If you live in Rochester you're probably stuck with Spectrum for internet and you're about to be paying more for that service. A Spectrum representative told wfla.com, "Spectrum Internet will go up from $54.99 to $59.99/month for current customers who subscribe to Spectrum TV. Spectrum Internet will go from $64.99 to $65.99/month for current customers who do not subscribe to Spectrum TV."

Spectrum's parent company, Charter, says: "Like every business, Charter faces rising costs that require occasional price adjustments." If you haven't been notified about the price hike yet, you will be soon. Customers will begin getting charged the new price on or a little after November 1st.

Consumers wanting other options might be in luck. In August, an Indiana company expressed interest in a possible cable TV franchise in Rochester, and the city council authorized staff to begin the franchise negotiating process. Read more about that here.
