Earn up to $75 for referring your friends!

Refer a friend to BendBroadband and you and your friend could get up to $75 each when they become a customer too. We’ll credit $25 to both of your accounts for each service they add (Internet, Video and Phone). It’s our way of saying thank you – which, by the way, is what your friends will say after you refer them.

To get started, go to the refer a friend page on and input your friend’s name, city, email and phone. We will also ask for your name, phone, and address.

When all the conditions are met, the credit is applied to both the existing customer (you, the referrer) and your friend.

To be considered a new customer, the individual must not have had service with BendBroadband for a minimum of 12 months.

Before the new customer receives the credit, they must have service for at least 60 days.

For the existing customer to receive the credit, they must have active service with BendBroadband when the new customer is provided their credit.

The maximum referral credit per account is $75.
