No internet in some cities in Pennsylvania

It’s sad to say that we ordered Direct Tv in my town and there’s no coverage in the area. When we called to place the order we specified we wanted cable and internet the person taking the order never told us that there was no coverage for internet in the area. So now we are stuck with a contract for two years and no internet we gonna have to get another company for internet. If I was running a company like this I would invest in making it posible to install an antenna here in this town I’m sure you are gonna have happy customers cause the company they have here it’s just not good specially when there’s no unlimited internet. The town I’m referring to is Tamaqua Pa. Again if you wanna make the big bucks invest in installing an antena for internet in this are it’s a huge coverage area cause you have the towns around also. Good luck and I hope no one else gets lied to when it come to coverage area here.

Are you a DirecTV Satellite customer?  No internet is required for DirecTV satellite services.

DTV has never provided internet service.  Why reinvent the wheel?  Hughesnet and Starlink both provide satellite internet but will also be limited.

You seem to have no idea what DirecTV is or how it is delivered.

DirecTV is a TV service. They have nothing to do with providing internet to anybody. There is no such thing as a DirecTV antenna for a town. You are getting TV from DirecTV's satellites in orbit and each customer has their own receiving dish.

Does that help clear things up for you?

@Babygirl1974 , I have AT&T internet via the city phone line and is billed together with DTV service.  100Mbps max or 5G.  It is fast enough for any action movies.  

There should be some internet providers in your area to get you hooked up to the internet, via a phone line.

Most streaming services are setup to use 30-40 Mbps.

@shannon02 ,  That to slow for any type of streaming?  I thought for the most part, 25Mbps, is good enough, as that is what had for streaming a while back.  I saw no interruptions in movies, for example.  Times have change?

I would hope the OP would post back and clarify the situation. From their initial post it seems they installed DirecTV and then found out it wouldn't provide internet for their entire town. So either they are confused about the service or they need to explain better the actual issue.
