Desperately looking for a PS5? Sony’s NextGen console continues to sell out almost everywhere. The mobile phone retailer 1 & 1 was able to secure a few copies and is now offering the PlayStation 5 in combination with a DSL contract. Worthwhile deal or bait offer? We did the math.

Update am 14.06.2021:

The PS5 at Mobilcom-Debitel and also o2 is now sold out. 1 & 1 and the electricity provider Yello still have Sony Disc Edition consoles in stock – however, the numbers are also limited here. We have checked whether the offers are worthwhile.

PlayStation 5 at 1 & 1 in the DSL deal

Due to the Corona-related component bottlenecks, Sony is currently having some problems manufacturing and delivering enough consoles. Because the demand is great: 4.5 million PlayStation 5 consoles have already been sold, but it is still not enough. Fortunately, there are a few very limited PS5 offers with cell phone, DSL or green electricity tariffs. Now 1 & 1 has also put together such a PS5 bundle. You can go there between a DSL line 100 MBit/s or 250 MBit/s as well as one 1,000 fiber opticSelect line. There is also a fixed-line flat rate, which PlayStation 5 Disc-Edition plus 2nd controller and a 12 month PlayStation Plus Abo to. The prices start from 59,98 Euro (100 DSL) per month.

1 & 1 tariff details of the PS5 bundles at a glance

All tariffs are Internet in the Telecom network. HD TV and a modem can be booked on request from EUR 4.99 per month each. There are also up to 5 SIM cards included. However, these are only equipped with 100 MB data volume (up to 7.2 MBit / s) and are therefore negligible in our opinion.

It should be positively emphasized that the price does not rise after the 24th month, as is usual with other providers. The 19.99 euro installment payment for the PlayStation 5 is omitted and from the 25th month you only continue to pay the basic price of the tariff. If you do not want this, you should cancel in good time, at least 3 months before the end of the 24-month minimum term.

Sony PS5 incl. DSL tariff with 1 & 1: Is the offer worth it?

We did the math for you: The Sony PlayStation 5 Disc-Edition itself currently costs at least 499 Euro (If it’s available, check the current PS5 availability here). 12 months of PlayStation Plus currently costs around 60 Euro, another controller approx. 65 Euro. If you now calculate the value of the hardware and the PS Plus subscription from the total costs, you effectively pay the following prices for the tariffs:

  • 33,98 Euro per month (DSL 100),
  • 38,98 Euro per month (DSL 250)
  • 63,98 Euro per month (fiber 1,000)

Since this offer is a tariff in the Telekom network, we have used the regular prices of the MagentaZuhause tariffs for comparison. For a DSL 100 line you currently pay at Telekom that. 38.70 Euro in the month. For a line with up to 250 Mbit / s that. 46.20 Euro and for a 1,000 fiber optic cable 79,95 Euro.

In short: The 1 & 1 DSL offers are slightly cheaper than their counterparts from Telekom direct. At the same time, you currently have the chance at 1 & 1 to secure one of the coveted PlayStation 5 consoles. So if you are thinking of changing Internet service providers anyway, we can safely say that The offer is definitely worth it.

The old provider’s contract is still running for a few months – when will I get the PS5?

The current contracts can rarely be terminated on a monthly basis, but usually have a notice period of 3 months. Although 1 & 1 offers a relocation service to terminate the current provider, the new one will only be activated when the old tariff is switched off. Since the Broadcast of the PlayStation 5 A few calendar days before your DSL connection date for the 1 & 1 tariff takes place, it can take up to a few months before you actually hold the PS5 in your hands. So you should inquire in advance exactly when your current contract will expire.
