How to reach him: Sign up for Verizon Fios Gigabit Connection.
Verizon really wants you to sign up for the concert service. New customers who sign up for the Verizon Gigabit Plan will receive a free rental of routers and Wi-Fi extenders, 2TB Verizon Cloud Storage (worth $ 15 per month) plus a $ 5 discount on a one-year account for autopay enrollment.

Those who sign up for 300Mbps or 500Mbps can also choose between a Disney package and a headset or controller, but not both. 300Mbps comes with a Disney package or controller, while a 500Mbps plan gives you the option of a Disney Bundle or headset.

How to reach him: Apply online for the Frontier FiberOptic plan
Frontier’s promotional offers vary depending on the plan. To win the grand prize – a free Apple 4K TV and an Apple TV Plus free three-month subscription – you’ll need to sign up for Frontier’s new multi-show plan, Fiber 2 Gig. With $ 150 a month, the 2Gbps service is a little higher than the others, but the promotional offer helps with that. The Frontier’s Fiber 2 Gig also comes with Wi-Fi 6 equipment at no extra cost, as does the provider’s single-gig plan, which also comes with a $ 200 gift card, but not Apple’s offering. If you don’t need a gigabit speed, the Frontier FiberOptic 500/500 comes with a $ 100 gift card, but no other incentives.
One caveat about Frontier’s special offers: They come with a one-year contract, so you can’t sign up for Fiber 2 Gig, get your free Apple 4K TV, watch Apple TV Plus for free for three months, and then cancel the service without penalty . Even if you accept a $ 100 gift card, it comes with a one-year service contract. Cancellation before your contract expires may mean early termination fees that may be greater than the value of gift cards or other offers, so make sure you are willing to commit before accepting any special promotions. You can opt out of special offers when you sign up for Frontier internet online.

By registering for the Optimum Gig, you will receive the best offer: a $ 200 gift card and a full year of HBO Max. The Optimum 100, an inexpensive plan available at select locations, does not come with a gift card or HBO Max offer.

How to reach him: Eligible NYC users will receive three free months of service when they sign up for 500Mbps or 940Mbps plans.
Astound’s online offerings vary by location and are a bit ubiquitous. New York customers can get the highest payout – three free months of service only if they sign up for either of the two fastest provider plans. Those who sign up for the cheapest plan, 250Mbps, will get a free modem, but not free months of service. Residents of the DC subway, Lehigh Valley or Chicago area can receive a $ 100 or $ 200 gift card, depending on your location and the plan you choose.
In other areas where Astound service is available, such as the greater Boston area and various cities in Texas, the only offer is free installation. Not much, especially compared to a $ 200 gift card or three months of free service, but it will save you about $ 99 from the initial registration costs.

Frequently asked questions about internet promotion
Who has the best internet offer in June?
Currently, Verizon Fios has undoubtedly the best internet promotion, if you are interested in gigabit service. New users will get a Wi-Fi extender, 2TB of cloud storage space and a free one-year Disney Bundle subscription or Sony Pulse 3D wireless headset and DualSense wireless controller.
You will find the best gift card promotions from AT&T Fiber, Frontier FiberOptic and Optimum, as they all give away high value gift cards up to $ 200 or more. In addition to gift cards, Optimum also includes an HBO Max subscription with selected plans. And if you’re looking for a free service, Astound is giving away three free months of service in select areas, and Kinetic is offering a free performance upgrade (worth $ 30 a month) for three months.
Is a promotional offer worth signing up for a new internet service?
All promotional offers are good, but they should not be the only thing in mind when choosing an online service or a specific plan. The best profit for your money will often lie in a plan that provides the speed you need for the lowest price. Anything on top of that, such as gift cards or free streaming services, is welcome, but if it prompts you to pay a premium for a higher speed than you need, the registration bonus may not have been worth it.
For example, let’s say you buy Frontier FiberOptic Internet and are interested in a 500 Mbps plan, which comes with a $ 100 gift card. Then you see the gig plan, which is $ 20 more per month, but comes with a $ 200 gift card. So after five months, the extra $ 100 you got with the concert service was gone and you were left to pay $ 20 a month more for a plan that has a higher speed than you need. In short, always try to have the best plan for your needs, not necessarily the plan with the greatest advancement satisfaction.
What other internet promotions are available?
Apart from the above promotions, there is not much worth writing about. Of course, some providers have lower starting prices or free installation offers, but this is now so common among ISPs that it can hardly be considered “promotions”.
This does not mean that other special offers are not available, just not so much advertised or perhaps not available to all individuals. When you sign up for a new internet service, ask your ISP what other special offer they can offer you.
Can existing internet users get promotional offers?
Internet promotions are often reserved for new customers or returnees who have been absent for more than a year. However, this does not mean that a lower price or an agreement to upgrade to a higher speed is not available. Try calling your current ISP and asking what he can do to keep your business. It may not bring you anything, but it is could get a lower price, free equipment or something else that is not advertised online. Hey, you never know, it never hurts to ask.
