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

I was on a $39.99 promotional rate for Internet only at 100 mbps for the last year. I just got a letter that in January, my rate will raise to $44.99 plus $10 for 'Optimum 100' basically, new rate will be $54.99. What has been people's experience with extending the promotion, I'm wondering if it's worth my time or I should just let it be..

Call the retention dept. and find out. They will usually try to "sell" you another service that lowers the price. But call and see: 877-936-4778

Glad I called in. They offered to extend the promo for another year. Was pretty simple.
Thanks @brodes18
