GEORGETOWN, Texas--()--Suddenlink announced today that it has started offering residential customers in several, suburban-Austin communities (Georgetown, Pflugerville, and Leander) its new “High Speed Internet MAX 107.0” service, featuring a download speed up to 107 megabits per second (Mbps) and an upload speed up to 5 Mbps.
“We are pleased to bring cutting-edge technologies to our communities and we will continue our efforts to expand the availability of this and other advanced services.”
Georgetown and nearby communities are the first in the country to receive this new service.
“Based on our research, we believe this residential download speed to be the fastest available in the U.S. today,” said Suddenlink CEO Jerry Kent. “We are pleased to bring cutting-edge technologies to our communities and we will continue our efforts to expand the availability of this and other advanced services.”
The MAX 107.0 service is the result of “Project Imagine,” a new Suddenlink program that calls for approximately $350 million of capital investments nationwide through 2012, above and beyond the company’s traditional capital spending levels. Through “Project Imagine,” the company aims to expand to substantially all Suddenlink communities: video-on-demand service; the capability for up to 200 high-definition (HD) TV channels; and industry-leading DOCSIS 3.0 technology, which enables Internet download speeds of 20, 50, and more than 100 Mbps.
Suddenlink is preparing to launch either MAX 107.0 or MAX 50.0 Internet service in a number of other communities this year, with details to be announced later. (MAX 50.0 service will feature a download speed of up to 50 Mbps.)
