That poster had said before that he lived in a building where he was getting a multi-tenant discount and I see the Bulk Tenant rates increased quite a bit so that must be what he was referring to.

The only change I see for me is that my grandfathered Performance Internet is going up $4.50 from $56.95 to $61.45 as of June 1st. I expected that as I got a free speed upgrade back in March from 50 Mbps to 70 Mbps.
I saw no mention of the increase in my May bill that mentioned the other increases. I'm betting since they already "told" us back in March, they aren't telling us again. So, most people who have TV and Internet will see price increases of over $10 a month.

We need more competition in this space. I get that delivering this service isn't cheap, but to see increases on the internet side of almost 10%, and to have the "base" internet package cost $64 (if you own your modem) seems a bit much.

Agreed. The cost to the consumer has been growing much faster than the rate of inflation, and this cannot continue indefinitely. More competition is sorely needed.

I'll admit when I'm wrong. I just got my new bill today and indeed the Broadcast TV fee increased from $4.50 to $7.00 and the Regional Sports fee increased from $3.00 to $5.00 along with my expected internet increase.


This blurb was in my bill. "FEE UPDATE: We wanted to remind you that, effective with this bill,
your monthly Broadcast TV Fee has increased from $4.50 to $7.00,
and your monthly Regional Sports Network Fee has increased from $3.00 to $5.00."


I scrutinize my bill every month and they must have hidden that well in a previous bill. Sad really.

Oddball request for Comcast subs

I noticed that WUMN 17 (Univision) is off the air right now (no signal OTA for 2 days). Comcast uses WUMN instead of the national feed for channel 99 and I think they pick it up OTA

What is showing on channel 99? (Univision, blank screen, other)??

99 is still airing Univision, although I didn't notice any local "legal ID" at the top of the hour just now, so it's possible that they reverted to a national feed.
