Comcast price hike does not affect Issaquah
July 13, 2010
Though Comcast intends to raise prices about 5 percent for some Western Washington customers, the coming hike does not affect Issaquah customers.
The city Cable TV Commission and Comcast continue to negotiate a franchise agreement for Issaquah. Under the existing system, separate agreements cover Issaquah.
South Cove and Greenwood Point residents paid higher prices for cable services to a separate company operating under the Comcast brand.
Issaquah annexed the neighborhoods in 2006, and the franchise proposal under consideration unites the city under a single agreement. City officials expect prices to rise under the updated agreement, though the amount remains uncertain.
Cable TV Commission and Comcast officials plan to finalize the agreement in the coming months.
Comcast announced a plan in early July to raise prices for most cable customers Aug. 1.
