The company's "Operation Gigaspeed," announced last August, has been accelerating lately, with about two dozen launches since July. Operation Gigaspeed is intended to make 1 Gbps services available in 90% of Suddenlink's markets by the end of 2017. Andy Parrott, the MSO's corporate vice president of technical operations, said some of the deployments are based on DOCSIS 3.0, while others - mainly greenfield buildouts - use fiber to the home (FTTH).
In addition to today's announcement, since July, Suddenlink has launched gigabit service in the following markets:
- Arkansas: Jonesboro, Russellville
- Arizona: Flagstaff
- Missouri: Nixa and Ozark
- North Carolina: Greenville and Rocky Mount
- Oklahoma: Enid and Stillwater
- Texas: Abilene, Andrews, Big Spring, Bryan, College Station, Huntsville, Kingwood, Lubbock, Lufkin, Midland, and Terrell
