So far, I don’t like it!

About 2 months ago, as I was going to check my bill status on MyTWC app, I was alerted to the new this app app. So I downloaded it and took a look and saw that everything looked okay, but there was something lacking; a way to check and edit my voicemail. So I continued to use the MyTWC app for that purpose. As a matter of fact, I used the MyTWC app about 3 days ago. Now today, I’m told that I have messages on my phone, so I go to check them from my app to clear it out because I know it’s mostly spam calls that are too stupid to recognize a voicemail system. But lo and behold the MyTWC app won’t login, it just keeps referring me to the this app app which still doesn’t allow me to access my voicemail. Other than checking my voicemail, bill amount or equipment status when I see a issue, MySpectrum is worthless to me. You can’t schedule or change the scheduled time of a repair, and I can’t check my voicemail without dialing into the system and punching in a bunch of numbers. The older MyTWC app was so much better! Either fix the new app so that it’s comparable, or allow people to continue using the older app. I kinda wanted to give it a 1 star because of what it can’t do, but decided to give it two stars because of what it can. Still got a long way to go to make up the difference.


Negative 5 Star Rating 👎

WARNING: Don’t use MySpectrum, it’s a DISASTER! I had trouble with the website so I logged into MySpectrum to pay my bill. I attempted to make a $40 payment with my debit card. I selected the option “pay other amount” and fully excepted to have the options to choose the amount of the payment, the payment date, and the payment method (as I do with ALL of my other apps). Unfortunately, after I selected the "choose other amount option" an ad popped up asking if I liked MySpectrum . Annoyed by the interruption, I clicked no. Then I received a receipt for a payment of $103 to a credit card I stopped using months ago!!
I searched MySpectrum for an option to edit or cancel the payment but found none. I searched for an option to change my payment method and to delete the credit card but found none.
I called Spectrum and 1.5 hours later after speaking to 4 different representatives, I was told that there is nothing that Spectrum can do. I was advised to call my bank to stop the payment (in my own time, dime, and energy). Furthermore, representatives were rude and didn't seem to care about my concerns at all.
Because of that experience and the slow and intermittent WiFi, I will probably cancel my account!! 🙃
My rating is negative 5 stars! 👎


Can’t even watch a show!

I got Sling do you watch specific channels. At first it worked OK, at least during the trial. Within two months, streaming is failure, it doesn’t respond to commands. Every channel on sling jumps back five or 10 minutes several times an hour, showing the same commercials and starting back at part of the show I watched 10 minutes ago! This happens every time every channel at least 3 to 6 times in an hour show, fast forward doesn’t work or only works once, then no controls don’t work at all, not even to ask it does show!! Understand this, I already watched that batch of ads and beginning of show segment and your app jumps five minutes backwards or 10 minutes backwards making me watch same thing over again, several times an hour!!
I tried everything, turned off do you, reset modem, changed electric outlet, changed to different streaming service and back.
Interesting, no interruptions or jumping backwards to see same stuff happens on other apps. If this is not fixed I will cancel! Yes quite angry because I’m paying for a service you’re not giving me!!
And don’t thank me for feedback, just fix MySpectrum or give me a refund!


Lied to multiple times , app doesn’t work

I was told I was going to keep my internet speed and get cable for 5 dollars more because I was on an old plan with brighthouse, in addition there would be no installation fee, once they installed cable, I was downgraded on my internet’s speed from 200 to 50mbs, also I was charged for installation, I requested them to just please put me back on my old plan, I was told they no longer offered that speed since it was Brighthouse. Yet I had it 20 minutes before. After getting the run around and speaking to a supervisor, he assured me that I would get my speed and be given it at the reduced rate I was on prior. It never happen, I called again and was told they could up grade my speed to the max speed offered in my area but there was a 200 dollar installation fee. I wish there were other options for internet in area but sadly this monopoly has bought out every cable company So they do as they please. With disregard for the customer. If I had other options besides dsl I would gladly pay double, just to not deal with these thieves. Oh and MySpectrum doesn’t work it’s on “authenticating” screen, apparently it’s he only screen within MySpectrum because I’m still “authenticating” .


Don’t even call them to ask about the mobile service!

I did that and before I knew it, Ithdy sent me a phone and They refused to take it back. They finally said I could return it to the spectrum store but they would not take it back either. They have billed me at least 4 times even though I told them I was with Sprint and didn’t know if I could get out of that service. I haven’t been Able to f/u with it but you can bet I will. They are Liars and thiefs!!!! I would give them an even lower score if I could. I was taking care of my 94 yo mother when this happened. and she has now died ! I haven’t even opened the box, in fact I don’t even know what model it is . the SIM card is not installed and yet they won’t let me return it and have charged me all this money. The guy I spoke to knew I wasn’t buying it and he even said well , if you do want it, don’t buy it from the store, call back and buy it from me! I am giving you fair warning, stay as far away from Spectrum mobile as possible! DON’T EVEN CALL THEM ! If they lie and cheat sending and charging you for a phone you didn’t want them no telling what they will do in the future ! !


Spectrum does not care

I have been a Spectrum user for over a evade and they do not show any care in people using their service. I have made payments consistently every month but for some reason 11/17's payment disappears. They sent no notice until one day they robo called me to inform me of late payment and they would discontinue my service. Their accounting is deplorable. Customer service doesn't help. Went up the chain of command as far as they would let me go. I demanded to go higher and was rebuffed continually. I have two kids with autism that have a routine of watching online programming every day. Yet when the service gets interrupted because Spectrum decided to disconnect the signal my wife and I have to calm our kids which is not easy due to their condition. I have had accounting issues in the past where they made error and we fixed them. However even though we have a receipt stating that payment was made they will not honor that. I was told that a receipt is not proof of payment. Funny.... Every store that I make a purchase provides a receipt. They are bound by that receipt. But not Spectrum. Spectrum is a fraud. The Attorney General for my state had been informed.



I just wanted to let you know about the services that you offer and that it is great and I do appreciate during this pandemic that y’all have the compassion to let us have payment agreement and you break it down and everything like that the agents are always sweet and it’s not like they’re trying to rush you or talk rude to you or anything and I have recommend you to so many people and again I just want to say thank you and continue to keep keep up the good work I just want to thank Spectrum I enjoy your services that you provide and I also enjoy appreciate that during this pandemic that you give us a chance to make payment arrangements and you know you just reach out to us and when I called I always get excellent service from the agent and I am I have recommend Joe to so many people because of your service and I am just wanted to let you know


There’s a few bugs but nothing that makes it unusable

Coming from the AT&T app which was such a pain in my back that it hurt my chest, the Spectrum app is like that moment when you feel the painkillers kick in and it all just melts away. No exaggeration. I physically feel relief using MySpectrum after using AT&Ts app.

You can see exactly which devices are connected to your WiFi and kick some off if you don’t recognize them or they’re using too much bandwidth. Or idk, change the password and ground the kids. Also you can easily and immediately change the password or WiFi network name but keep in mind you’ll need to reconnect everything manually if you do change name/password of the WiFi.

Pay the bill in a couple taps, change account settings, check status of all your spectrum equipment and restart anything if you need to, add or upgrade whenever you want.

Seriously they absolutely nailed it.

The only real bugs I’ve noticed on multiple devices is the Home Screen scrolls faster than what your finger is scrolling. Only the Home Screen, and it doesn’t jump around so it’s not a real issue aside from taking some time to get used to and dismissing in-app notifications doesn’t dismiss in-app notifications.


Spectrum Internet

So I got a coupon for package and the woman even agreed when I said is this your highest speed cuz I need for security system woman cx serv rep says yep ‘lies so now I need my Internet updated to the higher speed with no cost but if it’s there fault then they should have to send someone out and change routers to accommodate a customers security system!! It’s not convenient to go to the Store to change it cuz not every body has a car. I don’t. But I get rides although I’m fully disabled and would help me if they come out to my address and check all wires so I know my security system is set ! There should be an option on the website to be able to push button to upgrade at no extra cost and put your information done name and such . Address and then service man deliveres to you plus makes sure it’s all connected wires for the internet are all connected and in good spots for security system to work correctly . Thank you

Frustrated new mobile customer

I am extremely frustrated with this company

I wanted to switch my mobile service to them and the first step is you have to have another service with with. I do have a home in wi and IL. I have their service at my home residence so I make the call to make the switch on line but couldn’t complete as they wouldn’t allow changing the address to where the phone would be shipped. So I explain this to the customer service person who took over making the order to ship the phone. I asked for confirmation that the correct address to ship was on the order and they confirmed yes. So I make payment to process the order forward. We complete the call. I get email confirmation that the phone is being shipped to my address in WISCONSIN not Illinois as requested. So I call to see if it can be corrected they state no as you made payment. I am quarantined in IL. My phone will be sent to WI and there is no one there to sign for it. I called again to see if they can instruct FedX to send to Illinois not possible. Please revisit this order conversation and tell me what could I have done differently to not be here 🤬


Updated doesn’t mean better

I agree with previous review 100%. Also with the TWC app, I was able to receive notifications on my iPhone of an incoming call on my home number pretty much in real time. It would show the name of the caller and time of call, (just as it shows up on ur TV, if you have turned on ur called ID in settings on ur remote). If there was a voicemail, there was notification would pop up as well. I’d tap on the notification on my iPhone, and it would take me directly to the TWC app and I could listen to the voicemail. I could even send that VM to my email if I wanted to keep it or forward to a family member so they could listen to it.

Why is this not available? And my mobile service is thru AT&T, not Spectrum. So that is not an excuse. After the price jump on our bundle of services, and losing channels we had for years, that are no longer in our tier unless we pay extra, we are looking into “cutting the cord” and getting our services elsewhere. Spectrum there is a lot of competition out there, keep your customers happy. It costs you more money to get new customers vs maintaining the ones you have.


Duplicate Payment

I couldn’t remember whether I made a payment for the month. I checked MySpectrum to see if I had a balance. It showed that I did I had a billing amount. Subsequently, I made a payment. When I discovered I made two payments for the same billing period I contacted spectrum as my bank cannot stop a pending transaction. Spectrum, rather the csr Stephanie K. stated that they could not stop a pending transaction too. I asked if I could receive a refund check, because I do not like vendors holding my money for a credit that seems to disappear at times. The CSR said that they had spoken with their supervisor just yesterday about the issue and the supervisor had said it was not the policy of Spectrum to issue checks, rather they issue a credit or debit card. I said I would like to speak with the supervisor. Stephanie said she had spoken with her supervisor and that that person was not going to provide a different answer. Then she lapsed into how Spectrum pays its employees in card form. It was amazing how we went from talking about getting me a refund to her receiving paycheck via debit card! I am not impressed with MySpectrum , nor am I impressed with Spectrum’s CSRs.


Lack of Device Management

There’s a photo of device management, but there is none on MySpectrum. I really need it, so I can limit my kids’ WiFi access and schedule when they’re allowed access. I tell them to be done by 9p for bed, yet one of them continues to go past that and changing the WiFi password doesn’t work because my kid uses an Ethernet cable and somehow doesn’t need the right password. I will resort to unplugging the cable tonight, but he’s likely to just plug it back in. I’ve had problems where I can’t edit the WiFi password on MySpectrum , so I’m unable to change it back. And another kid doesn’t do her chores like I’ve said to.

I’d really like to manage their devices without directly confronting them every time and confiscating their devices or computer. It’s tiring having to repeat my stance and reasons every time. Back before having the computer with an ethernet cable, the kids wouldn’t put up much of a fight when I used to be able to manage their devices on the IP address, but that IP address is gone now.



GET THE INTERNET FIXED IN SOUTHERN MIDDLE TN NOW! I’m so sick of having the internet go in and out all the time lately. It’s become so unreliable:( I pay a fortune for your TV & Internet monthly. I don’t know what’s going on with your company for the past several months now, but you’d better get it straightened out fast. The TV portion is working right now but there have been issues with certain channels being heavily pixelated & freezing up at times to where you can’t even finish watching your show. It’s frustrating. But the internet is NOT currently working. I’m sick of paying you monthly for the full overpriced amount that I’m billed as it is, but this makes it ridiculous. You should credit people’s account & make our bills less when there’s so many issues with your service. I’ve thought about changing jobs to where I could work from home due to health issues & convenience. But that would require a reliable internet connection at home & sadly I can’t depend on you, so that limits what I can do job wise. I’ve been a loyal customer for years, but I’m thinking of taking my business elsewhere.


Forced update required

I normally despise a forced required update. It brings to mind Windows.
With that out or the way, this current app build is filled to the brim with problems. I attempted to notify Charter Communications support about them. I even notified their security team, both replied that the problem does not exist. I through my research found MySpectrum is leaking information through a previously known exploit.
When I informed their security team of the bug, I used the standard CVE format, and apparently no one in their entire company knew what that was. The first person emailed me to specify what a CVE was, At first I tried to expound on the problem. A second email reply however was even stupider than the first. ‘We are unable to determine what this CVE acronym means, if you are unwilling to tell us what cve means then we will be unable to assist you’
I was floored. As Im sure the entire tech world is as well. I didnt bother attempting a second time. I simply copy pasted their response and came here to write this review in hope someone with a brain will be able to assist me and hopefully understand basic tech terms to patch their app.


Spectrum Account Features

I am a residential account holder and I wanted to say spectrum has a very convenient account to manage. Iv been able to do mostly everything I wanted to do online and MySpectrum is alot more useful than the apps of my other utilities. It is very easy to set up payments on MySpectrum and make changes to the account. When I need to, I know I can call customer service and recieve exceptional service over the phone that is also very useful. For planning my first move, I called them up and they were helpful in putting my account on hold with a minor fee to keep it open. No utility has been this helpful so far. I am very pleased with how convenient spectrum makes it to have an account and move around with them. Thank you Spectrum!


Limited control...when it works

While the ability to schedule and pause devices from your mobile device is nice in principle, it doesn’t work nearly as well or with nearly as much flexibility as accessing your router using the old-fashioned Internet interface method. Then, occasionally you will not be able to see any of the devices on your home network in MySpectrum for hours at a time - and you will not be able to pause, unpause or schedule any of them, period. A real dilemma if you need to use them for, say, work or something! If they are paused, the only way you will be able to use them is to do a remote factory reset of your router, erasing all of your scheduling, network information and password. And then manually re-enter that stuff again and hope that the list re-populates. Or you can sit on hold waiting for help. Forever. But that’s another unrelated part of the Spectrum story. As for MySpectrum, beware. Badly designed controls, spotty usability.


Horrible compared to TWC (updated review)

5/9/19- latest update (7.4) allows me to check home phone voicemail, so that’s a much needed fix, thank you. Still needs ability to chat and I have yet to attempt to pay bill through app but hear that may still be an issue... still holding out 5th star until a later date. Separately I will agree that prices are high and there is no easy way to change plans TWC to Spectrum and be rewarded for being a long time customer, however I won’t allow that to influence my rating for MySpectrum and it’s improvements/refinements.

Since being forced to move from Time Warner app to Spectrum app now I can’t check my home phone voicemail and now you can’t chat the agents, you must call or email. Way to go Spectrum, making it more difficult on the customers and simpler on yourselves, so much for the age of customer service... horrible!


Outdated/Not User Intuitive

I don’t know where to start. MySpectrum needs to be more user intuitive. If there’s an outage, there’s no way to check, without going to the website, but easiest if I go to my web browser and do a search. The same goes if my particular account is affected. You cannot do anything or get any information from MySpectrum , in a world where every consumer manages their life through an app.

Additionally, internet service is not great. I pay for the upgraded, higher tier, for internet service and I still have issues with all my streaming devices. Again, in a world where everything is streamed and connected.

If Spectrum invested as much money in their apps, user-interface/experience, and infrastructure, as they spend in media trying to get customers to upgrade to their other offerings, I might actually give them more than one star. I cannot tell you how much crap I throw away coming in the mail, emails, etc. It’s wasteful and a waste of money, harmful to the environment.


Internet problem

I lost my Internet this past week and I had to call spectrum seven times the second time I called I asked for a technician to come out because they could not fix it over the phone. They ignored my request. Finally the third call they said they could get a technician out but it would be a few days before they could. That was unacceptable because I needed the Internet for an important matter. They finally called me and got me a an appointment for the next day but when I called back the automation system said my appointment was still for a couple days later. When I asked to speak to the dispatch about the appointment they said they could not transfer me that no one calls dispatch. I finally resorted to a computer guru in my neighborhood. This man came over and fixed my problem within five minutes. What is wrong with spectrum? They have a lot of people there who don’t know how to fix a problem that a 70-year-old man was able to fix in five minutes. When it was Brighthouse service was 100% better.


App doesn’t link to account

Sounds stupid, doesn’t it? Got a letter saying my account was past due. Open MySpectrum , it shows a $0 balance. Thinking the mail lost the notice and I’d since made the proper payment, I toss the note. A few days later I get an email saying I owed, I open MySpectrum , still a $0 balance. Double check the account information, reconfirm my email to make sure I wasn’t getting phishing scams or something, and everything is good. I was going to try logging out and back in but, guess what? That isn’t an option (what moron decided that wouldn’t be necessary?)...once again I ignore the email thinking the ‘click here to pay’ link was probably a scam, and the verified account with their app shows $0. Finally, someone called. I explained that MySpectrum showed zero owed, I had previously made a payment 3-4x the monthly charge and should hold a positive balance. I was told to use the website and not MySpectrum and there it was, -$198. I immediately paid it and wrote this review. What a dumb fxxking app that doesn’t tie to your account, doesn’t give proper account information, and still requires website login since it apparently only provides information from when you installed MySpectrum . Don’t trust it. I’ll use google fiber or AT&T when I move next month.


Doesn’t function very well

Oh how i long for my old TWC app. I’ve had MySpectrum for a long time now and it as useless as when I first loaded it. Is anybody there listening to any of our complaints? I don’t think so or they would have fixed some things by now. They don’t show upcoming service appointments nor can I get through to them from calling on my cell from a hospital to cancel and reschedule. What is up with that. I’m calling from my cell inside a hospital and they keep calling me back on my home phone. Not only that I insist on paying my bill immediately and every time I pay what I paid the month before ahead of my bill I always end up having to pay an additional 46 cents. Why did the powers that be decide their Spectrum app was far superior to Time Warner? They bought Time Warner because they wanted to be #1. Why didn’t they convert Charter to TWC. That would have been the smart way seems as how TWC is far superior to Charter and much, much bigger. Please make your app comparable to what you decided to replace. I know you really don’t care what your customers think of you but please maybe you should listen to us for a change.



Used app to look up current bill amount. My dog jumped in my lap causing me to nearly drop my phone. Grabbing my phone, I inadvertently touched the blue button. It immediately paid the bill! There was no “check your info is correct and select the submit button”. There was no confirmation screen. My intentions were NOT to pay the bill, rather to see how much I was being charged when my channels and viewing quality were terrible! Consequently, nothing could be done on their end. I was told I’d be charged $25 if a return payment was executed, not to mention the bank fees! All because I accidentally pushed a button when preventing my phone from dropping. I asked the CS Rep if she’d heard of this happening before, surely I wasn’t the only ‘klutzy customer’ and she said ”oh yes, many times.” I could only say, “wow, seems like that should be fixed.”


Simply Great

I was experiencing issues with my router and my Xbox couldn’t connect to the internet. I tried resetting the router manually then I tried unplugging everything and waiting a full minute before plugging it back in & that still didn’t work. I was left scrambling as to what I should do, I HAVE NO INTERNET OMG. So I kept trying to unplug it and waiting a few minutes and it just was not working & not to mention that i had just gotten off work and it’s 10pm so I couldn’t even call them. Totally forgetting that I have the spectrum app, I went on it and selected the “reset my equipment” option and within minutes my internet was working again :D. If you have spectrum internet & or cable etc DOWNLOAD MySpectrum it’s superrrr useful!


Lied to by agent

When we signed up for spectrum we were told by the agent that our bill would be 127 per month and would not increase. When asked if this was a promotional option with a time limit, we were told no, and that our bill would not increase. One year later, our monthly bill increased to 145 per month.

Additionally, we paid for Cinamax as part of our package. Spectrum stated that cinamax would no longer be part of our package and if we wanted the service, we would have to add it for an additional cost.

So when signing up for spectrum service, we were promised one thing and a year later they increased our bill and removed services from us. This is poor business practice. When speaking to a manager/supervisor, we were basically told that there is nothing that can be done and we would receive a 20 dollar credit.

In a time in which Netflix and Disney + are better than cable, this is a bad game to play with customers. I’d rather purchase cheaper internet service from a different company than continue playing these games with cable service providers.

If you are contemplating getting spectrum, beware because the agent may lie to get you to sign up and then the company will go back on its word and charge you additional fees. When bringing this to the attention of their supervisory staff, we were told sorry for the inconvenience, but there’s nothing we can do.

Shame on this company



I am a father of 3, I have had spectrum for some time now and like most parents, I live paycheck to paycheck. The accommodations in which spectrum has tailor made for me is beyond most providers interest of monetary gains. I can truly say that if more companies were interested in a relationships longevity as spectrum is, and continues to be, they would be more lucrative, and successful moving forward in their respective markets and industry. Thank you to the unique staff members Within this organization whom have provided transparency and compassion to my individual needs and ability, in which have accommodated my needs as well as desires. I look forward to another year of best in class service and support.

Thank you.
