One avenue I may suggest for getting Suddenlink's attention is through
GetSatisfaction.com, "people-powered customer service:"
You'll have to let folks there know that you've posted.
GetSatisfaction.com has pretty good Google PageRank, so smart
companies should respond to what goes up on the site.
While you're there, check out the Company-Customer pact and, if you're
like me, you'll be charmed with the whole idea of the site: http://www.ccpact.com/
p.s. the only local org/biz that has much traffic on there right now
is Humboldt Transit Authority, if you're curious: http://getsatisfaction.com/humboldttransit
