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

He said I will get the promo price.
Iíll confirm once itís done. I took screen shots of the chat in case they give me issues. I asked him straight out if I will get optimum 20 for $25 after downgrade and he said yes.

I got this.

Any docsis 3.0 modem should work fine up to 100 mbps. If you want Optimum voice, then make sure it has a jack for telephony. If you're on a faster plan, then get a docsis 3.1 modem.



I got this one:

will this work for them?

Did this work? Do you need a sperate router?

Is it a difference if your Optimum plan only has 100Mbps if the router can actually process more?

Is it a difference if the router is being used for Verizon or Optimum?

You mean modem, router doesn't make a difference
