I have to check at home , but iirc I have either a 64.x.x.x or a 66.x.x.x on optimum.

Likewise , I am also a optimum customer but I am on a 25/5 for $60/mo .  What's are magic words I have to say on the phone to get that plan ?

Ok so I was able to check this out on a desktop and its even weirder. So my cell phone is getting an external ip of 107.188.23.xxx while the wired desktop is claiming 68.197.163.xxx . The wireless is clearly natting using 25.248.180.xxx/13 for the internal side of the nat which is strange; While the wired is using a 192.168.0.x/24 .   So why do I think I am on the same gear ? I unplugged the router and both the wireless, I was on , and the wired went down. Well either way Optimum is doing some strange stuff here.
