Suddenlink offers 107 Mbps downloads to Texans

Suddenlink residential subscribers in the suburban Austin, Texas communities of Georgetown, Pluferville and Leander are getting access to broadband speeds of 107 Mbps downstream, which is 7 Mbps faster than the proposed National Broadband Plan. Of course for the critics, the upstream is limited to 5 Mbps. Nothing's perfect.

In a news release, Suddenlink CEO Jerry Kent said the speeds should be "the fastest available in the U.S. today" for residential customers and result from a $350 million capital investment program nationwide called "Project Imagine."

Suddenlink said it is preparing to launch either MAX 107.0 (the 107 Mbps service, of course) or MAX 50.0 (50 Mbps downstream) in a number of other communities this year.
