    Good catch Pete. I didn't even notice Citizens on that list. And yes, Frontier is a Citizens Communication company.
    Let us know how you make out with that.

    I may not be eligible since I don't get a separate bill from Frontier (it's bundled with my phone service.)

    I'll ask my local manager about this.

    I hope their internet via satellite is cheaper than Hughnet is. Until they can offer me prices comparable to verizon dsl ($15-20/month) I won't consider switching.

    This offer is great though. I've been trying to figure out ways to lower my bills, this along with switching to voip are going to help me save about $10 / month.

    Well, I asked the regional manager for my area about this and he knows nothing about this. Frontier has a deal with Dish. He's not sure that the Citizens listed is the same as Citizens Communications (parent of Frontier). Probably isn't.

    Cool, thanks dconfer.

    I think it's to get people to switch, or not be tempted to get a cable modem, even while they have D*

    With that cable modem bill there will be endless advertising for digital cable...

    They did this in response to the $5 off bundled offer Qwest DSL offers to new Directv customers that sign up through Qwest. The only difference is the bundled new customers get the $5.00 as long as they are customers, not just 12 months.

    I have been trying to get Qwest to give me this discount for the last 2 years, as it seems unfair to penalize loyal customers to both companies and favor new ones.

    Do you only have to send this in once, or every month?

    What exactly do they mean by "up to" 12 months? There doesn't seem to be any fine print to define what that means...

    It's either 12 months...period... or it is 12 months...except if "this that and the other thing"...

    Anyone know what this means?

    Slight correction (if I'm not late).

    DTV used to own/operate DirecWay DSL and satellite. The DSL was simply resseling Covad. When Rupert bought DTV, he did not but the satellite internet service, it was retained by Hughes. It is called Hughesnet. IMHO, it is terrible expensive for "city folks", but remains a good HSI alternative to those without DSL or Cable HSI access in rural areas who can justify the several hundred dollar up front cost and $80-100 monthly fee (with taxes)!

    My guess about the "up to 12 months" allows for the possibility that you cancel your DirectTV (and/or DSL?) sometime during the 12 months the $5 credit/month is in place. See the fine print.

    Also, I find it kinda odd they are so insistent on "Originals only" and "Reproductions of credit redemption form are stictly prohibited." Did I get the form in my monthly bill and throw it away with the usual promo material? Will Dora toss any requests printed from the .pdf at www.directv.com/creditsdsl?

    And, has this credit been available since February? (since they will accept DSL bills from 02/15/2006 thru 12/31/2006)

    My take was it was up to 12 months just in case you cancel your DTV service. That, and they reserve the right to cancel the entire program whenever they want...

    I received my $5 a month credit starting this month. Very easy and took approx 20 days after I mailed for it to show up. My Alltel/Windstream DSL is only $19.99 a month and this $5 from Directv makes it net out at $14.99..... Great Deal...
