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.

LTE coverage is spotty still in a lot of suburban, heavily populated areas. I am sure it is much worse in the rural areas still.
Maybe in a few years when LTE 4G is done being rolled out, but right now its not a valid option for LOTS and LOTS of people.

Enjoy that 5GB/month data cap! Call me when they have a reasonable price for their service with AT LEAST 250GB/mo!
