So is Altice Advantage Internet by Optimum really $14.99 flat or do they add both the $3.50 Network Administration Fee and a $10.00 modem fee?

My mom mailed her application with the necessary documents needed for approval. I'm planning on giving her my purchased own Arris TM822 Optimum internet modem that I had when I was with Optimum. However, I'm hoping they don't force her to rent out a cable modem for additional monthly fee. That will just the defeat the whole $14.99 price tag and dreadful application process.

Also how much was the installation fee if there was any?

Wake me up when satellite service is reliable enough and has decently high bandwidth and low latency to be usable.

With Elon musk around I believe it will be within 6 months from now, if not earlier

If you have a battery pack (car charger), and a small car power inverter ($15-$20), you can power the modem and router through that, and use the internet even if the whole house doesn't have electricity. Mine had enough power for my OBI and cordless phone, so those worked too (and also to charge the laptop)

Make sure to drive so car battery doesnt die.
