How can I get Optimum to lower my bill?
Try calling Optimum to see if you can drop down to a cheaper package or, if you’ve been with the company for several years, see about a loyalty discount.
You might also try applying for Optimum and Suddenlink’s internet service for lower-income individuals, Altice Advantage Internet. The plan costs $14.99 a month and has speeds up to 30 Mbps, unlimited data, and discounted standard installation (a one-time fee of $14.99). It’s available to the following customers:
- K–12 or college students displaced due to school closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic*
- Seniors 65 years of age or older who are eligible for, or currently receive, Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- US military veterans who receive state or federal public assistance
*Students who do not currently have home internet access can get Altice Advantage Internet free through June 30, 2020. But they’ll still have to pay the discounted installation fee. For Optimum customers, that’s $30 (split over the first three months). Suddenlink customers pay a one-time fee of $20.
