Why was my bill higher this month?
If you added any services during the past month you may see an increase in your next billing statement – even if you paid for the 1st month of the new service at the time of installation. The reason for this is that when you pay for a complete month when adding a service – that payment is applied towards the next full month’s service. The next bill you receive would have a pro-rated portion of the new service charges, for whatever days it was active during the month it was installed. For example: if you added a service on the 20th of a month that had 30 days in it – your next bill would include the new service charges for the remaining 10 days of the previous month. Plus the 30 days of the coming month. You always pay a month in advance on your cable bill
You may have been charged a late fee last month
If you have our phone service: – you may have placed calls outside the included “free” calling areas or if you have a limited minute plan – you may have gone over your minutes. You may have placed calls to directory assistance
The reason should be itemized on your statement.
