1. We moved to NJ from CA about a year ago and started using Optimum

I can tell you this, it’s a lot better than Comcast. Cheaper, better WiFi coverage in the house, and a nice interface if you want to watch your shows on your tablet.

2. They draw you in

with the “cheap” triple play for $99 a month. But when that expires, its another story. We now 10 yrs after the initial introductory offer pay $269/mo. 4 boxes, two of them are dvr, and its the silver pkg. When my son moves out, I will likely be cutting the cord, and just use ruku w/netflix/hulu and pay for HBO & SHO separately.

Never had comcast or the option of any other cable provider so I cant compare.

ETA: thats actually for 3 boxes. The 4th I switched to a cable card in a new tivo. Have thought about switching all boxes to tivo streaming, but it just seems too complicated to set them up with the technology they have now. Waiting to see if they improve box technology.

3. Thanks. I just called, got a human (wasn't easy) and then found out it's maybe $10-15 cheaper than

what I have. So, gonna let the come-on die, now. Not worth changing. No surprise, there. We'll see if they saved my info and will bargain with me....

4. It's the only cable choice around here (although Dish is available with internet through Verizon)...

I have no complaints about the service, but everyone has huge complaints about the price.
