Is Optimum internet good?
Yeah, Optimum’s cable and fiber-optic internet is good. If you live in the tristate area—Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York (the Bronx, Brooklyn, Long Island, and Westchester), think about giving them a whirl.
The company has fast internet speeds (from 300–1,000 Mbps) at reasonable prices with no contracts, data caps, or early termination fees. Some plans qualify for its Price for Life promotion, which means your payment won’t change as long as you have your plan.
Also, if you’re itching to leave your current provider, Optimum will pay $500 toward freeing you from your contractual shackles. And Optimum won’t trap you with its own contract.
Unfortunately, even with all its redeeming qualities, Optimum scored poorly in our customer satisfaction survey. You might wanna give that a read before signing up for service. But Optimum’s lack of contracts—not to mention that $500 buyout offer—make it a relatively risk-free commitment.
