WildBlue’s same great service at an ultra-low price, courtesy of the U.S. government.

WildBlue, through the U.S. Recovery Act brings a special offer for high-speed Internet to areas unserved by wireline providers. It’s the most affordable deal we’ve ever offered, and the monthly price for this special package is guaranteed for as long as you remain a WildBlue customer. Take advantage of government funds to get High Speed Internet at discounted rates.

This service is the same great WildBlue service enjoyed by nearly half a million U.S. customers right now. The only difference is that the U.S. government is helping to fund the cost of the equipment and monthly service for eligible U.S. households.

Included with every plan:

  • The full suite of Google Apps™ word processing, customizable home page, calendar, contacts and tools to collaborate and build your own website!
  • Professional standard installation by a certified WildBlue technician.

The Internet experience you want — fast, affordable, and available.

  • NO upfront equipment fees (a savings of $149.99)
  • NO monthly lease fees (a savings of $9.99 each month)
  • ADDITIONAL savings of at least $10 each month compared to similar WildBlue service plans
  • FREE set-up
  • FREE standard installation
  • FREE 24/7 U.S. tech support
  • FREE shipping and handling

This is a one-time offer.

The WildBlue Recovery Act package will only be offered while funds remain from the U.S. government. This offer won’t last long, so if you’re interested, we recommend calling now to determine if your address is eligible.
