How Can I Get DirecTV Internet Without a Home Phone?

by Thomas McNish

When the Internet was first popularized in the 1990s, most people had to use their existing phone lines to get online. Today, however, there are several different ways to get Internet access without plugging your computer into your phone jack. This also means that you can surf the web without subscribing to a phone service, which is becoming increasingly beneficial, as more homes are opting for cell phones in lieu of land lines.

Decide how much you're willing to spend on Internet service. Part of the advantage of having Internet service without a land line is that it could potentially be cheaper.

Research companies such as DirecTV and Dish Network that provide satellite Internet service without requiring you to have a land line.

Tell customer service representatives that you're only interested in Internet, and you don't want to get home phone service. If you already have a satellite TV provider, ask about cancelling your land line.
