Satellite TV and Internet Providers

Because competition is stronger for satellite television, DISH and DIRECTV are generally considered superior to cable TV service. You can choose a separate form of internet, and the providers below will actually help you set up home internet service, sometimes even with bundled savings. Call for pricing and bundling options.

Satellite internet is not an ideal choice, but allows people in rural areas to stay connected. Note that most satellite services require either a deposit for equipment installation or a decent credit score.

More about HuhgesNet

Satellite internet should generally be your last option unless no other service is available in your area. The latency (lag) inherent to the technology makes it difficult to stream or browse, and online games that require a fast connection will not work. However, if you live in a rural area HughesNet is a good option. You'll just a need a little more patience while browsing or downloading movies to watch.
