Yup we saw that too. I called them and they said ALL customers saw an increase on Cable internet and some TV rates March 1st, that it was mentioned on one of the previous bills Jan or Feb. They also said that sometime at the end of this month or next month they will be increasing the internet speeds again.

They also added monthly bandwidth allowances that vary from 50 to 400GB per month. I have the Preferred so mine is 200GB right now, but the speed increase is also supposed to increase that bandwidth limit too (doubtful).

Just another way to gouge people. They will keep up until most people can not afford this stuff. It is a luxury not a necessity.

man i'm glad you pointed this out. logged on to check my account and i got hit too. i also had some sort of promotion (that i didn't realize i had in the first place) expire so my bill shot way up. i called in to change some things. got transfered to sales, and ended getting an awesome deal - more service/channels and my bill went down about $17/month. may be worth a call...

Just got visited by the U-verse guy that says separate fiber-optic cable to each house, FREE installation and $29.00 per month for 6 months. Time to try something other than Cox.

Anu ugly U-verse stories yet?

we don't have cox, direct or dish tv we just use the netflix bc we had to pay for our kids braces which is gonna be about how much we paid for our deep sea boat (15,000-18,000) but id care less of watching tv unless its the history channel, discovery or the florida gators play.
