    Do any of you have Direct TV as your Internet provider? Can you connect an iPhone to it over Wi-Fi?

    The iPhone will connect to any Wi-Fi source (assuming you have a router).

    Do you have DSL available in your area? Directv uses 10 different companies to provide DSL service.

    If no DSL available they use Wildblue which will install another satellite for your internet service.

    Regardless you will be able to connect a wireless router.

    I would be curious to know the place that would have AT&T 3G coverage, but not available DSL, Cable, or Fiber (FiOS/Uverse). I'd bet those places are few and far between.
