Beware of Spectrum sneaky rate increases

Beware of Spectrum sneaky rate increases

Forman Phillips, Ballson Spa


Spectrum, formerly Time Warner Cable, advertises its services as superior because customers don’t have to sign a contract. Here’s what Spectrum means by “no contract.”

I have had the same cable service package -- basic internet, telephone, and television -- for over 15 years. Between July 2017 and May 2018, shortly after Spectrum took over Time Warner, my cable bill has increased 37 percent. And that increase has been sporadic; one month it increases a few dollars; the next it stays the same.

In Spectrum-speak, “no contract” means Spectrum can raise your rate whenever it wants to however much it wants. Beware. They will.
