ALBANY, GA (WALB) - If you are a Starz subscriber, or Primary DVR customer, your bill will go up one dollar a month beginning August 9th. And if you opt to pay your bill over the phone, it'll cost you five dollars.

Dougherty County commissioners say they are shocked that rates are going up and they don't think Mediacom's service justifies the increase.

"The bottom line is we're not getting what we pay for from a service standpoint," said County Comm. Chairman Jeff Sinyard. "In any business if you're going to raise your rates, you certainly have to provide the service.  You certainly have to do the things you're supposed to do to keep your customers happy."

Mediacom sent the notice to increase rates to the county commission, but the commission does not approve rates set by the company.
