Curious thinking about switching from cable

My internet speeds right now are:  Ping- 12 ms;  Download 24.6 Mbps;  and Upload 3.41 Mbps.   Am I going to get these types of numbers with Directv.  I would not be satisfied with slower internet, any pertinent information would be appreciated.  Thanks so much.

Hi @katsudolady,


This depends on how you use your DIRECTV service. If it is not used to download On Demand content, you will not see any impact since the TV signal is brought in via satellite.


If you download movies, a portion of the internet speeds is used which can impact your speeds. It really just depends on how you will use the services. 


Hope this helps, if not, please let us know. We are here to help.
