Spectrum has increased the starting download speed of its internet service in the metro Atlanta area from 60 to 100 Mbps.

The company, formerly known as Charter, announced the change late last week.

Mark Spilman, Spectrum area vice president of field operations for Georgia, said 99 percent of the company’s customers will now have access to the 100 Mbps starting speeds.

Spectrum Internet Ultra customers received an automatic upgrade that will triple their top download speed from 100 to 300 Mbps.

Spectrum said prices for its internet service won’t be going up because of the speed increase.

A small number of Spectrum internet customers will need a new modem to receive the faster speeds, the company said, and affected customers will be contacted directly with details on exchanging their modem.

Customers with legacy Spectrum packages will receive the faster speeds automatically in 2018.
