What is Suddenlink Smart WiFi 6?
Suddenlink Smart WiFi 6 is the router technology that powers the new Altice Gateway 6. If you have a Suddenlink Internet 1 Gig plan, you can get a gateway with Smart WiFi 6 for an additional $10 per month.
Suddenlink Smart WiFi 6 is a step up from the Smart WiFi technology in the older Altice Gateway that comes with slower plans. Smart WiFi 6 supports internet speeds up to three times faster, and the signal reaches further than the previous gateway model.
The “smart” part of Smart WiFi 6 means the Altice Gateway 6 will automatically choose which Wi-Fi frequency to connect your devices to so it can have the best signal.
To be more specific, the 5.0 GHz frequency provides a strong connection with nearby devices, and the 2.4 GHz frequency is better for devices further away from your gateway—but you don’t have to remember that because Smart WiFi 6 will do it for you.
