Tip: In Chrome browser, right-click Translate to English, then in the pop-up notification, click Options -> Change Languages. Select the translation language that works best for you.

Step 1: choose O2 offer for €32.90, click "continue to tariff >>" (s. screenshot 1)

Now we're one step further - take a look at the cost overview on the bottom right of screenshot 2.

First 6 months you will pay €19.99 then €29.99. On average you pay €34.99. Mind the connection fee - €69.99 (one-time payment). If it is okay for you - click "continue".

Step 2: skip to the tariff overview (s. screenshot 3)

Ignore the temptation to reduce the monthly costs. The €8.96 is the cost trap that will lock you in for 2 years. Therefore our plan to test DSL provider(s) within a short time would be completely meaningless.

Step 3: double-check everything that this particular DSL service package includes: services overview (screenshot 4) and detailed price overview (screenshot 5). If it is still looks okay for you - click "continue".

Change Provider if not satisfied

Many banks give the money for the reference. It is usually up to €100 and you can get this money if set me, Jaroslav Plotnikov as recommending person (referral). You can get the referral fee in full from me.

You may wonder - Why does Jaroslav give away the referral bonus?

My answer - There's no catch here. I will give you the referral bonus because I really want to be the top service relocation company.
If you offer to share the referral bonus between us I will also agree :)
But as I said, you can take the whole bonus from me.

How to save money if you're a freelancer

Choose Girokonto even if you are intending to open a business bank account for your (freelance) business. If the bank ask you about the purpose your bank account, answer that you need an account to pay the rent, utilities, internet, gym studio, swimming pool, library etc. And also to receive your salary. Many freelancer receive money from one or two source only (like Upwork).

However sooner or later the day come when your bank will politely ask you to open a business account. But it won't be soon. And no worries! You do not break any laws and there will be no penalties if a few months your salary will come to Girokonto - current bank account.

During these few months, you will save money because you do not have the business account. You enjoy the advantages of a free current account and qietly compare various banks for the business account which is most suitable for you. By the way, we at Migwork can help you with this too.
