What is HughesNet

HughesNet is the high-speed Internet solution that’s available to everyone in the contiguous U.S. with a clear view of the southern sky. HughesNet uses satellite technology to give you a super-fast, always-on Internet connection-so you can enjoy the Internet the way it was meant to be. HughesNet gets you online instantly, lets you surf and open pages faster and download files in a fraction of the time it takes a dial-up modem.

How Does HughesNet Work?

HughesNet delivers high-speed Internet over satellite-not over your telephone line-so you can surf and talk at the same time. A certified HughesNet installer will connect your computer to a satellite modem and link it to a satellite dish (antenna) that’s typically mounted on the roof of your home. The satellite dish sends and receives information (i.e., email, Web pages, files) over the Internet and delivers it your computer almost instantly!
