What's New in Version 5.5.6
Love new spectrum updates!
After having 6 service calls and 17 total techinician calls due to never even getting half what I was paying for with the 300mbps extreme package. Spoke to kind lady at spectrum and said give me 24 hours to fix this and call you. With in. I'd say 14 hours she called and told me that they would guarantee (although) not advertised yet I believe but maybe. And a specialist come over we would be on there her brand-new internet which has capacity of 24 bandwidth with an impressive upstreaming. I'm not tech savvy but I've learned that more lanes of traffic you're internet has to take up the less congested if ever it were. Not any other cable provider officers this yet. So the techinician that came really knew his game. He shut off my router portion off the UBBEE while leaving on the modem which delivers 17 lanes but still. I put in a "Nighthawk AC1900 c700 smart wifi router. Grant it I wish I knew the gentleman s name,So he would come back and educate me on the router settings because the app version is not not imformited on how to tune it. Back to spectrum!!!! He was awesome. We now get speeds of over 315 on iPhones and hardwired almost 400!!! Amazing new Internet Spectrum let's keep seeing new things the other dontbhabea!!!!!
Oct 2016 Much Better But Location Should Have "While Using" Choice
The latest update is a huge improvement. I'm in Los Angeles, and despite having to call TWC to have hotspots reset to get them working, I still use this app everyday to find connections when away from home. My sole issue remains the inability to select "when using" for location services. The choice of "always" or "never" forces me to select "never" so I am not using unnecessary data every minute of everyday. I have to physically go into "settings" and change it back to "always" before I open the app, then go back to "settings" and switch it back to "never" after closing the app.
Hotspot locations erratic, I want more.
So, I think TWC does NOT have a grid of purposefully placed hotspots, but rather wherever a business is paying twc for wifi for their business' use and twc manages it then twc makes it available to all twc customers with a sign in ID. And just like at home, wifi is only great for about 20-30 feet and usable up to 50 feet.
So, if you remember this and are not counting on a hotspot on every corner, then it works great. Once I installed this app I no longer have to enter my twc ID and PW every time. Wifi just comes up, connected. I have gotten in the habit of looking for a hotspot before I leave the house.
