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.
