(Ars Technica) — Charter Communications, which provides cable TV and internet services under its Spectrum brand, is raising prices.

Ars Technica reports that Charter confirmed the rate hikes across its 41-state territory, which includes many parts of Kentucky.

“The price of Spectrum Internet reflects the dramatically faster speeds and investments we’ve made in reliability and quality,” Charter told Ars.

The list of price increases include:

  • Broadcast TV surcharge will go up from $8.85 to $9.95 a month.
  • Spectrum Receivers (i.e. cable boxes) will go from $6.99 to $7.50 a month.
  • Standard internet price will increase from $54.99 to $59.99 a month for broadband customers who also subscribe to Charter’s TV service.
  • Standard internet price for broadband-only customers will increase from $64.99 to $65.99 a month.
  • Digital adapter price will increasing from $4.99 to $5.99 a month.
  • An à la carte Latino TV channel package will increasing from $7.99 to $8.99 a month.

Internet price changes won’t immediately affect customers who have contracts with promotional pricing, but those customers will have to pay the new prices after their promotions end, Charter said.
