Comcast raising rates on Oct. 1

Prepare to start paying more for certain XFINITY Internet and TV services on Oct. 1.

Comcast is notifying subscribers about the price changes in the September bills that have been sent out.

For example, the cost for “Performance Internet” service will be $69.95 in October, up 4½ percent. The cost of that Internet service with TV or voice service will go up to $56.95, for an increase of 7.6 percent.

Julianne Phares, Comcast external affairs manager in Albuquerque, said prices are rising to cover faster Internet service and other costs.

“We continue making investments in our network and technology to give customers more for their money, including more video across platforms, better experiences like X1 and faster Internet service,” she said in an email. “We periodically need to adjust prices due to increases we incur in programming, business costs and new technology.”

She pointed out that there are no increases for Limited Basic, Digital Preferred or Internet Essentials services.

On average, customer bills nationwide will increase by 3.4 percent, she said.
