Dish and DirecTV are two satellite television providers that also offer Internet access. Neither provider offers Internet alone, so prospective customers must order a bundle of services in order to take advantage of Internet access.
Dish requires new customers seeking Internet access to choose a core package from one of its three television packages, which include America's Top 120, America's Top 250 and DishLatino Dos. The Internet portion of the bundle is DSL-based and includes download speeds of seven to 20 megabits per second, as of 2015.
DirectTV differs slightly in that it offers customers the choice of an Internet service provider, having partnered with several regional and national companies, including Verizon, CenturyLink, AT&T and Windstream. Bundle prices vary according to the ZIP code, and additional fees are charged for equipment and service.
