Suddenlink planning millions capital investments

Suddenlink expects to make approximately $20 million in capital investments this year in Oklahoma.

Suddenlink is the second-largest company of its kind in Oklahoma, offering cable television, high-speed Internet, phone and other services.

The company is working on a 521-mile fiber-optic network in the state. When completed in 2015, the network will connect with the company’s national network and further enhance the reliability of its services in Oklahoma, and make them less dependent on other carriers, according to a news release from Suddenlink.

“Our 2014 investments in Oklahoma also will help us keep ahead of the demands of a growing number of customers who want faster Internet speeds, the ability to get our new Any-Room TV services on mobile devices, home security services and more,” said Todd Cruthird, Suddenlink senior vice president of operations.  

In recent years, Suddenlink has rolled out increasingly faster Internet services, with download speeds up to 50 megabits per second (Mbps) in various communities, and increased the number of high-definition TV channels.  

The local service provider also has begun offering online video and expanded the availability of video on demand (VOD), wireless home networking, TV Caller ID, Suddenlink Home Security, TiVo® HD/DVRs, and Any-Room DVR service that allows customers to record, pause and play back TV in any room. Other enhancements now allow customers to stream TV shows around the house wirelessly on iPod Touch, iPads and iPhones and also transfer digital video recordings to these devices.

Suddenlink serves approximately 68,400 households and more than 4,200 business customers in Oklahoma. In addition to Enid, Suddenlink provides services in Stillwater, Muskogee, Chickasha, Henryetta, Seminole, Pauls Valley, Alva, Purcell, Woodward, Anadarko, Fort Sill, Perry and Sallisaw.
