Cable bills on the rise next year

Comcast is raising prices again. The company said today that starting in January, the average customer’s bill in Washington will go up by about 4 percent. There will be no increases for high-speed Internet or digital voice services, however.

Comcast also said it will hire 350 more service technicians and customer service representatives. Construction is under way on a new customer service center in Lynnwood, which is expected to open in July, and Comcast said it’s planning to hire nearly 300 more people in 2007.
