Cable and Internet Rates
Under federal law the City is prevented from regulating cable rates except for the price of basic cable, installation and some rental charges. As a small cable operator, Wave is not subject to any rate regulation. The table below provides the rates for selected cable and Internet services for 2013. Franchise fees, taxes and other fees may apply, but are not reflected in these rates. To see Historic Cable and Internet Rates for Selected Services between 2005-2012 click here.
