Suddenlink's aggressive DOCSIS 3.0 rollout continues with the recent launch of its Max 50.0 service in Kingwood, Texas.

Suddenlink, which is the nation's seventh-largest cable operator, announced the Kingwood launch yesterday. Max 50.0 features a downstream speed of up to 50 Mbps and an upstream speed of up to 3 Mbps.

Suddenlink competes against AT&T in Kingwood, and the cable operator said the new DOCSIS 3.0 tier was the fastest in the area and more than doubled the speed of its previous fastest Max 20.0 service.

To date, Max 50.0 has also been deployed in Bryan-College Station, Texas; New Bern, N.C.; Bossier City (including Barksdale Air Force Base), Haughton, Lake Charles and Sulphur, La; and Nixa and Ozark, Mo.

Max 50.0 costs $110 per month a la carte and $75 bundled. Here's a  rundown on Suddenlink's DOCSIS 3.0 deployments as of last month.

The DOCSIS 3.0 launches were the result of Suddenlink's "Project Imagine," which calls for approximately $350 million of capital investments nationwide through 2012, above and beyond the company's traditional capital spending levels. In addition to the DOCSIS 3.0 tiers, Project Imagine's roadmap also includes more HD choices, expanded digital phone service and more VOD offerings.
