Cox Communications announces price increases

Consumers to pay more for several cable, phone and Internet services

Cox Communications is raising its prices on several of its cable, phone and Internet services beginning in March, the company told subscribers Tuesday.

“Today’s prices reflect the cost of programming, which has gone up nearly 10 percent from 2009 to 2010 as well as the increased costs of doing business which have escalated dramatically in the past 12 months,” Cox said in an e-mail to subscribers.

For residents in the Las Vegas Valley, the price of Cox Limited Basic Cable, which includes 44 channels of local broadcast, will increase by about $3 to $16.04 a month.

For subscribers to receive all 44 channels, an HD digital converter box is needed and that price is increasing by $2.25 to $7 a month.

Cox Preferred Basic Service, which includes 96 channels, will also increase by about $3, bringing the total to $54 a month. Increases in prices for premium channels will range from $1 to $4.49 a month, depending on the number of channels.

Both the HD receiver and the HD DVR will now cost $2.25 more a month. The price of Cox DVR service, however, will decrease by about $2.

Basic monthly telephone service will increase by $2.59 to $12.99 a month. Cox high-speed Internet service is also going up $2 a month.

The company is raising prices in several regions, including Southern California, where prices are increasing between 3.6 and 10 percent, the the Orange County Register reported last week.
