Suddenlink Reaches 250,000 Phone Milestone

Suddenlink now counts more than 250,000 active phone lines serving residential and business customers. That’s up from approximately 30,000 lines at the beginning of 2007, before the company expanded phone service to most of its markets.

Suddenlink customers are now placing and receiving up to six million calls a day, about twice as many daily calls as the company’s network handled 14 months ago and six times as many as it did two years ago.

Suddenlink Phone uses IP technology to transport calls over the company’s private, managed, IP-based network. As a standard part of its residential service, Suddenlink offers unlimited local and domestic long-distance calls, plus a set of popular calling features. Suddenlink Phone also provides automatic access to the FCC-mandated Enhanced 911 system and is compatible with most modern alarm monitoring equipment.

Earlier this year, the company launched an enhanced Business Class Phone service for larger commercial accounts with more complex requirements.
