As part of the company's commitment to keeping its customers and communities connected, Altice USA is proud to participate as a provider in the Federal Communication Commission's Emergency Broadband Benefit Program, which will provide eligible Optimum and Suddenlink residential customers with a monthly credit up to $50 monthly (up to $75 on Tribal lands) towards their broadband service and associated equipment rental charges. The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program will end when the fund runs out of money, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.

Altice USA has been committed to bridging the digital divide to ensure that more residents within the Optimum and Suddenlink footprints have access to high-quality reliable broadband service, including through the company's low-cost Altice Advantage Internet product. The company is also working with school districts to provide solutions to reach households that lack connectivity, including through offering a centralized purchase program that allows school districts to identify and provide connectivity to students without broadband access at home, as well as through the company’s Student WiFi product, which enables school-issued devices to access the Optimum WiFi network in the New York tri-state area.
