Suddenlink has announced a rate increase effective Dec. 2.
Michael Kelemen, director of government relations, said the average rate increase will be 3.89 percent.
“Suddenlink continues to make significant investments in its local network, increasing the number of high-definition TV services and increasing Internet download speeds, among other improvements,” Kelemen said.
“While we pledge to hold prices as low as possible, we continue to face the rising costs of TV programming, equipment, insurance and other expenses.”
He said the cost of basic cable networks and broadcast TV stations combined is increasing more than 8.5 percent each year.
“Suddenlink is absorbing a portion of these cost increases and passing along a portion to customers.”
Customers who subscribe to a bundled package of services with a promotional rate will keep that rate until its anniversary date.
Kelemen also recommends selecting a bundled package with two or more Suddenlink services to help customers “off-set adjustments and potentially save money.”
