Telenet maintains price hike despite protests

Tuesday 2 December 2014 | 10:15 CET | News
Telenet has resisted calls to withdraw its planned price increase for January, despite receiving around 10,000 complaints, Totaal TV reports. The annual price increase is needed to offset higher costs, the cable operator said. Content costs have increased by almost 7 percent, and the company is also investing in expanding its Wi-Fi network and upgrading the cable network. Customers who do no accept the higher prices are free to change provider.
