Satellite TV and Internet Providers

Satellite TV is generally a good choice for customer service and channel selection. DIRECTV and DISH are ranked above traditional wired TV providers in almost every survey and study done.

Satellite Internet (like HughesNet) should be seen as a last resort. Latency is often very high, making it impossible to live stream video or play games. For rural customers with no wired service, though, HughesNet is likely the best option.

About DIRECTV

DIRECTV, now owned by AT&T, is often ranked first in TV service. DIRECTV won JD Power's most recent survey in the East region for customer satisfaction, beating cable companies by a wide margin. DIRECTV does not have an Internet option. If DSL or cable is available, we recommend choosing wired Internet and satellite TV. If no wired services are available customers can set HughesNet and DIRECTV up separately.

About HughesNet Satellite Internet

HughesNet satellite internet is probably the best satellite internet-only option available. Remember that while speeds may reach 15 Mbps, the latency of satellite Internet will make it feel like a significantly slower connection.

 

 

Mobile Internet Providers

Mobile/wireless data service is often marketed in a way that makes it hard to compare. We've included access charges and unlimited talk/text on cell phone plans as well as autopay/paper-free discounts to show what you'll actually pay for the listed data. Monthly payments will be higher if you choose a subsidized phone.

Consider mobile internet as your primary access if no wired providers are available, your data usage is light (few videos), and your computer or main device can connect to 4G or connect wirelessly using your phone as a hot spot. 4G data is often faster and much lower in latency than satellite internet.
