Suddenlink Communications has upgraded its downstream bandwidth for many of the Arizona customers it acquired as part of its NPG Cable acquisition, a deal which closed last spring.
Suddenlink has been rebranding and conducting network conversions in the Arizona markets in recent weeks (the latter not without brief service outages, according to some local reports). The boost in bandwidth will not cost Suddenlink's new customers anything extra, though the company made clear that customers could see cable TV price hikes in the future if Suddenlink's deals with content companies become more expensive.
Suddenlink also is offering more HD channels, and has plans for other service upgrades and new offers.
