This fee applies to all Internet customers, with the exception of Altice Advantage Internet customers.
What is the Promotion Credit?
When our rates changed in early 2020, we applied a credit to many customers’ bills to help minimize the impact of the rate increases for their products and services. This “Promotion Credit” can change at any time unless otherwise noted on your bill.
How can I know about changes to my bill or packages?
On the second page of your bill, there is a “Suddenlink Updates” section. We regularly update this section with important notices about your account, packages, and pricing.
