How To Get Cheap Satellite Even If You Already Have A Satellite Internet Service

By Carl Langlois

Satellite internet is similar to other high speed internet services. To use the service, you have to sign a service contract for a specific period of time. In the initial stages of your contract, you often get a lower rate as an incentive for signing up. But then the price increases to regular rates. The increase is often quite a lot. Even so, you can still get cheap satellite internet. Here’s how to do it.

There is good and bad with satellite high speed internet. The bad comes with the higher cost when compared to DSL or cable internet. The good part is that satellite internet is an emerging technology.

Any new technological product that comes into the marketplace generates a lot of buzz and a high cost initially. If you think for example about flat screen TVs. The price today is a lot less than it was when they first became available. The cost goes down as improvements are made in the technology.

Satellite providers dealing with internet rarely advertise in the conventional way. So, when your package price reverts to the real cost, call your internet service provider to inquire about the availability of any new packages or pricing.

Maybe there will be a new package available and maybe not. But the point is you probably won’t be aware of it unless you ask them. And if there isn’t one now, call them back in 6 months. Things change very quickly in this industry.

Whatever you do, do not wait until after your contract runs out to contact them. Believe me, I know. I waited and it cost me a lot. You see, my contract had expired and I was carrying on, on a monthly basis. I knew I should check into a new contract but I hadn’t done so.

Then one day out of the blue I got a phone call from my internet service provider offering a better package and better pricing if I renewed for a year. Because of updates and improvements in their satellite service, they could now offer their existing customers an improved package for less money.

I really wish I had called them because I’m now saving $30 monthly and could have had this saving for the past 6 months. My name came up as they were going through customer files.

Better still is the fact that if a better price becomes available during the term of my new 1 year contract, I will receive it. I just bump my renewal back up to a year.

As internet via satellite becomes a more and more competitive business, more service providers will be trying to get their piece of this booming market. When an internet provider already has you as a customer, they will go to great lengths to avoid losing you. The results can be only good for consumers, as they offer better deals on better packages.

Take advantage of this. Check out what the competition is offering but don’t forget about your own internet service provider when you do. Because the fact is, you can get cheap satellite internet even if you are already an existing customer, under contract.

The best satellite internet doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Find out how and where you can get cheap satellite internet and still enjoy all the benefits of a fast internet service.
