Altice commits to Suddenlink's 1-Gig deployment plan

After closing on its $9.1 billion purchase of Suddenlink Communications, Altice NV has committed to following through on the MSO's plans to deploy 1-Gig services across 60 percent of its footprint by year-end. 

Altice will also move forward with Suddenlink's plans to upgrade more than 70 percent of its broadband customers to speeds of at least 400 Mbps. 

"Investment in infrastructure is at the heart of the Altice business model," said Altice USA Co-president and CFO Charles Stewart. "In order to offer the best services and speeds to our customers, we're investing more than $4 billion per year in our networks around the world. Forward-thinking programs like Operation GigaSpeed fit perfectly with this commitment."  Release.
