Most Suddenlink plans are free of fees that are common with other internet plans, but they still have a few. Professional installation costs $59 for most Suddenlink plans, which is pretty reasonable, and they do occasionally offer free standard installation as a promotion. You can avoid Suddenlink’s installation fee by using your own modem or opting to self-install. Renting a modem from Suddenlink costs $10 per month, though often this cost is waived with the purchase of any plan online.
