Letter from Altice/Optimum regarding ongoing project.

May 26, 2022

Dear Property Owner(s):

The future is coming to your neighborhood as Optimum, a brand of Altice USA, deploys a new Fiber to the Home (“FTTH”) fiber optic network – technology that will give you even faster Internet speeds, improved video and home phone services, and connect you and your family digitally to anything and everything in an instant. This project is an upgrade from Optimum’s existing network, and an investment in the region that will provide a more reliable and resilient cable and internet experience for all customers.

Over the next few weeks, we will be doing the work necessary to bring FTTH to your neighborhood by installing new wires and fixtures necessary to make the system operable. Through its franchise with the City of Glen Cove, Optimum is fully authorized to construct and deliver this innovative technology through the public-rights of-way, and within all easements dedicated for compatible use (such as electric, telephone and gas) within the City.[1] Pursuant to Optimum’s franchised rights to access easements for compatible use, Optimum hereby notifies you of its intentions, and respectfully requests the opportunity to arrange access to the utility easement on your property in order to complete the installation of our FTTH system.  

If you have any questions, you may reach out to Optimum by contacting Frank Alleva, Director of Government Affairs at [email protected].
