Did you talk to Optimum CS or Altice CS?

Call the Altice number 8443583147 (the website security certificate is expired, if you don't feel safe applying online until that gets fixed).

I bought this a year or 2 ago https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010Q29YF8/ for about $30
the rep i spoke to today thought it could handle 300 mbps (but we know how accurate she's been...)

Did you really mean a modem? You need a cable modem for Optimum, which you can buy used on ebay. For FiOS, you use the ONT that they install, not a modem.

That's a general answer not enough to give a solid answer.
Maybe this will help https://www.usmobile.com/blog/how-much-is-a-gigabyte/

If you are eligible and don't need something faster, try Altice Advantage Internet. If you are not eligible, try Optimum 20 plan, which may be further discounted with auto pay. Buy a cable modem to avoid paying a rental fee to Optimum. If you buy, you may want to get one that's better than what you need for the plan you are signing up for now so that it can handle the highest speed you think you might want to upgrade to later.

Thanks so much for your helpful info! What is the best rate I can get on the optimum 20 and how do I go about getting it? What cable modem is recommended?

Was told by optimum to get something like this. ARRIS SURFboard SB6190 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, Approved for Cox, Spectrum, Xfinity & others (Black) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06ZZGXJKM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_0plJFb06PVJAE


Is this DDF recommended? Also have an obi, would it work with this?

Just tried changing to the Arris sb6190 modem. Waited on the phone for 1/2 hour.

Not compatible :(

Obi would be connected to the router not the modem
