Suddenlink Announces Plans to Enhance Local Service

From Suddenlink Press Release
EUREKA, Calif. (May 26, 2011) – Suddenlink today announced an agreement to use a new, 121-mile fiber-optic route that San-Francisco-based IP Networks, Inc., plans to build in Humboldt County, running from Cottonwood west to Eureka.

Suddenlink is the first local cable company to announce an agreement with IP Networks for use of the new route. IP Networks expects to complete construction in late September, with Suddenlink moving traffic across the route soon thereafter. The construction is being financed, in part, with a grant from the California Advanced Services Fund (CASF), which was established in late 2007.

“Once completed, the IP Networks project will give us what is commonly known as ‘redundancy’ – a second route for Internet and video traffic in and out of the communities we serve, further enhancing the reliability of our services and giving us additional capacity to launch even faster Internet speeds and additional high-definition TV channels,” said Wendy Purnell, Suddenlink’s Director of Operations in Humboldt County.

“We’re dedicated to enhancing broadband connectivity in California, and we’re very pleased that Suddenlink will be using our new fiber network,” said IP Networks Vice President Mary-Lou Smulders. “IP Networks’ unique relationship with the power utility enables us to more easily reach less accessible communities. As broadband demand increases, we look forward to similar projects delivering broadband to rural and other remote communities in the near future.”

This sounds like good news for cable and internet junkies.  It will also be good for business.
