Time Warner Cable Charter Merger Price Increases

Happy New Year, Time Warner Cable subscribers! Your favorite cable provider just got approval from New York state regulators to merge with fellow cable company Charter and it's going to celebrate by raising your prices... again! As The Albany Times Union reports, TWC "is raising its Internet and TV rates for customers in New York state just a 10 days after getting approval" for its merger with Charter, which has a reputation for being less pricey than other cable companies.
