Secure & Advanced Technology
HughesNet, the next generation of the nation’s #1 choice for satellite Internet service, is powered by EchoStar XIX, the world’s highest-capacity broadband satellite. EchoStar XIX, with JUPITER™ System technology, covers the contiguous United States and Alaska, and connects a greater number of households and small businesses with the fastest satellite Internet speeds available from coast to coast.
More data. More fun.
All four plans offer our Bonus Zone feature. This is an additional 50GB/month that our customers can use during the off-peak hours of 2 am to 8 am. The Bonus Zone use is over and above your service plan data, so you can schedule system updates, large downloads, or anything you want to do without using your service plan hours.
Another unique feature we offer our HughesNet customers is an end to hard data limits.† If you reach your data limit on your plan, you are never cut off or billed more to stay connected. We continue to provide internet service at reduced speeds, allowing you to keep using your service. If you want to have full-speed access, you can choose to use a Data Token until your next billing cycle.
HughesNet® | Voice
Wherever you live, you can get Internet access and great phone service too! HughesNet Voice is optimized to work over your satellite connection, so it doesn’t interfere with your Internet use and doesn’t affect your service plan data.
Frequently Asked Questions:
When you enter a web address into your browser, it sends out a signal. With HughesNet satellite Internet, that signal goes into space, to HughesNet satellites. It is then sent to a center called a NOC, which seeks out the web address and sends it back to you through the satellite. This all happens in less than a second. Cable and DSL do this through wires and dialup does this through phone lines, but wires can’t reach everywhere and dialup is very slow.
