DirecTV is a satellite company which provides services for satellite television as well as very high speed satellite internet. They cater for the many people living in very rural or remote places, in the mountains or near the woods; basically away from civilization! There can be a problem when these people want to receive TV as there are hardly any cable services available in these areas, so therefore a satellite service can be a boon.
However, as well as people living in excluded areas, there are also a lot of city based people who make great use of these services. The services of DirecTV have partnerships going on with internet providers who are well-known and you can make your own choice in internet service.
As mentioned above, the service can be accessed from any location and because the system connects directly to the signals from the satellite, the service is not depending on cables to maintain the connection. Next to a solution for people in remote locations, this service is also a solution for people who travel a lot. With this service a basic local telephone line is not necessary.
The speed of DirecTV is variable. When you decide to take a subscription to the services you have different options regarding the speed of the internet connection. It can be within the range from slow to very high speed. Even if you choose the slow internet connection you will find that this connection is somewhat faster than regular dial-up internet connections. The speed of the connection is best to be compared with cable, but still it depends on the option you have chosen.
The connectivity of DirecTV is outstanding. Satellite service is always available anytime anywhere. The experience of having no connection will be reduced to next to never. There is no physical network to cause any troubles but the connection is sensitive to weather related problems. You do have to clean up your dish on a regular basis and icing can cause some light problems.
The advantage of portability has been very lucrative for DirecTV Internet. You can take the dish and modem anywhere you want and still have a great connection. You don’t have to depend on wi-fi services or check the availability of mobile internet connection points.
The customer service which is provided by DirecTV has a good reputation. In general, the users of the service have good experiences when dealing with customer service. As opposed to the customer services of the general of cable companies, this can be very enlightening.
The downside of the services provided by DirecTV are the costs. When you weigh the service against the price it is worth every cent, but if you compare the prices to the cable companies it is rather expensive. That is a decision which requires knowledge of what is important to you. Is it ok for you to have no connection every now and then or is it important for you to have around the clock access. Get your priorities in order and you will know which decision to make.
