I've connected Spectrum approved Wi-Fi router to my laptop and turned ON in settings of laptop. Since Spectrum is my ISP, am I still supposed to pay for internet to Spectrum?

Any suggestion for getting Free Internet by using this router?

    Hello and welcome to the Spectrum Community, @cwtnet

    We do not provide free Internet access. You can check out our current offers for your area by plugging in your address on the main spectrum website.

    When we provide your Internet service, you will be assigned one or two pieces of equipment. If you have your own wifi router you will still need our modem or a modem that is authorized to connect to our system. Modem's (either ours or yours) do not affect the monthly rate. However, if you use our wifi router, and not your own, there is a $5 a month charge in addition to the monthly rate for the service.

    In a nutshell, you have the monthly service fee, no modem fees, and only and extra $5 fee if you use our wifi router.

    Thanks for the great question,
