DIRECTV has partnered with satellite broadband providers ViaSat and Hughes to offer a new video/Internet bundle called the Exede. Exede was created by ViaSat and Hughes' HughesNet Gen4
Exede will offer speeds of over 10 Mbps as well as special offers that haven't been detailed yet. Customers can also take advantage of triple-play bundles with AT&T, Verizon, and Century Link, which are already available. This means bundled pricing for customers living anywhere in the U.S.
"We look forward to offering every single DIRECTV customer access to fast, affordable broadband options through DIRECTV, no matter where they live," said Oswin Eleonora, senior vice president of Emerging Markets for DIRECTV. "With greatly improved capacity and speeds, satellite broadband services provided by ViaSat and Hughes will fully support our customers' connected home experience, enabling them to access a host of features like YouTube, Pandora, social TV apps, and more than 7,000 VOD titles."
DIRECTV said the service mainly aimed to provide bundle services to those living in rural areas, but will be available to anyone living in the U.S.

While I am graced with the ability to choose between 2 different actual high speed providers (Cable and Verizon Fios), there are a lot of places where satellite or DSL are the only options. I think Verizon was even partering for a time with DirectTV for people where Verizon had not run FIOS service. You would get directTV, but verizon phone and DSL internet.
So if you could actually get somewhere around a 10MBit connection via satellite, and you live out in the sticks, this could actually be a lot better than DSL or dialup.
