DIRECTV Extends Satellite Broadband Across US

DIRECTV announced new agreements with ViaSat and Hughes to deliver satellite broadband service to consumers across the U.S.

DIRECTV will offer the Exede by ViaSat and Hughes' HughesNet Gen4 next-generation satellite broadband services, with speeds of over 10 Mbps, to its customers living in mostly unserved, rural areas later this year.

This new offering, coupled with already available triple-play bundles with Verizon, AT&T, Century Link and other telco providers, means that any DIRECTV customer in the U.S. will now be able to get bundled pricing.
