Suddenlink to invest $250 million in gigabit-speed service

St. Louis-based Suddenlink will invest about $250 million in an effort to increase Internet speeds for most of its customers. Calling the initiative “Operation GigaSpeed,” Suddenlink is looking to increase web speeds up to one gigabit per second.

Suddenlink chairman and CEO Jerry Kent said his company, the nation’s seventh-largest cable provider, will differ from companies like Google and AT&T in that it plans to target small and mid-sized markets and rural areas with its gigabit-speed service.
