Why Him? Suddenlink continues to add customers and value since its purchase late last year by BC Partners and CPP Investment Board, which valued the company at $6.6 billion. And the numbers just keep adding up for Suddenlink and its longtime steward Kent. The company hit 1 million high-speed Internet customers in November, right around the time it completed its Project Imagine, which enabled a leap in the number of HD channels from 24 to 85, with some lineups touting more than 100. The upgrade also increased the availability of DOCSIS 3.0 technology from 12% of customers to 93%, and VOD is now available to 91% of the Suddenlink base. ?
