I bought an Arris 1602 & it's been fine. There is a website which lists the acceptable ones for optimum. I chatted online and they sent me a link. Basically it was the either of the 822 or 1602 iirc. I got one on ebay for around $50.

Also remember that if you use optimum voice you need a telephony modem, which the 2 listed  above are.

I bought a refurbished Arris SurfBoard SB6141. I spoke to Optimum tech support before and they verified that it will be compatible (for internet, not voice).
Here's a sample link

Is this for an extender ?
I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work

Hey optimum has a deal $20 for optimum 20 but you have to pay for installation. Can I sign up for optimum 100 to get free installation and then downgrade to the lower price?

I am curious. Is it just for 1 year the optimum 20 for $24.99, or is it just the regular price?  I am on optimum 10 for that price and wonder if I can do better.

We were paying $75 + $5 tax for Voice & Internet (50/5). No modem fee.
Our promotion ended and the bill is going up to about $95.
We called to cancel and switch to Verizon and Optimum offered to continue our pricing for another year but a modem fee would be added. We agreed.
Now I read some of this thread and also see Optimum offering new customers $50 for 1 year of voice and internet (100/35) with $10 modem fee.
Is it worth a try to get that price even though we're not new customers?

They're weird...we're moving, wife asked as a new customer, was told $25 plus modem fee. I called to move current line and was quoted $20 plus $10 for modem rental.

Price must have increased for new customers...
