Any electricians out there? Panel upgrade!

Have a question for any electricians out there! What needs to be done to upgrade from a 60 amp fuse box to a 100 amp panel? Is it a mtter of replacing the fuse box with a 100 amp panel or does the wire have to be upgraded as well as the meter box? Would anything less then 100 amp wire be ran to the house? Is the wire ran for a 60 amp fuse box able to carry 100 amps? Any help is appreciated. Thank You!

Any and all wire will need to be able to handle 100 amps. Also the meter base may need to be upgraded. 100 amps is the min. required for a house. The poco wires may be able to handle the upgrade, but you will need to contact them.
