Is it really worth bundling services?

I’m not a bundler. I’ve watched as my friends went for the bundle — combining their cell phone bills, their TV bills, their internet bills, their landline phone bills, everything possible into one bill in order to save money. Save money they did, and I noticed how friends were paying about the same for internet and TV that I was paying for just internet.

Still, I was stiff-necked. I had this idea that paying different companies for different services was a sort of hedge. If the internet went down, I still had TV; if the landline went down I still had my cell phone. So I kept paying, often twice what my friends did, just so I could feel “safe.” And I looked at what the competition was doing for TV especially, and I felt superior, because after all I was watching the best TV service. But secretly, I wished I didn’t have to pay more.

That’s one of the reasons I was glad when AT&T and DIRECTV became one company. I’ve always been an AT&T cell phone guy, even though it wasn’t on purpose. I chose a variety of carriers in the early days, but I believed in the GSM technology that underpins AT&T phones (and those by other early 2000s carriers) and while I jumped ship every year by 2006 all those other guys had been bought by either Cingular or AT&T, which in turn merged together.

Now, I can bundle and I don’t have to be jealous. OK, I can be a little jealous, because I’m not in range of that amazing GigaPower 1000Mbps internet that AT&T offers, but I’m sure it’s just a matter of time. So I can’t get the whole package yet, but it’s getting close. I’m glad to have the opportunity to bundle an unlimited voice and data plan with the best in satellite entertainment.

If you have been bundling with another carrier just to save money, you owe it yourself to check out the AT&T and DIRECTV bundles that are out there. Just by putting your home internet and satellite service together, you’ll save a lot, and there are new and innovative programs out there that should save you at least $25 a month on your cell service if you bundle video as well. It’s finally all coming together.

The point is, you just don’t have to settle anymore. You don’t have to choose subpar internet with poor quality video just because you want to save money. You don’t have to choose slow cell data and last-generation video just because it’s a few dollars less. From now on you can actually enjoy the most reliable TV service, the fastest cell service, and incredibly speedy internet all from one company, AT&T.

And best of all, you can get everything you need from Solid Signal. Every day, the merger between DIRECTV and AT&T is bringing more services into Solid Signal’s portfolio and we’re making it easier and easier to bundle the best of everything together. So look… I never was a bundler, but I’m glad I waited. There’s finally a bundle worth getting. Don’t believe me? Call Solid Signal at 888-233-7563 to find out more. You’ll be glad you did.
