Optimum has two types of internet: Optimum Fiber and Optimum Internet. If your neighborhood has Optimum Fiber coverage, you’ll get Optimum’s best fiber internet plans with download speeds up to 5,000 Mbps. Fiber internet also comes with equal upload and download speeds, so you’ll have zero wait times during video calls or Google Drive transfer sessions.

If your house gets only Optimum Internet, you’ll still have fast cable internet speeds that’ll be more than enough for your entire household. Optimum Internet offers download speeds up to 940 Mbps, and customers will also get a free Gateway 6 router/modem and Wi-Fi extender.

Is Suddenlink still around?

Optimum and Suddenlink have merged, so Suddenlink is no longer open for business. But if you’re in one of the 17 states that previously had Suddenlink service, you can now get Optimum’s great prices and internet plans.
