Plus, as a loyal Optimum customer, for a limited time, you may be able to lock in $20 a month for life as an Optimum customer. Otherwise $30 for life.
Look at this offer:
- Unlimited data, talk and text nationwide
- Unlimited mobile hotspot

- Unlimited international talk and text from the US to more than 35 countries
- Unlimited data, talk and text while traveling abroad in more than 35 countries
The catch? there is always a catch. Verizon Wireless works best in much of the Altice footprint – the northeast. Altice is an MVNO reselling AT&T and Sprint.
AT&T has a very fast network, Sprint has lots of available spectrum. This means the service you get – when you have service, is likely going to be great. You will also save a lot of money if you switch.
Other things to know is pricing includes a $5 autopay discount, there may be a $10 activation fee. LTE and WiFi are the networks in use. There is no 3G.
Limitations on the “Unlimited” data plan are as follows: Speeds for video streaming over LTE and hotspot tethering will be reduced to 2G (e.g., 128 Kbps) after 50GB of data usage in a month for the remainder of the billing period after the allotment is exceeded. Subject to this allotment policy, use of your device as a WiFi hotspot will be unlimited at 600 Kbps speeds, and streaming video will be at DVD quality (480p).
All in, a solid value when compared to the major wireless carriers – especially if you are an Altice customer already.
