CommScope ( CTV) raised prices for fiber optic cables in its enterprise business segment.

Increase in prices of commodity materials used in fiber optic cables coupled with a rise in the cost of energy and transportation has led to the price escalation, the company said. The new prices are expected to take effect in the second quarter of 2006 and will apply to fiber cables sold under both the Uniprise and Systimax Solutions brands.

"Our ongoing commitment is to offer our customers the most value at a competitive price. However, in light of recent and pending increases in our costs of doing business, we must try to recover our costs.", said the company.
