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

you sound like you have your routers and cable modems mixed up...ask ppl who are up there who they use as providers. maybe you'll get lucky and find someone who will give you their password to let you leech onto theirs , or you'll find an optimum hotspot your router can pick up.

Optimum 200/35 or FIOS 100/100? They are the same monthly fee ($40).

Anybody ever have an optimum technician come down & refuse to do anything if they see an obi device hooked up, or do they just ignore it ?

My internetís been down since the latest (weekly) outage. Iím afraid theyíll just blame it on the obi connection & walk out.

You can plug the obi into your router.

Yes, I've had it happen once and I got a warning in my inbox or when clinking on the link. I think the first time you'll need to agree to the terms or something. Don't start emailing and telling them you didn't do it because that's when they'll go after you. Just ignore it and use a proper  VPN. 
It's worth too much.

They get complaints from rights holders that they pass along

When you torrent everyone can see each other's IP address
