Military Discounts on Internet Service

The internet is one of those utilities that was once considered a luxury but now is all-but-required for modern life success. For anyone working from home or going to school from home, having a reliable internet service provider at a reasonable price is essential. Equally important are fast download speeds and the ability for multiple people to be online at once. This guide breaks down military discounts on internet service available to military families and veterans. 

All of the companies we’re covering in this round-up have specific eligibility requirements, so it’s best to check with the company directly to ensure you have the necessary documentation on hand. 

To verify your military status, some internet service providers may require you to create an account with military verification websites like:

When it comes to high-speed internet, digital cable, and more, Xfinity’s deals depend on your location and are always changing.

Xfinity doesn’t currently offer a monthly discount for members of the military. However, for a limited time, Comcast/Xfinity is providing a special promotion for active-duty servicemembers and veterans.

Through March 31st, 2021, Xfinity is offering current and new customers with a $25 coupon that can be used for Xfinity On Demand rentals and purchases or as a credit toward your monthly bill.

Verizon/FiOS

Like other large, national companies, Verizon offers a generous bundle package to help make internet service, mobile service, home phone, streaming, cable and more, more affordable. The company currently offers three different bundling options that can save you upwards of $100 each month. 

If you’re looking specifically for internet service, Verizon/FiOS offers military members home internet starting at $34.99/month + taxes and equipment charges.  

You’ll need to confirm eligibility to take advantage of these discounted internet service rates.

Regional Internet Service Providers

Do you prefer internet service through a smaller, regional provider?

No problem. Sometimes regional companies will also offer military discounts for internet service. Or you might be able to entice them to match these offers from their national competitors.

Simply call your internet service provider about any available military discounts or deals.
