A FCC report released Friday has found that cable prices are rising at four times the rate of inflation over the past decade. Basic cable service prices increased by 6.5%[to $22.63] for the 12 months ending January 1, 2013.

Expanded basic cable prices increased by 5.1%[to $64.41] for those 12 months, and at a compound average annual rate of 6.1% over an 18-year period.

And T-W continues to abuse Rochester subscribers.

Once the hook is set, they are reeling in the fish. Increase costs are do the the ridiculous price increases the producers of the media are demanding of the cable companies. Now they want to charge certain companies a premium to use a fast lane on the InterNet. Where will this stop??.

Look at the garbage on T-W that passes for a "channel". Tons of bogus religious crap, reality shows that are very cheap to produce (follow a moron around with a camera) and assorted other non-watchable stuff.

Time to force our individual town boards to push back on T-W franchises, which they grant, and to some extent control (they don't, they just renew them and collect their cut).

When Comcast takes over, they'll kick the fees out of us faster than T-W is already doing. The FCC is not doing us any good, but has been a friend of the cable providers.
