What Factors Impact Your Television Bill?

Being a local business, 24-7 & West Wisconsin Telcom invests heavily in our community, our employees, our customers and our Fiber Optic Network. We strive to offer the best value possible in communication services, including television packages with the most popular networks at an affordable price.

While we pledge to hold rates as low as possible, we have no control over the substantial increases in the network TV programming fees charged by local television stations like ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW and cable networks like ESPN, TNT, USA, Discovery and Comedy Central. They all charge a fee for every household that receives their channel. These fees have increased dramatically over the last 10 years and are the driving force behind the increases you see on your television bill. We are forced to choose between two tough options — pay the exorbitant fee or lose the network(s) on our channel lineup through a “blackout.”

While we can’t control the broadcaster’s fees – we can control the speed of your Internet and that is why our Fiber Optic Internet Speed begins at 75 Mbps – all with unlimited data, a stronger signal and more devices. It’s all about connections!
