The provider doesn't receive high marks from independent agencies. J.D. Power awarded Charter Spectrum a three out of five on its U.S. residential internet service provider customer satisfaction survey. While this is better than the two out of five Comcast received, it indicates there is room for improvement for Charter Spectrum.
