Service Restoration: Trouble Shooting Tips
Once power has been restored to your home, your Optimum services should be back up and running. If you experienced a loss of power, it is best to restart your equipment using the following steps:
Unplug your equipment from its power source.
Wait 30 seconds.
Plug your equipment back into the power source.
If your service does not return after restarting, it is possible that:
The power that feeds our network in your area comes from a different commercial power source than the power that feeds your home or business location or there is another issue relating to network power that needs to be addressed. We are coordinating with the electric companies to identify these issues and ensure prioritization of repair or restoration.
There is damage to the Optimum network, like a downed utility pole or wire break, and our crews are proactively working to rectify this type of damage to restore service.
We have created the opportunity for customers check on service status online by doing the following:
Go to optimum.net/support/outage and sign in with Optimum ID and password. Next, under Support, located in the upper right corner, click "Service status"
