In most Suddenlink markets, the top speeds currently offered are 100 and 150 Mbps; 200 and 400 Mbps; or 200 Mbps and 1 Gbps.
New subscribers to these services and existing customers who elect to get an upgrade will automatically be enrolled in an unlimited plan at no extra charge the first year, an added $5 a month after 12 months, and an added $10 a month after 24 months. Customers currently subscribing to Suddenlink's fastest local services may choose to retain their existing usage-based plans or upgrade to an unlimited plan.
Following its recent acquisition of Suddenlink, Altice USA (Euronext:ATC) reconfirmed its commitment to Operation GigaSpeed and earlier this year confirmed plans to have 1 Gbps service available by the end of 2016 in more than 250 Suddenlink markets representing more than 60% of the company's high-speed Internet customers.
