An introduction to Roadrunner Email and Time Warner Email

Roadrunner is a subsidiary of Time Warner Cable network provider in the US. Till 2015, Time Warner was the second-largest cable network provider in the US. But in 2016, Charter Communication bought Time Warner along with its subsidiaries. Roadrunner was also one of those subsidiaries. Roadrunner is a spinoff of Time Warner company. Since its launch in 1995, Roadrunner was aimed to provide high-speed internet.

Roadrunner became widely popular among US consumers soon after its launch. The service is named after a famous cartoon character, “Roadrunner.” The company took Roadrunner’s name to advertise its fast network speed. However, after the consolidation between Charter Communications and Time Warner Inc., Roadrunner was renamed. And it is now known as the Spectrum Internet. Currently, Charter Communications manages both Time Warner Inc. and Roadrunner Internet service.
