To check the availability of Suddenlink in your area, enter your address at SmartMove.us, or Suddenlink.com. Coverage areas extend across the US, with widespread coverage in Louisiana, West Virginia, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and North Carolina, among other states.

Why is my Suddenlink Internet so slow?

There are a number of factors that influence Internet speed, including overall demand in your area, and high bandwidth-usage devices in your own home. If you are experiencing slow Internet speeds during peak usage times, you may need to upgrade to a more robust Internet package. If speeds are slowest when using multiple devices in your home, consider how often you’ll be using those devices simultaneously to help in deciding if a higher tier plan is in order.

How can I make my Suddenlink Internet faster?

If you regularly experience WiFi speeds below the range outlined in your package, there are several steps you can take to see if your speed improves. These include: rebooting your router and modem; minimizing the number of devices and applications running simultaneously to measure the impact each has on your speed; and relocating your router to a new location – off the floor in an open area where the signal can travel more easily is best. If these options do not solve for your speed concerns, you may want to consider investing in a WiFi extender, or upgrading your router or modem if they have become outdated.
