Binghamton University/Spectrum Off Campus Internet Program Update (November 20, 2017)

In 2016, Time Warner Cable was acquired by Charter Communications/Spectrum. With this acquisition, several significant organizational changes implemented by Spectrum have had a negative impact on the Telecommunications Off Campus Internet program. Due to these changes, the Telecommunications Off Campus Internet program will only be available for those who are currently enrolled and are receiving services. The program will not be offered as a service to new customers. The Telecommunications staff will continue to work with Spectrum in meeting these challenges and hope to resume the off campus internet offerings for new customers in the near future.  Those interested in establishing a new subscription to Spectrum services need to contact the company directly. Contact the Telecommunications office if you have questions about your existing account.
