Altice usa announces deridder becomes suddenlink gig city


Other Suddenlink Internet Speeds Have Been Increased at No Added Charge

DeRIDDER, La. (Sept. 27, 2016) – Altice USA announced today that it is now offering Suddenlink internet service with an up to 1 Gigabit per second download speed in DeRidder. The company also announced today that it has increased certain other Suddenlink residential internet speeds at no additional cost to customers.

“Today’s announcement is the next step in Operation GigaSpeed, the company-wide plan we announced in August of 2014,” said Altice USA Vice President of Suddenlink Operations Robbie Lee. “In sharp contrast to other large providers, which are offering a Gigabit service primarily to a few neighborhoods in large urban markets, we’re pleased to be making our Suddenlink Gigabit service available in all of the neighborhoods and to all of the households and businesses we serve throughout DeRidder.”

Lee added that local business owners also will have access to the new Gigabit service, along with Suddenlink customized services the company offers that are capable of multi-Gigabit speeds.

In addition to launching the 1 Gigabit internet service today, residential high-speed internet customers with current download speeds up to 75 and 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) have been moved to services with download speeds up to 100 and 200 Mbps, respectively, at no added charge. The standard Suddenlink residential internet download speeds in DeRidder are now up to 50, 100, and 200 Mbps, along with the new up to 1 Gig service.

In Louisiana, Suddenlink 1 Gigabit internet services are now available in Lake Charles and Sulphur, Bossier City and nearby communities, Alexandria and Pineville, as well as DeRidder.
