MetroCast rates going up
Like everything else, it’s going to cost you more to watch movies, surf the Internet or make a phone call, if you’re a MetroCast customer. The utility is sending out notices in April bills announcing the rate changes, which go into effect July 1. Most single-line items are going up a dollar or two.
