First Communities Receive Up to 1 Gig Service

Yesterday, Suddenlink began offering customers in four communities its new up to 1 Gigabit per second Internet service. Bryan-College Station, Texas; Nixa, Mo.;  and Greenville and Rocky Mount, N.C., are the first Suddenlink-served areas to receive this new service.

The up to 1 Gigabit service is a part of “Operation GigaSpeed,” a company-wide plan announced last August. As part of Operation GigaSpeed, Suddenlink introduced a first phase of Internet speed increases in various communities late last year and earlier this year.

In addition to making the up to 1 Gigabit service available, Suddenlink is boosting other speeds.  Residential Internet customers in the listed communities with current download speeds up to 75 and 100 Megabits per second (Mbps) will be moved to services with download speeds up to 100 and 200 Mbps, respectively, at no added charge.

Renovated Retail Store Opens in Bryan

College Station, Texas, Mayor Nancy Berry, Chamber of Commerce officials, and local Suddenlink employees cut a ceremonial ribbon last Friday to mark the opening of Suddenlink’s newly renovated retail store at 4114 East 29th St. in Bryan.

The store, outfitted with new furnishings and bright green-and-blue décor, provides a base of operations for approximately 55 employees and a new experience for Bryan-College Station customers, with hands-on interactive displays demonstrating Suddenlink services. Counters no longer separate sales personnel from customers, allowing more personal interaction. A large new Suddenlink sign stands outside the location.

Since last September, Suddenlink has unveiled new or renovated stores in Payson, Ariz.; Arkadelphia, Jonesboro, El Dorado and Russellville, Ark.; Alexandria, Natchitoches and Ruston, La.; Branson and St. Joseph, Mo.; Stillwater, Okla.; Abilene, Conroe, Little Elm and Lubbock, Texas; and Point Pleasant, W. Va.

Suddenlink Partners With C-SPAN Bus Tour

Residents in four of Suddenlink’s Texas communities are among the first to experience C-SPAN’s Campaign 2012 Bus. The “Road to the White House” tour, named after C-SPAN’s signature political program, rolled into A&M Consolidated High School in College Station and nearby Bryan High School yesterday. Today, it stopped at Conroe and Willis High Schools in Conroe. Victoria East and West High Schools are scheduled to host the bus tomorrow.

The Campaign 2012 Bus travels the country to promote C-SPAN’s extensive resources and political coverage, giving visitors an opportunity to learn more about the U.S. political process.

C‑SPAN, created by the cable television industry, is generally available to Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
