MAX 107.0 and MAX 50.0 Service Widens

Today residential customers in Bossier City (including Barksdale Air Force Base), Haughton, Lake Charles and Sulphur, La., and Nixa and Ozark, Mo., can get Suddenlink’s High Speed Internet MAX 107.0 service. MAX 107.0 features a download speed up to 107 megabits per second (Mbps) and an upload speed up to 5 Mbps, the fastest residential service in these communities and among the fastest in the country offered by a major Internet service provider.

These communities are the first in Louisiana and Missouri to receive this service. It was first launched in the Georgetown, Pflugerville and Leander, Texas, area. Subsequently, MAX 107.0 was introduced in Tyler, Whitehouse, Amarillo, Tulia, Lubbock, Post, Shallowater and Wolfforth, Texas, in Gallia, Meigs (Ohio), Mason and Jackson (West Virginia) counties, and most recently in Midland, Texas.

Suddenlink also began offering High Speed Internet MAX 50.0 service to residential customers in Alexandria, Pineville and Natchitoches, La., and Branson, Mo. MAX 50.0 features download speeds of up to 50 Megabits per second (Mbps), the fastest residential Internet service offered in these communities.

This spring, MAX 50.0 rolled out in more than 15 Texas communities. Before that, the service was introduced in a number of other Suddenlink cities, including Tarboro and New Bern, N.C., as well as several towns in other states.

These launches are part of Project Imagine, Suddenlink’s ongoing investment program. We will continue to announce launches of new and enhanced services as they are confirmed.

Suddenlink Supports Leesville Lions Club Telethon

Suddenlink helped sponsor the Leesville, La., Lions Club Telethon, which raised more than $20,000 for the Louisiana Lions Camp. The camp serves youth with special needs, diabetes and pulmonary disorders.

The Leesville Daily Leader reported Lions Club President Kevin Rhodes’ gratitude to the event’s corporate sponsors.

“Suddenlink provided everything to us for free,” said Rhodes. “Otherwise we’d be talking about this to ourselves.”

“This has been an ongoing partnership for more than 30 years,” said Leesville System Operations and Support Manager Larry Dykes. “We have always provided free channel space to air the telethon. About five years ago, we began providing Internet service as well, which allows the telethon to stream online. This was the first year they asked us to be the sole communications provider, so we provided phone lines to handle all the call volume.”
