  • What happens if my business moves to a new location? Billing and Tax Forms

    Moving? Let Suddenlink make it EASY for you!

    To ensure your move is a success, it is vital to notify us as quickly as possible.

    The first step is to call 800-490-9604 and provide us with the following:

    • What is the new service address?
    • When do you want to move?
    • Will you need internet at both locations simultaneously?
    • Fax number or email address where we can send the required paperwork. (Learn more)


    Once the paperwork is returned to us, we can verify if the new location is serviceable and schedule your installation appointment. This can take 7-10 business days. We will notify you of the installation appointment day and time as soon as it is scheduled.


  • I was told that I need a static IP to make my services better, is there any truth to that? Tech Support

    No, a static IP will not make your service any faster or more stable than it is.

    The main advantage of a static IP is that a customer's Static IP does not change automatically without notification from us. They are easier to memorize if you need to log in remotely, and you can use it for services that need to use an IP that won’t change without your knowledge. Examples are mail servers, video camera systems, etc.
