LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Spectrum is increasing internet speeds for Louisville customers.

A spokesperson tells WDRB the company is doubling its starting download speed from 100 megabits per second to 200, for no charge.

The increased speed is currently available to new Spectrum internet customers.

Spectrum says existing customers will have their speed boosted in the coming weeks.

The change will be automatic. Customers do not have to do anything else.

A Spectrum representative encourages customers to reset their modems, which will refresh the service and may help customers get the speeds quicker if Spectrum has already updated in their area.
