The more you use Optimum WiFi the less you'll spend on cellular data

Optimum WiFi is built for data consumption, so connecting to an Optimum WiFi hotspot is smart since data used while connected doesn't count against your cellular data plan.

So, you can spend hours sharing photos on Facebook, watching videos, downloading apps and playing games. It's like an unlimited data plan, just for Optimum Online customers.

Average Optimum WiFi user

Average usage:

14.9 GB



Average WiFi usage is calculated by dividing the total data uploaded and downloaded by Optimum Online residential customers on the Optimum WiFi network by the total number of residential Optimum Online customers who used Optimum WiFi. Average WiFi usage is calculated monthly and is based on the previous full month of Optimum WiFi usage.

Value is calculated by multiplying your amount of WiFi usage (in gigabytes) by a $15 per gigabyte fee for data overages from a Verizon Wireless cellular data plan.
