Reliance now offers internet without phone service

It has taken several years and many requests from customers, but it is now official.

You can now have broadband service with Reliance Connects without a phone line.

The new service was soft-launched in April and on a full rollout May 1, according to Area Manager Harold Oster.

“We had to look at the financial repercussions from the changes,” he said. “Now that there is some Federal help to offset the costs, it has become more viable.”

The new program is being called “Just Broadband” and is available for new and current customers by going to or by calling their office during normal business hours at 702-346-5211.

While hundreds of customers may be cutting their landlines, their costs for internet will increase slightly, although Oster noted that there are still savings to be had in doing such. The minimum package for Just Broadband starts at $49.95, which is $10 more than the previous rates.

    Sounds like a 25% penalty for not having a landline. Why is this necessary in Mesquite, but not anywhere else I know of? Landlines sill soon be a thing of the past, then what?

  2. John Chambers says:

    How can you spin a $10 increase per month ($120 a year) on an already overpriced service into something good?

  3. Tony Gems says:

    Frankly, reliance pricing is outrageous, compared to tds whom frankly is high compared to other areas.
    Cannot wait till tds and reliance get kicked outa here and we get real cable and broadband companies.

  4. Pat Galliher says:

    We called today to get our unused land line removed. Guess what? Our bill would INCREASE $4 per month if we remove the landline. Does anyone really wonder why internet service providers are the most loathed businesses in the country?

    We were going to switch to TDS after cancelling Reliance 2 years ago and paying even more to DISH. However, TDS does not cover our area yet. But one phone call to DISH got me a great rate reduction simply by cancelling a bunch of channels we don’t need or use. And all that without signing a new 2 year contract, we can still cancel anytime. Then I called Hughes for our internet and got 20 Mpbs for $50 a month. YEA! Time for Reliance to clean up their game or move on.
