Topic Wiki

Best offer available right now is $50 for internet & phone for 6 months, afterwards bumped up to $60/month.
Standalone internet service isn't cheaper. You can try calling retention to extend your promotional rate, though recently DDFers have been unsuccessful.

The best available promo for Optimum internet (only), is the $40/month for 12 months for new customers.
Many people reported success in retaining the $40/month plan (after 12 months) after calling Optimum to cancel.

The old promo for internet was $30, but that has been replaced with the $40 plan around May 2013.
As of now, it isn't coming back, even with persistent HUCA, but users have had success upgrading to a higher speed plan for $45/month

Looks like NZBIndex is a mess... anyway to tell how big the target file is before adding to client?
the size is on the right hand side, the trick is finding the correct nzb needed.

For example for tonights family guy episode:

search nzbindex.nl for family guy
the first result is [76685]-[FULL]-[#a.b.teevee@EFNet]-[ Family.Guy.S10E03.HDTV.XviD-LOL ]-[1/1] - "Family.Guy.S10E03.HDTV.XviD-LOL.nzb" yEnc
then search for 76685 family guy
you end up with 2 results and obviously the first one is too small so it is the second one that you want

you have to get used to the sizes in order to weed out the spam, viruses etc.

350mb for a 40 min episode in sd
175mb for a 20 min episode in sd
etc.

Anyone know what's the current best offer for Optimum JUST INTERNET service?
By best offer I mean best price or good rebate/free ipod etc.

$0/month for high speed (1mb/s up and 6 mb/s down) from Optimum with free instillation, is the best deal I know of. That's what I got :)

Yea, I figure its about the same size files as I'm used to with torrents.

But what is the 76685?

not slow that's megabytes per sec...not megabits. hence 50 megabits per sec down and 8 megabits per sec up.

FYI, people dont normally term bandwidth speed in megaBYTES/sec.

A "1 meg" connection normally means 1 megaBIT.

So you got 8 megabit connection for free?

(P.S. For someone using a 100 megabit connection, 1 megaBYTE per sec is STILL awfully slow.)

np

my bad, assumed mbps when talking internet speed. although 8 bits per byte so 1MB/s is only 8Mbps... 50Mbps = 6.25 MB/s

edit: and I was too slow. :)
