Research the Chase business cards. One of the Ink cards have 5x points. You need to read up on how to apply for a biz card. I will post a link if I find it.

All the Ink cards have 5x UR points or 5% cash back for internet/phone/cable bills.

Cash+ can give you 5% (6.25% if you don't redeem the rewards till hitting $100) on internet if you select cell phones as one of the categories and your internet is coded as telecommunications. Mine is through AT&T so that's what I do, also works on some cable and satellite tv providers. Chase Ink covers a lot more internet companies though I think.

Has that worked for you? I have Verizon (wireless, wireline, internet) on one bill and I got only 1% because of the MCC.

It has, but I have a laptop connect card that plugs into my USB port for internet. It technically has a phone number even though it can't get calls, and its own bill. But it's not included on the same bill as my AT&T cell phone. I get the 5% for it though.

Directv supposedly gets the same coding and counts as telecommunications for whatever reason, and I've heard people say that they get the 5% for that too, but after changing my autopay account last month, something must have gotten messed up because the bastards are still using my Discover account for some reason. So I can't personally verify the Directv thing till next month.

OK, so that is wireless internet, that should get 5%! FiOS didn't.
