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.

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 .convergedigest.com /DSL/lastmilearticle.asp?ID=18668"]Verizon / DIRECTV Bundle Reaches 415,000 Customers[/URL]" 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).
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

AnonomissX i want a fast connection for my internet. unless you can prove to me that dsl is faster than Fios than i'm not intrested in there dsl service. thanks everyone for the comments when i have time i will call D* and see what they can offer me.
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.
