Comcast will raise prices for its Internet and television services across the country as of January 1, an announcement that came to light days after the service provider revealed it would expand its Internet data limit. The price increase will affect monthly subscription prices and some fees.
The news about the price increase came first on Reddit, where a user shared an image of the price notification. The exact amount of the increase will depend on which plan you have, with the only exception being a small reduction in the service fee for an additional TV.
Most Xfinity Internet plans, including Performance Starter up to the Gigabit plan, will see an increase of $ 3 / month. The xFi Advantage option will increase from $ 20 / month to $ 25 / month. Meanwhile, Xfinity Home’s security plans will increase by $ 10 / month.
For those who still have pay TV service through Comcast, the rate will increase by $ 5 / month for Choice TV, $ 7.50 / month for Choice TV with TV Box and $ 4.50 / month for the TV baud rate. The price increase is not limited to Internet and cable TV plans.
Several on-demand video subscriptions will also have a price increase, some for a few dollars, others just for a dollar. The impacted services will include AMC + Gaia, UP Faith and Family, WEtv and Galam TV. Likewise, installation will also cost more starting in January at an additional $ 30 / month for professional installation and home service visits, increasing costs to $ 100 / month, respectively.
The price change notification shared on Reddit lists the city of Chicago, but Comcast confirmed to Ars Technica that this change will be implemented for all subscribers in the U.S. However, he noted that the exact price changes for TV service vary based on the market, so the numbers listed in the price list may not be entirely accurate for your city.
