Anybody know why internet service is not available on the Directv smaller dishes ( round/oval ), yet is on the larger Directway dish.

Bobo the larger directway dish is used so that you can receive enough signal for the system to work. Directway uses a FSS satellite which is not as strong a signal as the DBS satellites so a larger dish captures more signal.

Why do they not offer internet service using the same frequency being used for DirecTv and Dish Network?
