Who can spend their day without using their cell phone, going over the internet, watching a TV show, or without calling anyone? It has become a need rather than a want. But dealing with different providers when it comes to your cable TV, internet, or phone services, can be very tiring. Not all service providers offer all services under one roof. Spectrum customers also wonder about the same thing.
Spectrum is one of the largest service providers in the states that offer high-speed internet & cable TV services and bundles to its customers. What many of us do not know is that Spectrum also offers home phone and Mobile phone services. It has some of the best plans available for Spectrum customers so that they can benefit from all the services under one roof instead of signing up for 2-3 different providers. That makes it easier for the customers as they receive one bill for everything and it saves them time and energy. So if you are a Spectrum customer or looking to become one, the good news for you is that Spectrum now offers phone services as well (both mobile and landline).
How Does Spectrum Phone Work?
Spectrum offers both landline and Mobile Phone services along with its cable TV and internet bundles. The home phone service or landline phone offered by Spectrum is a VOIP (Voice over Internet Phone) that gets connected to your internet modem and allows you to make calls. For that reason, Spectrum does not offer home phone services stand-alone. If you would like to get it, you would either have to be an existing internet customer with Spectrum or you would have to sign up for both internet and phone services together.
Regarding Spectrum Mobile Phone, Spectrum does not own the cellular network, instead, it has partnered with Verizon and uses Verizon’s widely available cellular towers to provide cell phone services to its customers. That is a plus point for Spectrum because Verizon has the largest 4G LTE network in the States and Spectrum customers can get benefit from its wide availability. Spectrum is also offering 5G and in some specific states with 5G availability and expanding its 5G network day by day.
Who Can Get A Spectrum Phone?
It does not matter whether you are looking for Spectrum home phone or cellular services or maybe both – there is a major requirement that you would have to do to be eligible. To get these services, you would have to be a Spectrum Internet customer. Moreover, you must sign up for autopay if you are going to sign up for Spectrum Mobile. Once you meet these requirements, you can get up to 5 lines to your cellular services.
The same goes for the home phone since it is a VOIP service and gets connected to the internet modem. So you would have to have internet services in order to get a landline phone through the spectrum. Moreover, you can get in touch with Spectrum customer service to inquire about further details on qualifying criteria or to get answers to your questions.
