    if verizon customer add D* what kind of savings do the recieve? i know D* and verizon have a business relationship. when you search D* on google news you see this "Verizon / DIRECTV Bundle Reaches 415,000 Customers" what kind of savings do thes customers see. i'm also thinking of changing my internet and phone to verizon but wanted to know more about the savings. and does any one know if Verizon Fios Internet(not tv), and verizon phone qualify for savings? i currently have COX and pay about 70+ for cox HSI and phone w/ no long distance(IDT).



    thanks,

    Just taking a look at verizon.com for Residential customers and choosing "bundled services" the information shows the phone/DSL/DirecTv is about $91 a month. The fine print indicates that is available for new Residential DirecTv subscribers only. No surprise, as I looked at Qwest bundled long ago and they had the same requirement. Apparently if you are already a DirecTv subscriber, the bundle is not available. I could be wrong, but check the verizon site and see what you find there.

    There is a bundling discount for current Verizon subscribers. I think it may be as high as $6 per month.

    That is correct. I have it. However, it is a major problem getting it collected. Verizon has been very good about crediting my account when the discount doesn't hit properly and D* issued a credit last summer that took me through December.

    Last December I got a $72 discount which is supposed to run through June. I am waiting to see what happens on my July bill. So far this isn't working the way it is supposed to work, but as long as I get the discount it is worth the trouble.

    Call Directv, and state you are interested in finding out about bundled deals with dsl, they will transfer you to a department where someone will get your particulars, and see what deals are available in your area.

    Remember DSL customers have to be within a certain range of the "CO" and Directv really wants you to partner with DSL instead of cable for internet :)

    The bundle discount is a couple buck and requires verzion dsl or dial up, directv and phone service. And yes, the discount I was quoted was $2.

    FIOS is DA Bomb, it is to DSL and Cable what DSL and Cable are to dial up: 14kbp!

    But it may not be available in many areas for a while yet...why don't you see if FIOS is available, and if not for a while...a years contract to get a great deal on DSL and your satellite service together is a great idea too.
