Suddenlink Notices Regarding Rate Changes and Recognizing VeteransFeatured Stories, News Friday, November 8th, 2013
Suddenlink customers in the twin cities are being notified about price changes. Officials say they vary depending on the types of services. Adjustments were necessary due to a variety of factors, including the rising cost of television programming. Suddenlink says they are absorbing some of the 14 percent increase being charged by basic cable networks, which is approximately seven times above the rate of inflation. Suddenlink encourages bundling two or more services, which is currently done by more than six out of ten customers. Prices changes are effective with December bills.
Below is the statement from the Suddenlink corporate office.
We are notifying customers in the area about price changes, effective with December bills. Changes will vary depending on the types of services a customer has.
While we pledge to hold prices as low as possible, the adjustments we’re making are necessary due to the rising cost of TV programming, equipment, insurance, network expenses for Internet service, and other factors. For instance, the fees that channel owners charge for basic cable networks will increase an estimated 14% next year, approximately 7 times greater than the rate of inflation. Suddenlink is absorbing some of this increase and passing along some of it to customers.
We have bundled packages of two or more services that might help off-set these adjustments and potentially save money. More than six out of 10 Suddenlink customers have already taken advantage of such offers by bundling services with us.
And below is an invitation to veterans from the B/CS Suddenlink office.
The Bryan Suddenlink office (located at 4114 E 29th St.) is hosting a ‘Thank a Vet at Work’ program on Veterans Day, starting at 9 a.m. Participants include Bryan Mayor Jason Bienski, State Representative John Raney, State Senator Charles Schwertner’s District Representative Hayden Paul, Congressman Bill Flores Deputy District Director James Edge, and VFW Post 4692 Commander John Velasquez.
