Windstream Internet Discounts

Windstream is currently offering some enticing internet discounts for new customers. Here’s a breakdown of the Windstream internet discounts available:

The prepaid card is valid for up to 6 months, and any unused funds will expire after the valid thru date. Be sure to review the card’s terms and conditions for full details.

Note that this is a limited-time offer and is not available for local, state, or federal government accounts.

$60 Off for Teachers and Families with Students

Windstream is offering a $60 discount to teachers and families with students when they subscribe to Kinetic by Windstream. This offer effectively waives the activation fee for the internet service.

This offer is available to teachers, families with students living at home, and college students living independently. To qualify, you must be a new Kinetic Broadband Internet customer, meaning you haven’t received Kinetic Internet service within the past 30 days.

This is also a limited-time offer and can be claimed anytime before September 21.

Windstream Internet Add-Ons

It doesn’t end with discounts—Windstream also offers several exciting add-ons that complement the internet service. Here are some of the additional services currently available with Windstream Internet:

Kinetic Home Phone Service 

Kinetic Home Phone is a landline phone service that includes a dozen popular features such as Caller ID, Call Waiting, Spam Call Alert, and enhanced voicemail. Since this is a traditional home phone service, it doesn’t rely on internet service. But can bundle it with Kinetic Internet for only $25 more.

DIRECTV via Satellite and Internet

Windstream partners with DIRECTV to offer Internet + TV bundles without cable. Whether you choose DIRECTV via Satellite or the Internet, you get access to a wide range of channels including regional sports networks. Contact Windstream customer service for pricing and details.

YouTube TV

Windstream also partners with YouTube TV to bring you an all-in-one internet package without cable. YouTube TV has popular cable networks as well as location broadcast news and sports channels. You get 6 YouTube TV accounts with unlimited cloud DVR for everyone with the ability to stream on up to 3 screens at the same time. We’d like to see cable TV do that!

WiFi Mesh Extenders

Mesh WiFi may sound like a buzzword, but it’s a powerful technology that can significantly improve connectivity in large homes. WiFi mesh extenders are separate routers, but they form a single wireless network with the primary router. As a result, your devices switch between the routers automatically and seamlessly. 

Windstream offers Kinetic Wi-Fi Mesh Extenders that you can add to the Kinetic Gateway. You no longer need to replace the entire WiFi network with a costly mesh WiFi system.

Perks of Windstream Internet

1. Unlimited Data

Kinetic by Windstream has no data cap or data overage fees. You can stream, download, game, and browse all you want without a care in the world. 

2. 99.9% Reliability

Windstream boasts a network reliability of 99.9%, implying the network stays online 99.9% of the time. This translates to a downtime of just 90 seconds per day. You can count on your internet connection to be there whether you need it for work, school, gaming, or entertainment.

3. Symmetrical Speeds

Most types of internet services have asymmetrical speeds, i.e. the download speed is much higher than the upload speed. This is usually by design as most online tasks require more bandwidth downstream than upstream, so ISP prioritizes downstream bandwidth at the expense of upstream bandwidth. 

Windstream offers symmetrical speeds when it provides fiber internet. Optical fibers have a very high bandwidth, so they can support high upload speeds without sacrificing the download speed. This can significantly improve video conferencing, file uploads, and other tasks that rely on sending data.


Kinetic by Windstream currently has promotional discounts on all its offers from the 100 Mbps DSL plan to the 8 Gbps fiber plan. It also has additional one-time discounts such as a $100 Kinetic Visa prepaid card and free installation for teachers and families with students. Interested individuals can take advantage of these deals through Windstream customer service.
