Overall Optimum Review

At Allconnect, we work to present quality information with editorial integrity. While this page may contain offers from our partners, our opinions are our own. Here’s how we make money.

What we like

  • No contracts – With Optimum, you’re never stuck in a long-term agreement or responsible for early termination fees.

  • Price for life plans – Why pay more when you can pay the same price, year after year? With Optimum’s Price for Life, you won’t have increasing monthly internet costs.

  • Happy customers – Optimum is one of the highest-ranked providers for customer satisfaction. As of 2020, it ranked fourth with a score of 65/100, according to the Americans Customer Service Index (ACSI).

  • Great bundle deals – Optimum offers some of the best deals when you bundle any combination of internet, TV and phone services.

Things to consider

  • Optimum introductory pricing – The intro price is only available to new customers or former customers who have not had service in at least 30 days, and whose account was left in good standing.

  • Fees, taxes and surcharges – These can change at any time, which means your monthly cost could go up if those charges increase.

  • Basically have to bundle – If you are only looking to purchase cable TV, then Optimum is not your best option. It’s less expensive to bundle internet and TV than it is to purchase just TV.

Optimum offers great bundle deals which is essential for this provider because they shy away from only letting you purchase individual cable tv plans. The good thing is that if you tire from their service, have to move or are no longer interested in their plans- Optimum has no contract! If you decide to keep them, you’ll be locked into a price for life. They definitely value customer loyalty and it shows with their highest ranked customer satisfaction score. Overall if you have the opportunity to get Optimum service in your area and need both internet and cable we say go for it!
