Fortunately, for low-income seniors with a household income at or below 135% of the federal poverty guidelines, the Optimum Senior Discount is available through its Altice Advantage Program. This program offers internet access for $14.99 to eligible seniors and veterans on public assistance. Optimum, a brand owned by Altice USA, provides this discount. Seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income (distinct from Social Security income) can inquire about the Optimum Senior Discount Altice Advantage when speaking with an Optimum representative.

The Optimum Senior Discount menu also includes a 10% discount on basic cable for seniors. For those who qualify for the Affordable Connectivity Program, the Optimum Senior Discount offers up to a $30 per month credit. Additionally, Optimum extends its Senior Discount to phone services.

Even if a senior's household income exceeds the threshold for certain discounts, they can still opt for Optimum’s most affordable internet plan, the Optimum 300, at a base price of $40 per month. No contract is required, and services do not need to be bundled to secure this rate. This rate is highly competitive for home internet service, enabling the setup of a private and secure home Wi-Fi network. Please note that equipment is typically leased and incurs a separate charge.
