Comcast plans to hike subscription prices in January, the latest company on a long list of pay TV and internet service providers to announce hikes.

The company, which serves roughly 32.2 million users, did not specify the exact amount of the increase on its website but said that the increase will vary according to factors such as a customer’s location or type of cable package. It adds that customers were notified of the change by letter but it did not list the exact amount of the price increases on its FAQs section announcing the hike.
