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

Does not make sense as you can have a few people living in different apartments in a House
So that's different apartments. I remember they told me that apartments are considered a separate apartment if it has its own kitchen.

Anyways, you're asking if you will be eligible for a intro offer again or will your wife be eligible?

If my wife opens up an account and I shut down my account. Will that work for me to get a new offer?

Yes, it absolutely will work. It goes by name only, not address. As far as Optimum is concerned she is a new resident of the address and you moved out. They don't know differently nor do they care.

The main Optimum customer service number. When the automated system asks say you want to "cancel service" (and you're "not moving".)

My promotional year just ended, I did exactly as you said and the guy was able to extend the promotion for 2 years if I agreed to paperless billing and auto payments.

Thanks!
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Heads up, looks like Optimum is raising their rates like crazy! Raising rates on certain plans and adding "fees" to other plans.

Had anyone had luck telling them your gonna switch to Verizon Fios and was offered a promo for the year? or anyone go away for 30+days and settle with fios and them come back to optimum to get the new subscribers offer? as the T&C show as long as you weren't a member for the last 30 days?

No. If you are referring to Optimum WiFi hotspot then you have a certain amount of devices that can be automatically signed in when connected to Optimum WiFi hotspot. Otherwise they will sign in manually and probably need to sign in again shortly thereafter.

It's worth too much.

The above post was for hotspot which is not your home/office WiFi.
It doesn't slow down.
If you mean multiple devices using your internet/WiFi at home/office then it's possible to be slow at times if too many devices are say streaming or downloading at once. And that also depends on your speed and router.
Check your account for how many WiFi hotspot devices are included in plan. Usually depends the plan with the cheapest one getting 3 devices and it does up from there.
It's worth too much.

Anyone get a new modem when upgrading the speeds?

 I changed my plan a bit and I see I got a new router in the mail.
  is it something that happens automatically as soon as you upgrade your speed and get a new router to handle the new speed?

They sent me the
Tm1602 for a 400MB speeds
 While I was previously using the
 Tm822 at 100MB.

  Does that mean the tm822 is not capable of handling 400 megabytes speeds?
