We currently have DirecTv and use my phone hotspot for Internet. We will be here full time in September. Does anyone know what Internet or cable services are available for here? Or what works the best?

My best bet would be Verizon fios but don't know if it's available in PC or PG. Cutting edge technology.

We are definitely not on the cutting edge here. Just about last in high tech

From what I understand, PC has some type of exclusive with Comcast and Direct TV, Verizon service is not available. I don't quite understand why we don't have a choice as to what service we want.

Verizon will not expand to areas where they can't secure enough customers. It is too costly to run the fiber cables for Fios.
