We have all heard the internet, TV, and phone providers tell us time and time again that their bundled offers are nothing short of a blessing for us. That we can save big time if we subscribe to all of their services together. They can go on and on about the benefits of bundled deals but have you ever been skeptical of their claims? I sure have had my doubts in the past and for good reason. I did not believe that such discounts could come without a catch, so I did my research. And boy am I glad that I did. I was right about one thing that not all providers offered everything that they claimed they would and were actually a rip-off. However, I also found out about some great service providers and their amazing offers that stood honestly to their word.
So now I can say with surety that triple-play packages that include internet, TV, and phone from the same provider are in fact a great way to save your time and money, provided that you are subscribed to the right provider. Everything will be included in a single bill so you do not have to shuffle around several bills to ensure none of the services are terminated and of course there is a discount involved.
We are going to list down some of the top service providers in this post and what their best bundle deals include, that you can avail of in 2020. We will cover internet data allowances and speeds, TV channels included, calling minutes, etc.
Verizon knows the world is moving at a much faster pace than before and they offer internet speeds to match up to the speed of our daily routines. There is no doubt about it that Verizon Fios is among the highest internet speed connections in the U.S. With its fiber powered internet plans, Verizon even offers the highest upload speeds, let alone download speeds. This means that you can stream videos, share files, play games, or work from home with no problems at all.
Verizon consistently ranks among the best internet providers when it comes to customer satisfaction. Along with great internet speeds, Verizon also offers an amazing channel lineup and the option to personalize your Fios TV plan. Verizon phone service offers unlimited nationwide calling. However, there is no mention of data allowance, whether it is unlimited or restricted. Neither is it mentioned in their policy that they will charge an overage fee or throttle speed so it can be assumed that you can use as much data as you want.
AT&T offers the best TV service out there. DirecTV does not need any introduction I believe. It has a name in the TV industry for providing all the channels you could ever want and includes an NFL Sunday Ticket. What more could you ask for? AT&T is the only provider that offers the option to bundle DirecTV with your internet service. The other option is AT&T TV that also offers an extensive channel lineup and supports streaming services like Fubo TV and Netflix, but of course, it is no DirecTV.
AT&T Internet offers speeds starting from 100 Mbps going up to 1000 Mbps with no data caps and no contracts. Therefore, no overage fees, no throttling, and no early termination fee. Do you see why we are so excited about this provider? Combine it with AT&T wireless offering unlimited calling, texting, and mobile data coverage, and you have yourself signed up for the ultimate seamless connectivity one can ask for.
How could we exclude the country’s largest internet and cable TV provider from our list? With extensive coverage throughout the country, the majority of the population can sign up for Xfinity’s fast internet speeds and great channel lineup. With download speeds starting at 275 Mbps Xfinity internet is great for everyone whether you want to play online games, binge-watch your favorite show, or work from home.
The TV service comes with a vast collection of on-demand content, an extensive channel lineup that includes all the major networks, cloud DVR, voice remote, and much more. The voice or phone service offers unlimited nationwide calling and all the popular calling features. However, a contract is required for triple-play offers.
RCN may have a small footprint when it comes to coverage but it surely offers some of the best budget-friendly deals in the market. Consider yourself lucky if RCN serves your area because you will not find a better deal than RCN. High-speed internet, an extensive channel lineup, and unlimited nationwide calling at low prices will no longer be just a dream if RCN is available in your area. There is no data cap, no contract, and you can sign up for whichever service you like.
Internet speeds start from 25 Mbps and go up to 1000 Mbps. Whereas, the TV service offers Digital Basic with just a handful of channels to the Signature TV with all the popular paid TV networks and much more. The phone service just like its competitors offers unlimited nationwide calling.
Finding the right combination of services for your needs may be a bit tricky, but with a little observation and research, you will get there. Start by noticing your internet usage, then your TV viewing habits, and then the number of local and long-distance calls you make. This way you will be able to understand what exactly you require from your service provider and would end up with a bundle that you will be happy with.
