Internet Only Plans

Below are the latest internet only deals Rise Broadband is offering.

Rise Broadband Internet Deals

Rise Broadband is a popular internet provider that also offers phone and TV service through third-party providers (DISH Network and DIRECTV). You can save money by bundling more than one service or signing up for long-term plans. Since Rise does not offer many special promotions, you can get the most value for your family by taking advantage of a double or triple play bundle. In any case, let’s take a closer look at all of the discounts and deals that you can currently get through Rise Broadband.

Rise Broadband Communications Internet Plan Discounts

Rise Broadband offers two primary discount options for qualifying individuals and families. If you are a student or teacher affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, you can qualify for discounted internet service through Rise. Unfortunately, Rise Broadband does not provide details about its student discount or instructions related to the sign-up process. Therefore, you will have to contact Rise Broadband’s support center for more information.

The second Rise Broadband discount, Lifeline, is a government-sponsored program to provide low-income families with discounted internet and phone services. You can apply for Lifeline whether you’re an existing Rise customer or you wish to sign up for a plan in the future. Either way, you’ll need to mail your Lifeline application to the following address:

Rise Broadband
Lifeline Services
619 14th St SW
Loveland, CO 80537

To qualify for the low-income discount, your household’s income must be at or below the income threshold for your state. This threshold usually equates to 135 percent or less than the Federal Poverty Guidelines. You can also qualify if you participate in any of the following programs:

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Federal Public Housing Assistance
  • The Veteran’s Pension or Survivor’s Pension benefit

Rise Broadband does not offer any special discounts for military veterans or senior citizens at this time.

Rise Broadband Internet-Only Deals

Rise Broadband offers various internet-only deals for new customers. If you want to ensure the cheapest monthly premium, then the 25 Mplan is the best value. However, the promotion only lasts for one year and comes with monthly data caps. Alternatively, for an extra $10 per month (once you subtract the modem rental costs), you can get a 50 Mbps plan with no data caps. This promotion lasts for two years. After the promotional period ends, you can expect your monthly premium to go up by $10 per month.

Below is the current price breakdown for Rise Broadband’s four promotional internet-only plans.

Plan name Download speed Monthly start price
Rise Broadband 25 Mbps Plan 25 Mbps $35/mo
Rise Broadband 50 Mbps Plan 50 Mbps $45/mo
Rise Broadband 25 Mbps Plan 25 Mbps $55/mo
Rise Broadband 50 Mbps Plan 50 Mbps $65/mo

It’s also important to mention a few additional benefits of getting your internet through Rise Broadband. For an extra $5 per month, you can get Managed Wi-Fi, which allows you to set up your local network and even set parental controls on your router via the smartphone app. The next level is Premium Wi-Fi, which offers all of the same benefits, but with two Deco M4 wireless routers to provide an even wider coverage area. Finally, for an extra $15 per month, you can get Premium Mesh, which provides three wireless routers to create a seamless, whole home mesh network. This cuts down on dead zones and generally increases speeds across your entire home network.

Rise Broadband Bundle Deals

If you’re looking for phone and internet service, Rise Broadband allows you to bundle both services and pay lower premiums. Rise ActivePhone is a residential phone service, which means that you can use your internet connection to make calls instead of hardwired landlines. With Rise, you get unlimited domestic calls and free international calling in 64 countries. Caller ID and digital voicemail are also included in the service.

Right now, Rise Broadband does not offer any bundling deals for cable and internet plans. That said, Rise does have partnerships with DISH Network and DIRECTV. This means you could bundle a third-party satellite TV plan with your Rise internet and phone plans, equating to a standard triple play bundle. However, your location will determine whether or not you have access to either TV service provider.

How to Lower Your Rise Broadband Internet Bill

As previously mentioned, the best way to keep your premium low is to sign up for a promotional, long-term plan (two years or more). Fixed wireless connections require professional installation, so there’s no way to avoid the one-time $75 installation fee. However, if you sign up for a plan that includes the $10.99/month modem rental fee, you can eliminate this recurring cost by purchasing your own compatible modem or modem-router combo.
