload is downright shameful…
