Installed alticeadvantage today.
The speeds are limited to 30mb download and about 5mb upload.
Interestingly enough if I connect to the optimumwifi hotspot that it gives off I can get speeds of 45 download and 10 upload.

Great, so do that. You can put your whole home network on the faster one.

IIRC OptimumWifi doesn't support desktops, only laptops. If that makes a difference.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Anyway, I was not suggesting connecting each device to optimumwifi. I meant connect a single networking device to optimumwifi, add its MAC to the Optimum list of WiFi devices and route the entire home network through that.

If you have the alticeadvantage plan optimum is offering service for $9.99 a month after the free plan runs out if you sign up for autopay and ebill. Its for the first 3 months. Then $14.99 a month.

They set me up with $14.99 for life.

1. Can I still get this as an existing Altice Advantage customer?
2. For this offer, is the $14.99 thereafter for life?

Installed today Altice Advantage.
LOL you have the same speed as my 400 megabyte plan.
 While I'm paying 90-plus bucks, you're paying 14.99.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
