Advertisements It's a weird and misplaced service to me, but we'll see. I don't know how they compete against a MUCH more fully featured offering from DISH. Mobile has some high-value customers on boats and RVs, as well as full time RVers, NASCAR, and some other applications. Many commercial establishments don't have broadband, they are using DSL or slower VDSL for POS terminals. A lot of those places are doing 6+ channels at a time, requiring dozens of mbps just for video, often more. Many large casinos, airports, etc, have extensive networks in place, but don't want TV traffic on them, or they are managed by someone different, and DirecTV fills in the need for TV. In many of those applications, no cable is present at all, even though it's available in the surrounding area. Add in rural on top of those two, and you've got a decent customer base for DBS. They need to get their dish aligned properly. Nonetheless, there are a ton of places like that.
