Suddenlink’s 1-Gig Train Keeps Rolling

Suddenlink Communications announced last week on its official blog that the MSO has rolled out its residential 1-Gig service to three more areas: Georgetown, Texas; Lake Charles, La.; and St. Joseph, Mo..

Suddenlink, which is being acquired by Altice Group,introduced its 1-Gig (downstream) offering, paired with a 50 Mbps upstream, in July using DOCSIS 3.0 technology. The standalone offering runs about $109 per month, but comes at a reduced price when paired with other Suddenlink services.

All of Suddenlink’s residential broadband services come with usage-based policies that charge extra for additional buckets of data if customers exceed their monthly allotments.  The top data plan posted online is fitted with a monthly soft cap of 550 gigabytes.

With the latest trio of markets included, here’s an updated list of areas where Suddenlink has rolled out its residential gigabit offering:

-Arkansas: Jonesboro, Russellville.

-Arizona: Flagstaff.

-Louisiana: Bossier City and Lake Charles.

-Missouri: Nixa, Ozark, and St. Joseph.

-North Carolina: Greenville and Rocky Mount

-Oklahoma: Enid and Stillwater
