In rural Canada, often it's Sat TV + Cellular Internet, we have both from Bell here, we pay 235$ CAD, around 175 US, total for 100GB and a pretty basic TV package with 10 ala carte channels.

It really boggles the mind when you think that it took less time to wire all of Canada for POTS a hundred years ago than it is taking them to wire everyone for fiber... The gov PAID them to wire everyone to fiber TWENTY YEARS AGO, they invested it all on cellular towers instead. -_-

The CRTC ordered every Canadian ISP to offer an unlimited data plan to everyone in the nation TWO YEARS AGO. Still waiting... Wanna bet we'll wait 10-15 years more? Fucking incredible.

At this point, I think ISPs are running the Gov agencies supposed to regulate them pretty much everywhere in NA.

Back then it was about reaching new consumers and doing something amazing. Now, it's about shareholder value. And none of us here, or rather, not even all of us here combined, hold enough shares to matter.

That article about sattilite tv is bullocks. Its only talkinga bout AT&T.

I Quit DirecTV this year and moved to dish and it was the best decision i ever made. I love dish. If at&t quits Dish will just get bigger, or someone else will come along.
You missed the forest for the trees.

Dish Network just lost another 121K subscribers
Dish Network said it continues to bleed subscribers ...
so a few months later you see this Dish Loses 151,000 Pay TV Subscribers in Second Quarter

TLDR
The writing is on the wall.

But dish doesn't have its own internet, it just bundles with others, no? At least in most of the country.

They're hemorrhaging subscribers, anyway.

If you live outside one of these giant liberal cities you dont get 300GB downloads. Heck you would be lucky to get 10 or even 3 in some places.

Dish is a piece of shit buddy...just saying

The millions of people living in rural america are not going to suddenly get super internet and even if they did most of them would not want it.

I like having my TV and my Internet separated. Im sure i am not the only one.
