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.”

Lights in the southern end of the tunnel illuminate an odd design beside the catwalk near the left lane of the northbound tube of the East River Mountain Tunnel that transports I-77 from Virginia into West Virginia. Two firefighters who made the initial assault through the total darkness of the soot and smoke-filled tunnel left those marks as they slid their arms along the catwalk wall on their journey back to the light.
