    Suddenlink offers free internet for K12 and college students during the new coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

    Update 3/16/20: Because of growing concerns over the spread of COVID-19 (referred to widely as “the coronavirus”), Suddenlink is offering free internet for students and households with students. Some rules apply, though: you must be a new customer and live in a Suddenlink service area. Call 888-633-0030 today for service.

    Likewise, Suddenlink won’t terminate service or impose late fees on any of its customers during the new coronavirus pandemic.

    Are Suddenlink internet plans good?

    Suddenlink internet plans match our high-speed standards at low prices that made us say, “Wait, they’re going how low?”

    If you don’t use a lot of devices in your home, the base package Internet 200 makes buffering a distant memory. And the largest package, Internet 1 Gig, is great for big families who want to download movies in less time than it takes to microwave their pizza rolls.

    Suddenlink loses some cool-kid points for its monthly data caps, though. Internet 200 has a restrictive 350 GB data cap.

    That won’t be a problem for everyone, but our gamer friends should pick Suddenlink’s unlimited internet plans like Internet 400 or Internet 1 Gig. Otherwise, downloading patches and new games puts you at risk of paying $10 for every 50 GB you go over your limit.

    Pros and cons of Suddenlink internet


    • Download speeds up to 940 Mbps
    • Competitive pricing
    • Unlimited data packages available
    • 30-day money-back guarantee
    • No contracts


    • Data caps as low as 350 GB/mo.
    • $10 charge for every 50 GB over limit

    Our recommended Suddenlink internet package

    Internet 400

    • $40.00/mo. for 12 mos.
    • 400 Mbps download speed
    • 40 Mbps upload speed
    • Unlimited data

    If you’re worried about going over a data cap, jump straight to this package. But Internet 400 has more than unlimited data going for it.

    With its high speeds, you can work all your smart home gadgets and host dozens of internet-surfing friends at the same time—and all without noticing the tiniest bit of buffering.

    But if price is your biggest concern, Internet 200 is still a great choice—although there’s a crummy 350 GB data limit. Or if you upload large files on the reg, upgrade to Internet 1 Gig—your Twitch streams will look gorgeous.

    Suddenlink internet add-ons

    Suddenlink’s fast speeds and low prices are attractive enough by themselves. But if you’re interested in more flare, the Altice One is just what you’re looking for.

    Suddenlink internet equipment

    The Altice One is your Suddenlink Wi-Fi solution. You can rent this modem/router device for $10 per month.

    If you have a big home and you’re worried about getting signal throughout, check out the Altice One Mini. It can extend your Wi-Fi reach further, which is perfect for getting signal in the far-off corners of your house.

    We’re impressed that the Altice One also works as a TV box, DVR, and streaming device. So if you’re bundling with TV, you won’t have to worry about finding a place for extra equipment.

    Suddenlink internet deals

    Because of the spread of the coronavirus, Suddenlink is currently offering free internet for 60 days for students and homes with students. Basically, you must be a new customer and live in a Suddenlink service area to qualify. Call 888-633-0030 today to set up service.

    Suddenlink vs. AT&T internet

    One of Suddenlink’s biggest competitors is AT&T. The two companies cross over in multiple states, including Texas, California, and Arkansas.

    When you compare the two, keep in mind that AT&T offers two different types of internet service: fiber and DSL. If you’re in an AT&T Fiber area, AT&T’s internet plans usually cost less, have faster upload speeds, and offer a more reliable connection. But DSL tends to be less reliable and slower than Suddenlink’s cable internet.

    We think you’ll prefer AT&T Fiber service over Suddenlink internet, thanks to AT&T’s fast internet speeds, unlimited data, and high customer satisfaction. But if only AT&T DSL is available in your area, Suddenlink’s fast speeds are likely the better option.

    Suddenlink vs. Frontier internet

    Suddenlink and Frontier compete to be your favorite provider in Texas, West Virginia, and several other states. Frontier FiberOptic plans cost about the same as Suddenlink’s cable internet plans, but Frontier’s unlimited data, included router, and faster upload speeds make it the better deal.

    But, like AT&T, Frontier also has a large DSL network—and it’s just the pits. Even though Frontier’s DSL plans also have unlimited data, they’re overpriced for the speeds you’ll get. Stick to Suddenlink if DSL is the only Frontier option in your area.
