ANCHORAGE (AP) -- AT&T Alascom is seeking a 24 percent rate increase, matching the increase requested by ACS Anchorage.
The AT&T Alascom request was filed Oct. 30 with the state Regulatory Commission of Alaska for a rate increase that would take effect Nov. 29.
According to the commission, Alascom wants the same increase ACS requested. If ACS is granted a lesser amount, Alascom will adjust its increase downward. If the ACS rate increase is denied, the commission said, Alascom will withdraw its request.
A 24 percent increase would boost the basic rate for residential service from $9.70 to $12.05.
The increase also would boost the price for custom calling features, nonrecurring charges, construction services and directory services.
The commission is taking comment on the proposal until Nov. 22.
