I get mailed offers from Optimum such as 10mbps internet, free TV, free router, and no annual contract for 24.95 plus $5 rental of router each month, for total of $30 per month. I am nervous about wireless, and also don't need TV. I currently use a DSL company (totalling approx. $28 per month but only 1mbs download) which uses Verizon's phone lines, and throws in a modem which they programmed as a router. I also have Magic Jack connected to my DSL as my phone. It all sorta suffices, albeit very slow speed. So my question is, whether transferring to Optimum would take me from frying pan into fire? Am I better off with my current slow DSL? Does the "no-contract" mean they'd probably increase rates willy nilly? I'm in poor health, and changes are difficult for me. In fact, I still have an old 1.7ghz laptop due to sensitivity to higher frequencies.
