Frontier Communications has yet to notify their customers that they plan a 46% rate hike for their cable TV service.

The company attributes the rate increase to the rising cost of cable programming.

The higher rates were supposed to take effect at the beginning of the year for new customers, and February 18 for current customers with expiring contracts.

But Frontier has delayed sending out formal notifications to its customers while it considers ways to cushion the impact of the higher rates, [Frontier spokeswoman Stephanie] Beasly said. Frontier is still considering its options, she said, so the higher rates won't go into effect on the 18th -- nor on March 1, as some customers had been told.

"There is not a rate increase that will be taking place either of those days," she said. "But there still will be a price increase."
