About Suddenlink internet

Suddenlink internet plans match our 2019 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 100 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 100 and Internet 200 have 250 GB and 350 GB data allowances respectively.

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.

Our recommended package

Internet 400

  • $54.99/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 100 is still a great choice. Or if you upload large files on the reg, upgrade to Internet 1 Gig—your Twitch streams will look gorgeous.

Perks, cool stuff, and internet deals

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.

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 doesn’t have any internet deals right now, but we’ll let you know when that changes.
