FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – Frontier customers will receive a letter next week informing them of a price increase on their television service.

The increase, depending on your plan, could add between $12 and $30 to your monthly bill. If you have a term agreement, you won’t see any hike in your rate. If your service is month-to-month, you will see the hike. Frontier estimates that about half their Fort Wayne customers will see the hike.

The increase pertains only to television service. Internet and phone services will be unaffected by the rate increase.

Included in next week’s notice will be an option for customers to switch to DirecTV. It’s an option that Frontier is excited about because customers can get free programming services for the remainder of 2011. Customers, if they make the switch, could ultimately save $700 in 2011.

Next week’s letter will also include the option for customers to get a free 32 inch web capable television. Frontier says these televisions are going to revolutionize the way Americans watch TV over the next five years, and they believe their offer will be well-received by the customer.
