Suddenlink ups Internet speed in Truckee

Staff report

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Suddenlink has upgraded its high-speed Internet service in Truckee to a download speed up to 150 Megabits per second (Mbps), and an upload speed up to 7.5 Mbps, the company recently announced.

"This is now the fastest residential Internet service offered in the area," the company said in a press release.

In its March 5 announcement, Suddenlink said existing customers with 15, 30 and 50 Mbps services are being upgraded to and will be notified directly.

Introducing faster Internet speeds is the first phase of "Operation GigaSpeed," which the company announced in August.

"This project will progressively boost Internet speeds and eventually make a 1 Gigabit per-second service available to virtually all of Suddenlink's customers," according to the company.

The three-year program includes an investment of almost $250 million, according to Suddenlink.
