More competition is always better especially when you can get an unlimited cell phone plan for $20 a month. The question is if the service is actually reliable and not full of hidden fees. Non Suddenlink/Optimum customers will have to pay $30 instead of the discounted $20 price that Suddenlink and Optimum customers get but personally I think I'll let early adopters test this before I jump on the bandwagon. Below is their plan details:
Monthly per line charge for unlimited domestic talk, text and data. Reflects $5 AutoPay discount. Up to maximum of five lines. Other monthly charges apply per line and may include $10 activation fee, roaming charges, taxes, gov’t fees and other Altice Mobile fees and surcharges (including USF fee). Exclusive pricing available only for Optimum (OPT) or Suddenlink (SDL) customer. Must maintain both Altice Mobile and OPT/SDL accounts in good standing and Altice Mobile service at current level to maintain promotional pricing. Failure to maintain either account in good standing, disconnection or termination of OPT/SDL service, or changes to level of Altice Mobile service will result in loss of promotional pricing, after which regular rates will apply. Quality of Service (QoS): A small number of customers with heavy data usage may experience slower data speeds. See our Broadband Disclosure for performance and network management details. PRICE FOR LIFE (PFL): Applies to base price per line of service. All fees, surcharges and taxes subject to change. Must maintain current service plan and be in good standing to maintain PFL pricing. PFL pricing applies to life of current account holder and is non-transferrable. Other Restrictions: Credit approval may be required. Limited time offer subject to change or discontinuance at any time. Offer not available everywhere or for all phones/networks. May not be combined with any other Altice Mobile offers. Other terms and conditions apply.
