The charge for Spectrum receivers will rise, from $6.99 to $7.50 monthly.

An increase of $54.99 to $59.99 monthly is planned for Spectrum Internet to current customers who subscribe to Spectrum TV.

An increase from $64.99 to $65.99 per month is set for Spectrum Internet to current customers who do not subscribe to Spectrum TV.

There will be no change to package prices of Spectrum TV or Spectrum Voice.

Numerous media outlets are reporting that Spectrum’s parent company, Charter, has written to municipalities a letter that says in part: “Like every business, Charter faces rising costs that require occasional price adjustments.”
