Everything You Need to Know about Satellite TV & Satellite TV Providers

The leading Satellite TV provider, DIRECTV, offers two different kinds of high-speed internet to bundle with its Satellite TV service. The first high-speed internet service that DIRECTV offer is the high-speed DSL internet service. DIRECTV partners with well-known Telco companies such as Verizon, Quest and others to offer Satellite TV and high-speed DSL internet bundle in selected areas. Recently, AT&T has joined the force with DIRECTV to offer Satellite TV, DSL and home phone bundling services in AT& T territories, which covers more than half of the United States. If you live in such areas, good for you.

High-speed DSL internet provides download speed up to 20 Mbps and costs much less than average cable bills. With high-speed internet, you can download files in a matter of seconds. You are able to get wireless modem/router options just as what you get via cable moderm, except that you pay an average of $20 less per month with DSL. For limited time, DIRECTV is now offering $120 rewards for its DSL high-speed internet service. Eligible customers can save $10/month for up to 1 year with mail-in rebate submission.

In some locations, DIRECTV may not be able to partner with a local company to offer DSL service. In this case, DIRECTV does offer another solution that is called high-speed satellite Internet service thanks to its partnership with WildBlue. This WildBlue internet service is available virtually anywhere in the US. With a download speed up to 1.5 Mbps, it boasts speeds that are 30 times faster than dial up, making it much easier to download music, video and pictures. The cost has been one of the biggest drawbacks of DIRECTV high-speed internet service in the past, but it is getting much cheaper now. You can choose a service plan starting from as low as $49.95 per month. And you don’t even need a phone line – that’s great for someone who just need cell phone instead of paying extra for home phone. Something different from DSL internet access: you do need another satellite dish installed in order to receive WildBlue Satellite high-speed internet.
