Is Suddenlink good?

We like Suddenlink service for its competitively priced packages and fast download speeds. And if you’re freaking out because you’re trapped in a bad contract with another provider, Suddenlink offers to buy you out of it for up to $500.

Heads up, though: Suddenlink offers TV only if you bundle it with internet. And if you stream lots of movies or download large files regularly, you might run into some issues with data limits on its slower internet packages.

Suddenlink internet

What internet speeds does Suddenlink offer?

Suddenlink offers download speeds from 100 Mbps to 1,000 Mbps (1 gig).

With fair pricing and high download speeds, Suddenlink internet plans give its biggest competitors—Spectrum, Frontier FiOS, and AT&T Fiber—a run for their money.

Suddenlink’s upload speeds are good unless you’re a YouTube star who puts massive videos on your channel every day. Otherwise, the speeds should be more than enough to update your social media.

If have a need for speed and you’re worried about going over a data cap, Internet 400 or Internet 1 Gig will be a better fit for you. Both have unlimited data.

Not sure which plan is right for you? Learn more about Suddenlink internet service.

A word of caution: Internet 100 and Internet 200 come with monthly data caps from 250 GB to 350 GB. With 250 GB you can stream all nine seasons of Bob’s Burgers in HD, but that’s your internet limit for the month.

Suddenlink TV

If you’re looking for cable TV service without internet, Suddenlink can’t help you. But let’s be real—who doesn’t want internet these days?

A lack of TV-only packages doesn’t mean Suddenlink’s a bad choice. It ranked about average in “2020’s Best TV Providers in Customer Satisfaction.” Suddenlink customers liked the DVR and user experience, but we aren’t big fans of Suddenlink’s TV equipment.

We’ve got a lot more to say on Suddenlink TV service. Check out our in-depth review.

Suddenlink streaming

Suddenlink now offers a deal on Apple TV 4K devices ($10 per month for 18 months) so you can stream TV and movies in multiple rooms of your home. Basically, an Apple TV 4K streaming device connects to your Suddenlink DVR (Altice One), allowing you to access your favorite on-demand streaming services like Netflix and livestream cable TV from Suddenlink.

So, you pay cheap monthly installments on a rad streaming device, and you get to keep it after you pay off the $180. Not too shabby. Finally, a cable company that’s not obsessed with trying to rent you more cable boxes.

Suddenlink channel guide

With Suddenlink’s TV and internet combos, you get one of three channel lineups. Value TV, Select TV, and Premier TV have 225+, 290+, and 340+ channels respectively.

Value TV has top choices like Disney Channel, ESPN, and HGTV. If you’re looking for more family channels, Select TV has Disney Junior and TeenNick. Premier TV’s specialty channels include HBO®, Pac-12 Networks, and Big Ten Network.

Value TV is a good deal, but if you go with one of the larger lineups, a year of STARZ® and SHOWTIME® also comes included.

The right cable channels can make or break your night. Find the Suddenlink channel lineup that has all your favorites.

Suddenlink bundles

Want both internet and TV? Suddenlink offers combinations of the two services at a discounted rate. And if you add home phone to the internet and TV mix, it won’t cost you anything more for the first 12 months.

Looking to save some cash? Check out Suddenlink bundles.

Suddenlink internet + TV packages

Since Suddenlink doesn’t offer TV solo, an internet and TV bundle is going to be the simplest way to get your favorite shows. We recommend bundling with Premier TV because—in addition to having the most channels—it comes with HBO included.

Suddenlink internet + phone packages

A home phone is excellent to have for emergencies. If you’re looking for one in an affordable package, go with Internet 100 + Phone. It’s the cheapest way to stay connected with the world.

Suddenlink internet + TV + phone packages

Like we mentioned earlier, Internet 1 Gig + Premier TV + Phone is Suddenlink’s top tier bundle. You’ll get the best of everything Suddenlink has to offer: fast internet, top TV channels, and unlimited calls.

All that “best of everything” comes with a pretty hefty price tag, though. Sure, Suddenlink includes phone with no additional charges to the TV and internet price. But if you’re looking to save cash, Internet 100 + Value TV + Phone will still take care of most people’s needs.

Suddenlink equipment and features

Suddenlink’s high speeds, prices, and equipment set it apart from the competition.

Suddenlink unique features

Keep these cool things about Suddenlink in mind:

  • 30-day money-back guarantee
  • Well-priced internet plans and bundles
  • Home phone added to internet and TV bundles at no extra cost for 12 mos.
  • Download speeds up to 1,000 Mbps
  • All-in-one internet and TV device available for lease

Suddenlink equipment

With many TV and internet providers, you need a separate DVR, modem, and router. Suddenlink offers all those devices and more in the Altice One.

The Suddenlink DVR/modem/router/streaming device (we know, that’s a lot of slashes) connects your home with one sleek box. With the added benefit of a cloud DVR, you can stream your recordings from anywhere with help from the Altice One mobile app—no sweat.

On top of this, the Suddenlink DVR can record up to 15 shows at once. But it really misses the mark for storage. You’ll be able to keep only 75 hours of HD shows, which is barely enough space for the good seasons of The Office.

Suddenlink deals and promotions

STARZ® and SHOWTIME® included

Right now you can get one year of STARZ® and SHOWTIME® at no extra charge with any Select TV or Premier TV bundle.

Suddenlink TV FAQ

Does Suddenlink have cable TV?

Yes, Suddenlink offers cable TV. FYI: you have to bundle Suddenlink cable TV service with Suddenlink internet service, though.

How much does Suddenlink TV cost?

Suddenlink TV plus internet service costs anywhere between $79.99 per month and $149.99 per month. Sorry, but Suddenlink doesn’t offer TV-only service at this time.

What is Suddenlink’s basic cable price?

Suddenlink basic cable costs $34.99 per month and will get you around 30 channels. Really, it won’t save you much money because you have to bundle Suddenlink TV with internet. That’s why we recommend Suddenlink Value TV plus internet for $79.99 per month. It gets you four times the channels for roughly the same price.

What channels do you get with basic cable?

Suddenlink’s Value TV packages get you Disney Channel, ESPN, Animal Planet, all your local channels, and more. If you consider a channel essential, Value TV probably has it—it’s one of the best basic channel lineups we’ve seen.
