At least they're being honest

Unlike some other cable operators that blame the rate increases solely on programming costs.

Hikes suck but...

They're network performs (almost) flawlessly. I pay for 15m/1.5m and ALWAYS see that speed. There's pretty much zero downtime, and after Frontier bought out Verizon around here, a ton of my clients have switched to Suddenlink and couldn't be happier. I know nothing of their TV service, but data-wise, they're the company to go with around here.

Why the priced of the rented cable box go up?

Why the priced of the rented cable box go up?
When some of the boxes have been out there for years and some times event re rented time and time again.

How can it possibly "cost" anything to cut the cord?
Does your cable company extract an ETF?

prices will be raised on HSI. You don't see that do you? I don't think anyone on here does. You leave TV; they raise HSI. TWC did that. Their rate increases went for both TV and HSI. so they got twice the amount last year from the areas that were raised- which was 95% of their customer base across the country.

And cord cutting? lol. no such thing. Can NOT be proven.

be prepared for your HSI to go up. If it didn't it will soon with TWC as rates are more standard across the board.

build one and have it certified by Cable Labs. also they raise them so they can buy NEW ones.
