Altice USA Extends Low-Cost Broadband Service across the Country

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Altice USA (NYSE:ATUS), one of the largest broadband communications and
video services providers in the United States, today announces that its
‘Economy Internet’ low-cost broadband service is available in both its
Optimum and Suddenlink footprints, providing eligible families and
senior citizens with access to fast, high-quality internet connectivity
at an affordable price.

The $14.99 per month service, which offers broadband speeds of up to 30
Mbps downstream and free in-home WiFi, is now available across the
entire Optimum footprint after launching in select areas of the New York
region late last year. In addition, the company is going beyond its
public interest commitment to Optimum in New York, New Jersey and
Connecticut by extending this service to the vast majority of the
Suddenlink region so that hundreds of thousands of eligible consumers
within the Company’s service area have access to fast, affordable
internet in their homes.

“As the internet becomes increasingly important for education and
accessing critical information and services, Altice USA is pleased to
expand our low-cost broadband service to connect even more families and
seniors across our U.S. footprint,” said Dexter Goei, Altice USA
Chairman & CEO. “We remain committed to supporting programs that help
bridge the digital divide within our local communities, and ensuring
that consumers across the country have access to affordable internet
connectivity is a major step in reaching that goal.”

To raise awareness of this service and promote adoption among qualifying
households, Altice USA is partnering with community organizations across
both the Optimum and Suddenlink footprints. The Company will also
promote ‘Economy Internet’ through public service announcements and a
digital ad campaign. In addition, Altice USA works with hundreds of
community centers and libraries to provide free broadband in computer
labs and other public spaces, enabling residents with access to
high-speed internet at no charge in their communities.
