Suddenlink offers unlimited data for small fee

The rumors have been confirmed – Suddenlink offers unlimited data for small fee for existing customers.  New customers can actually take advantage of a free offer for unlimited data package for the first year.

Suddenlink offers unlimited data

After hearing the rumor, I decided to chat with Suddenlink on the rumor I had heard for a year of free unlimited data and then a small fee after this.  Apparently, this is only for new customers.  For new customers, you can sign up for unlimited data for $0 per month for the first year.  Then the rate is $5 a month for the next year, and then $10 a month for every year after that.

For existing customers, the offer is $5 a month for the first year, and then $10 a month for the years following.  If you want to upgrade your service, you can take advantage of the “new customer” offering and have the first year of unlimited data for $0 a month.

The customer service rep assured me of a couple of things:

  • This is for both upload and download, so no caps on the upload
  • You can decide at any time to do away with the unlimited data on your plan.  There is no contractual obligation for a set time period.


This is a great move in the right direction that Suddenlink offers unlimited data as speeds get faster and faster, the data caps have so far stayed in place.  To have a reasonable option for truly unlimited data for power users and others who stream or who wan to pull or push large amounts of data from their home labs, this is a great option.

For those who flirt with overage charges from Suddenlink every month, this is a great deal.  Typical overage charges are $10 for every 50GB used over your rate plan, so the small monthly unlimited fee would quickly pay for itself.
