Exchange making it easier to get, and stay, connected

by Army & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs

Are you on the move? Planning for a PCS? Maybe you just want to find a better deal on your Internet, mobile/cellular, TV or phone service? The Army & Air Force Exchange Service can help out through www.shopmyexchange.com/GETCONNECTED, a new online telecommunications resource designed to help military shoppers get connected and stay connected – wherever they go.

GET CONNECTED provides instant access to information about the Internet, mobile/cellular, TV and phone services provided by Exchange-contracted providers around the world, including all major Army and Air Force installations and Reserve and National Guard facilities.

Services are presented on a location-specific basis from a list of major providers including AT&T, Boost, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Dish Network, Korea Telecom, LG U+, Metro PCS, Softbank, Sprint, Time Warner, T-Mobile, Verizon, Virgin Mobile, Vodaphone and others serving Japan, Germany, Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, the United Kingdom and Guam.

“This program is designed for Air Force families who tend to be highly mobile and greatly value the ability to stay in touch with family and friends,” said the Edwards AFB Exchange General Manager Mike Wiles. “It is perfect for those PCS’ing or returning from deployment because they can look ahead to see what’s available and, in some cases, pre-arrange service.”

For information on Exchange internet, mobile phone and TV services, shoppers can log onto www.shopmyexchange.com/GETCONNECTED to find installation-specific information.
