Why the bill increase for January?

Received my bill statement today only to find it had an increased rate from every month I had paid previously. The bill explanation mentioned that it might be different and to check news from Cox or the Bill Messenger Center for details but I can’t find any explanation anywhere. No I’m not on some discount, new customer plan before anyone asks.

Can someone explain this to me or link me to an actual explanation?

  • I checked my bill and its cost-of-service is the same as my previous.

    If you have an increase, it may be due to your state, county or city imposing or increasing a tax, fee or surcharge for Cox to provide service in your state, county or city.

  • I stand corrected.  I just received my bill.  I wonder why I got it later than you?
