Remember when Altice wasn’t a huge name in the US cable market? Neither do we. Since the global cable, telecom and media company made its stateside debut in 2015 with the acquisition of Suddenlink followed by the purchase in 2016 of Cablevision, Goei has been sitting atop a growing empire that currently serves approximately 4.9 million customers across 21 states. And it’s been full-speed ahead. In less than two years, the company more than tripled speeds across its Optimum footprint and expanded the areas where it offers 1 gigabit speeds in Suddenlink territories. Altice is on track with its ambitious five-year plan to deliver fiber to the home across its entire footprint, and Goei recently opened discussions with select VOD services to integrate their content into the Altice pay-TV service. But it’s not just about infrastructure advances. Under Goei’s leadership, Altice is a prime example of an intrinsically global media company succeeding in serving the increasingly diverse American audience. Regarding diversity, Goei says, “We should not be complacent on this point, as our willingness to be open, engaged and respectful of each other will lead to success on every level—for employees, customers and partners.”
