Optimum customer service hours of operation
Optimum’s residential customer service department is open Monday–Saturday from 8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m. eastern time.
Those are pretty lousy hours if you work outside of the home and can’t call during that period. Fortunately, there are other ways to contact Optimum support—and its tech support department is open all night. Read on for details.
Is your internet out? Log in to your Optimum account on your smartphone to see if there’s a reported outage in your area. Optimum may already be working to resolve the issue.
