Are you a military service member moving to Colorado Springs? If so, you may need a new phone carrier while you're there. There are many phone carriers that offer discounts to military service members, but you have to know where to look and how to get those discounts. Below is information that may be useful during your relocation.
AT&T provides discounts to Active Duty, National Guard, Retired Military, Reserves, Veterans and their spouses. The benefit includes a 25% discount on any qualified wireless plans, including the AT&T Unlimited and More and AT&T Unlimited and More Premium wireless plans.
The discounts can be complicated, but it's important to remember the more services on the bill, the bigger the discount. This includes a $15 discount on qualified video services like DIRECT TV NOW as well as a $15 discount on qualified Internet services.
