Flow increasing prices next month

Flow customers will have to dig deeper in their pockets come next month as the telecoms giant has announced that they will ­increase prices.

In a notice to its customers on Wednesday, Flow said the 3.5-per cent increase in its Internet and ­cable packages will come into effect on May 1st.

Another notice was sent to customers with multiple cable boxes via e-mail on Wednesday.

Flow said: “The current external economic pressures are now such that as a business we must unfortunately slightly increase our prices. Therefore, from May 1, 2023, there will be a nominal increase in your cable box monthly rental fee if you have three or more cable boxes at your home. Rental for the first box remains free.” Flow further stated that the new rental price for the third cable box and other subsequent cable boxes will be $50.63.

In March 2018 the company increased its broadband packages.

It said then the price adjustments were necessary as it continued to invest heavily in the upgrade of its network.
