Charter is raising prices for multiple Spectrum home internet plans, including its base plan.
The company told Ars Technica it is raising prices by $5, a move that is expected to impact some 9.5 million customers.
“The price for Spectrum Internet reflects the cost of delivering the best value in broadband for your family: 300Mbps starting speeds with no modem fees, data caps or contracts,” the company said.
The new prices are $79.99 for 300Mbps download speed, $99.99 for 500Mbps, and $119.99 for 1Gbps.
While the company says it is the first price hike since December 2020, it’s not likely to go over well with customers at a time when the economy is putting a strain on people’s wallets.
