June 9, 2021 – Altice USA, the provider of Suddenlink broadband, television, and phone service, today announces that as a result of major investments in its advanced broadband infrastructure, the company has launched faster speeds for Suddenlink residential customers in Cushing, Oklahoma. The company’s new 1 Gig speed tier complements Suddenlink’s broadband offerings, which now include 400 Mbps and 200 Mbps service among other options, providing customers with choice and flexibility in selecting which broadband speed is right for them during a time when more people are working and learning remotely.

“Over the last few months, we have made major investments in our Suddenlink network and advanced broadband infrastructure to ensure we’re providing our local communities with fast and reliable high-speed broadband,” said Hakim Boubazine, Altice USA’s Chief Operating Officer and President of Telecommunications. “In today’s remote work and learning environment, more households and businesses are relying on their broadband connection to keep them connected to work, school, customers, friends, and family, and our Suddenlink broadband service makes it all possible.”

The new speed tier is more than six times faster than the highest speed previously offered by Suddenlink to customers in Cushing, Oklahoma. Suddenlink has been investing in its local network to support customers’ growing broadband needs, including powering today’s uber-connected smart homes, streaming content, engaging in video conferences, downloading files, and playing games on connected devices.

“As technological advances continue to evolve, the need for increased data speed directly impacts established and future businesses, in addition to residential customers, and as such, we have been working directly with Suddenlink to increase our internet speed in Cushing,” said Chairman B.J. Roberson, Cushing Board of Commissioners. “We are pleased to join in their announcement of new 1 Gig internet service in Cushing. We know this will be another community difference maker, and we appreciate Suddenlink addressing our communities’ technological needs.”

Altice USA offers a wide range of broadband speeds to meet all needs and budgets, including Altice Advantage Internet, a low-cost 30 Mbps service available to eligible customers for $14.99 per month, and going up to multi-gigabit services for enterprise customers. In addition, the company’s mobile service, Altice Mobile, currently offers customers data, talk and text on a nationwide network with 5G coverage starting at just $14 per line per month.
