highspeedinternetSuddenlink Launches 50-Meg Internet Service in Mammoth Lakes and Bishop (press release)

 Suddenlink today announced it has begun offering its new High-Speed Internet 50.0 service in Mammoth Lakes and Bishop, featuring a download speed up to 50 Megabits per second (Mbps), the fastest residential Internet service in the community.

High-Speed Internet 50.0 is enabled by Suddenlink’s deployment of industry leading technology called DOCSIS 3.0 and recent equipment upgrades in our local office that provide more capacity to meet bandwidth demands. The new Internet service will add another choice to Suddenlink’s three existing Bishop services – Suddenlink High-Speed Internet 3.0, 15.0 and 30.0.

All Suddenlink High-Speed Internet services include up to 10 e-mail addresses, access to e-mail via WebMail, personal WebSpace and Spam Blocker.  Suddenlink also offers wireless home networking called WiFi@Home, with enough power to connect all customer devices to Suddenlink High-Speed Internet.  Technical support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

More information about Suddenlink services is available by going to and entering an address and zip code; by visiting the company’s store at 201 E. Line St. in Bishop; or by calling toll-free 866-269-4386.

    Thank you Suddenlink for taking advantage of all the new fiber optic cable that Praxis laid. I wonder when and if Verizon will start using it!

    But please, Suddenlink, can you upgrade your TV service? You are at least a decade behind Dish and Direct TV.

    So what is taking so long to get high speed internet to their subscribers?

    The only thing I understand in this article is “high speed internet”. Everything else is just jibberish

    RE: sugar magnolia. I lived in Bishop from 1971 to 2005. We now live in Leander Texas and subscribe to SuddenLink. The high speed internet is amazing and they are in the process of upgrading the TV service which is actually pretty good here. I am surprised to hear they are in the Bishop area now , but their market area is smaller communities and they bring in their own equipment so it’s local. Very popular here .

      I’ve heard rumor they are going to upgrade their TV service, but who knows when. I think it’s time to try going without TV, I think I can do it!

        I threw away my TV 5 years ago. I just can’t watch the stupid.

        I do like some movies though — as long as they don’t have exploding cars or robots or superheros or people getting shot — and the list goes on…

          Ken…Your not missing much,unless your a sports fan…..It amazes me how many phony,scripted “reality ” shows are on the T.V. now….even on the stations like Discovery,History,TruTV,A&E, that used to broadcast the real and intresting stuff,court trials,etc…now we get to scroll through the phony repo shows,the scripted bounty hunter shows,the families surviving in Alaska,the gold-hunters…….about the only REAL reality shows left are a list of two….and not really reality shows anyway….Cold Justice and The First 48,and that’s it….the rest are make believe.

    Internet speed claims are a marketing scam. We had Suddenlink at home that should be 15m but aveaged 7m. Upgraded to 30 megs average 17m. So if they now offer 50 we may get the 30 we were promised and pay for!

    • Recidi May 11, 2014 at 11:49 am #

      I’m paying for 30 and getting 30. If you’re not getting what you’re paying for, it’s likely you have bad wiring in your house, something on your computer (like malware) is bogging your connection down, or someone in your house is constantly downloading/streaming.

      Keep on them Tim, I had to have suddenlink out two extra times, but now I pay for 30 and get 30. I have no complaints with their internet at all (I don’t do much uploading), it’s nice and fast! I did pay $120 for my own modem/router though.

      Hi Timtraynor – Thomas with Suddenlink here. I’m sorry to hear that you have been experiencing issues with your internet service. I’d be happy to look into this for you. Feel free to email me directly at thomas-AT-suddenlink-DOT-com. Thanks, -Thomas

        It would be nice if was this responsive. Their last time estimate was August of last year!

        How about just giving an accurate and realistic response as to when customers can expect to be hooked up to Digital 395 and get the faster internet speeds?

        There has been little or no comunication to customers for well over 6 months.

    We also use Schatnet at our motel in Lee Vining. Internet is so slow(300k) we had to get a Verizon LTE router that tests at 30 megs to be able to take reservations. Spoke to Schatnet Friday
    and it could be months before they use the Obamanet/Digital 395 fiber. How is it thst my cell phone can get speeds of 20 megs plus but local internet is a joke?

    I’m not sure what everyone is complaining about. I’m paying for 30 mbps through Suddenlink and that’s exactly what I’m getting. My only complaint is the corporate office throttling the upload speed. 30 mpbs for download speed, but 2.0 for up? Makes no sense.
