Suddenlink Plans $20 Million North Carolina Investment Program

GREENVILLE, N.C. (April 1, 2013) – Suddenlink expects to make nearly $20 million in capital investments this year in eastern North Carolina, and by the end of the year will have invested nearly $150 million in that area since 2006.

Suddenlink is the third-largest company of its kind in North Carolina, offering cable TV, high-speed Internet, phone and other services. 

“Our 2013 investments in North Carolina will help us further enhance the quantity, quality, and reliability of our video, phone, and Internet services,  including enhancements to our Any-Room DVR service, expansion of our phone service to new areas, the addition of high-definition TV channels, and more,” said Suddenlink Senior Vice President of Operations Phil Ahlschlager. 

In recent years, Suddenlink has rolled out increasingly faster Internet services, with download speeds up to 50 Megabits per second (Mbps) in all of its service areas in North Carolina.  It also completed a fiber-optic network upgrade project in the Rocky Mount, Greenville, Scotland Neck, Enfield and Halifax County areas, and has expanded the availability of video on demand (VOD), WiFi@Home, TV Caller ID, Suddenlink Home Security, TiVo® HD/DVRs, TiVo Stream, and Any-Room DVR service.  The latter allows customers to record, pause, and play back TV in any room.

Suddenlink serves more than 90,000 households and more than 4,000 business customers in North Carolina. Suddenlink-served communities in Greenville, Kinston, Rocky Mount and New Bern are its largest in the state.
