Special Internet Deal For Onward State Readers

These days there really isn’t much you can do without internet service. Sure we all have data on our phones but anyone who’s been somewhere without Wi-Fi for more than a day or two knows it doesn’t take long to eat through your plan and those costs can be astronomical.

If you’re planning to live off campus this year, odds are you’re going to need to sign up for internet at some point between now and when you move in. If you haven’t started that process yet, then you’re in the right place. Getwireless is offering a special deal on internet service to Onward State readers who also happen to be Penn State students.

If you sign up for Getwireless by Wednesday, July 27 and use the promotion code “ONWARDSTATE” you can get free internet for one month of service with Getwireless as well as free modem rental for the entire year. This will save you $150-200 depending on the plan you choose. If you prefer a $50 gift card, enter promo code OSGIFTCARD.

Getwireless offers bundles for every budget, depending on how much horsepower you want driving your wireless:

  • 12 mb/s — $29.95/month
  • 20 mb/s — $37.95/month
  • 50 mb/s (recommended for students) — $54.95/month
  • 75 mb/s — $69.95/month
  • 100 mb/s — $74.95/month


If you stream video and don’t need or want cable or have cable already included with your rent (Meridian, Calder Commons, AW & Sons, or GN Associates) these prices are the best available in town. So with this deal, it’s a no-brainer.

Another bonus of Getwireless is that the price you see is the price you pay — there are no usage caps or overage fees unlike some vendors that serve the market. Additionally you’ll get access to Getwireless’ 24/7 live help desk support just in case things go awry at 4:56 a.m. the night before your big exam.

Getwireless is operated by Penn State alumni, and in the past year they’ve have built a redundant fiber ring in and around State College, which allows for almost unlimited bandwidth to the buildings they serve. Getwireless recommends getting the fastest and best router you are able to as that is what they usually find to be the weakest link when it comes to connectivity.

If you’re interested in this deal, head over to Getwireless’ student page and get signed up so they can install service in your apartment prior to your August arrival. Getwireless has pretty comprehensive building coverage, including the Meridians, GN Associates Buildings, AW and Sons Buildings and most ARPM properties, but you can check out the complete list of buildings they offer service to.

Started and operated by Penn Staters, Getwireless is focused on providing high-quality internet for Penn State students.
