www.activate.spectrum.net – Spectrum Activation Online

Activate Spectrum

  • Activate a Charter Spectrum service from the comfort of an office chair
  • The activation process is so easy a caveman could do it and it should take less than 3 minutes
  • Activate.Spectrum.com is operated by Charter Communication LCC

Before starting the activation process please be sure to power and connect all of the device the customer plans on activating (this will avoid a embarrassing phone call to the Spectrum customer service team).  Any questions in regards to www.activate.spectrum.com can be directed to 1 (855) 757-7328 or refer to the instructions booklet that came with the equipment in question. Customers who carelessly tossed the instructions in the trash will want to access copies of those instructions and other helpful tips on our support site (or they can go dumpster diving in hopes that the instructions are not already covered in last nights meat loaf).  In order to start the activation process the customer will need to provide their Spectrum account number or the phone number associated with the Spectrum account in question along with their service zip code.  The customers Spectrum account number will be 16-digit long and can be found on the welcome received with the equipment in question.
