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.

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.

The Internet is provided through a few different mediums. Some common ones include through telephone or cable lines, or through fiber optic lines. These start at a transmission center, and are linked to hubs, which then link to individual homes and businesses. HughesNet satellite Internet connects you directly to the transmission center, because it’s in space rather than on the ground. Using Ku-band radio waves, satellite Internet provides you with broadband Internet directly to your satellite by handling the communications between you and the Internet through space rather than wires or cables.
Today, everything is on the Internet. We bank in the Internet, and buy many of our products on the Internet. Applying for jobs, getting an education, or applying for government benefits are all done on the Internet. You can even visit a doctor over the Internet instead of having to go to an office that might be miles away. Having an Internet connection gives you a window to the world when you need it, no matter how far away you live from everywhere else. Satellite Internet from HughesNet makes you your own hub, without having to lay miles of line or wires. Whether you want to do business from a mountain cabin or buy supplies for your island getaway, satellite Internet can make it easier to enjoy living in the place you love!
