Cablevision Hikes Broadband Fees $5 Per Month
MSO says price will increase average of 3.2% for Optimum online service

The Bethpage, N.Y.-based MSO said the price bump is the first increase on its broadband service in a decade, and said it will make no changes to the price of its cable TV or phone products.
In announcing the change, Cablevision said it has made "significant" investments in its broadband product, including a $140 million DOCSIS network augmentation project.
Cablevision initiated the latest upgrade after it scored poorly on a 2011 test commissioned by the Federal Communications Commission, which found the operator delivered 54% of advertised speeds during peak periods (7-11 p.m. Monday-Friday). On the FCC's test based on data from April 2012, Cablevision was found to have delivered 120% of advertised download speeds and more than 100% of upload speeds.
