Fiber Deal Will Enhance Humboldt Co. Services

Suddenlink today announced an agreement to use a new, 121-mile fiber-optic route that San-Francisco-based IP Networks, Inc., plans to build in Humboldt County, California. IP Networks expects to complete construction in late September, with Suddenlink beginning use soon thereafter.

Suddenlink Humboldt County Director of Operations Wendy Purnell said: “Once completed, the IP Networks project will give us what is commonly known as ‘redundancy’ – a second route for Internet and video traffic in and out of the communities we serve, further enhancing the reliability of our services and giving us additional capacity to launch even faster Internet speeds and additional high-definition TV channels.”
