HughesNet Voice delivers home phone service over your satellite Internet connection. No matter where you live, you can enjoy affordable home phone service with FREE features such as Call Waiting, Caller ID, Call Forwarding, and more.
How Does HughesNet Voice Work?
HughesNet Voice uses advanced Voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology to deliver a feature-rich home phone service over your satellite connection. New HughesNet customers will have their Analog Telephone Adapter (ATA) set up by their installer during the installation appointment which will route your calls through your satellite modem and dish without using your plan data. It’s as easy as that!
What Plan Options Are Available And How Much Does The Service Cost?
HughesNet Voice is available with two plan options, either with or without a two-year term commitment. International calling plans are also available to add on. To see our current HughesNet voice plans visit HughesNet Voice.
What features are standard with HughesNet Voice?
With HughesNet Voice you get a number of useful standard features including Call Waiting, Caller ID, Outbound Caller ID, Call Forwarding, Call Block, Simultaneous Ring, Enhanced Voicemail (accessible via dial-in and forwarded via email), a Web Self-Care Portal, and unlimited long-distance calling to the continental United States and Canada.
How affordable is HughesNet Voice compared to a traditional landline phone?
With HughesNet Voice you don’t need a traditional landline phone anymore! And because HughesNet Voice plans are so affordable, you can save up to 45% over standard home phone service.
Can I choose my own phone number or keep a number I already have?
If you qualify for a local number: Yes, when you register for HughesNet Voice you may either select a new telephone number or transfer an existing, preferred telephone number to your HughesNet Voice account through a process called “porting.” There is no additional charge to you for placing a porting request; however, once a porting request is placed, it cannot be canceled by Hughes. If you change providers and want to carry the same number with you, you will need to submit a new porting request through your new provider.
If you did NOT qualify for a local number: You can choose a new non-local telephone number across the continental United States, but you may not port your existing local number to HughesNet.
What is included with Voice installation?
For new HughesNet Internet and Voice customers, on the day of installation your installer will arrive with the dish, the modem, and the HughesNet Voice ATA (analog telephone adapter). The installer will install your Internet service and set up and activate your Voice service. You will be required to accept the Voice Terms and Conditions prior to completing the Voice activation. You’ll also be shown a self-service website where you can update, change, and monitor your Voice service.
If I exceed my plan Data, can I still make calls?
Yes. The Data you receive through your HughesNet Internet plan does not impact calls using the HughesNet Voice service.
What is Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) and does Hughes provide service that supports it?
TRS is a service that allows individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing to communicate via the telephone network to other parties. The customer uses special TTY (keyboard and terminal) equipment to communicate to a call center, and personnel at the call center relay the typed text to the other party on the line. Responses from the other party are taken by the call center and sent via text to the customer’s TTY equipment. Hughes does provide service for the deaf and hard of hearing with the use of IP-enabled TTY equipment.
HughesNet’s telephone service boasts extensive coverage that extends beyond the United States, encompassing both Canada and Mexico within its inclusive plans. Furthermore, for those seeking even broader global connectivity, HughesNet offers a selection of convenient add-on packs that enable you to make calls to a remarkable 60 additional countries, ensuring that you can stay in touch with friends, family, and colleagues no matter where they are located across the world.
Telephone service from HughesNet comes with all the features you love. Call waiting, caller ID, voicemail, call forwarding and call blocking, all on an easy-to-manage web portal. Plus, if it’s available you can keep your old phone number when you switch to HughesNet!

Absolutely! HughesNet has gone the extra mile by incorporating built-in Wi-Fi into its services, making it effortless for you to connect your wireless devices within the comfort of your home. The HughesNet Wi-Fi Modem stands out with its cutting-edge technology, boasting dual-band 802.11ac functionality, providing both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

Additionally, for added security, there’s a separate guest Wi-Fi network, keeping your primary home network secure. Worry not about installation and support; HughesNet has you covered, ensuring a seamless experience.
Let’s break down the information into easy to read bullet points:
- HughesNet Wi-Fi Modem (HT2000W) offers two networks: 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
- The 2.4GHz network’s name starts with “hug2g,” while the 5GHz network begins with “hug5g.”
Choose the network based on your home setup:
- 2.4GHz is suitable for all wireless devices, with a longer transmission range and better obstacle penetration.
- However, it’s more susceptible to interference, potentially affecting speed.
- 5GHz is ideal for newer devices like laptops and phones, offering higher data transmission capacity.
- It struggles to penetrate solid walls and objects, leading to weaker signals at a distance.
- For video streaming devices like Roku or Amazon Fire Stick, use the 5GHz network if you have a strong signal.
- Determine signal strength using the Wi-Fi Gauge feature on the HughesNet Mobile App.
