HughesNet serves the continental U.S., Hawaii, Canada, and parts of Alaska. HughesNet has been innovating satellite technology and has spent over a billion dollars developing a satellite internet service that will meet the needs of its customers. Its long experience has earned it recognition by the FCC for delivering on promised internet speeds. They have a 24-hour customer support department that ensures a wait time under 5 minutes. Prices may seem a little high when compared to prices in more competitive markets, but are comparable to other rural internet providers. Service activation is more difficult than some services because it requires the professional installation of a satellite dish.

These speeds are recommended for basic internet browsing, checking emails, music streaming, video streaming, and more. HughesNet does not however recommend that you use their Satellite Internet Service for VPNs, heavy downloading, third-party VoiP services, and gaming. These can take up a significant amount of bandwidth or perform poorly, because of the latency in signals that via satellite.
HughesNet has plans with data caps that range from 10 GB/month to 50 GB/month. If a customer hits their data limit, they may experience slower speeds until the next month.
