Comcast is raising its TV and Internet rates for the second time this year for Oregon customers.

The cable company raised its standard TV rates by 4.8 percent, or $3 a month, beginning with November bills. The monthly package now costs $66 in Oregon and Southwest Washington, plus a few dollars in additional fees that vary by city. 

Internet rates are going up, too, between $2 and $4 a month. The monthly cost of Comcast’s “Performance” Internet service is climbing to $49, up from $45, for subscribers who also have Comcast TV. The company said it’s also boosting download speeds to 15 megabits per second, from 12 mbps.

Comcast last raised rates in January, when the cost of a standard package went up 5.1 percent. This is the first time Comcast has raised its Oregon rates twice in the same calendar year.
