Altice USA (NYSE:ATUS), one of the largest broadband communications and video services providers in the United States, has announced that its ´Economy Internet´ low-cost broadband service is available in both its Optimum and Suddenlink footprints, providing eligible families and senior citizens with access to fast, high-quality internet connectivity at an affordable price, the company said.
The USD 14.99 per month service, which offers broadband speeds of up to 30 Mbps downstream and free in-home WiFi, is now available across the entire Optimum footprint after launching in select areas of the New York region late last year. In addition, the company is going beyond its public interest commitment to Optimum in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut by extending this service to the vast majority of the Suddenlink region so that hundreds of thousands of eligible consumers within the company´s service area have access to fast, affordable internet in their homes.
To raise awareness of this service and promote adoption among qualifying households, Altice USA is partnering with community organizations across both the Optimum and Suddenlink footprints. The company will also promote ´Economy Internet´ through public service announcements and a digital ad campaign. In addition, Altice USA works with hundreds of community centers and libraries to provide free broadband in computer labs and other public spaces, enabling residents with access to high-speed internet at no charge in their communities.
