Blazing Fast Broadband - HughesNet

by - 7/17/2008

What is Satellite Internet?

Something that’s personally helped my life a LOT is the switchover from Dial-up to Broadband, which is basically high speed internet. Key point is - not all Broadband are created equal.

Since an estimated 40% of North America isn’t reached by terrestrial broadband (ground-based, thus geographically limited) such as cable or DSL, experts agree no other fast internet coverage is as good as Satellite Internet. It isn’t reliant on any fixed lines or infrastructure and uses a satellite dish for connectivity, besides providing a tremendous area of coverage.

Introduction: HughesNet

Fast internet connection can be yours, even way out in the boondocks, via Hughes: Net, America's #1 choice for broadband by satellite. By combining the best of landline and wireless broadband technologies, state-of-the-art management systems, and more than 30 years of satellite communications experience, HughesNet delivers a high standard of broadband communication.

Broad Overview

You'll enjoy faster surfing, faster downloads and instant email access – all without tying up your phone line. And since its Satellite Internet broadband, HughesNet isn’t limited by geography. All the small satellite dish needs is a clear view of the southern sky! They use an advanced two-way satellite technology to give you a super fast, always on Internet connection, including the ability to network to multiple computers.

How HughesNet works

Choose the HughesNet plan that most suits you and simply place your order online or by phone. You don’t pay until your system is installed and activated. A certified HughesNet installer will set up a convenient appointment, and then come 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 over the Internet and delivers it to your computer almost instantly.

Download Speeds and Plans

With download speeds ranging from 728 kbps to 2.5 Mbps, HughesNet also offers a suite of convenient connectivity solutions, be it business, home, enterprise or even a government agency.

They have FIVE great plans to choose from: Home, Pro, ProPlus, Elite, Elite Plus. Using the simple and easy-to-understand Plan Comparison Table, it’s easy to evaluate the comparative speeds. Further exploration will help potential customers view in-depth details of each service plan’s features, including payment options and other elective attributes.

One BIG PLUS is the $100 Mail-In Rebate which applies to each plan. Buy a new HughesNet satellite system and get it activated before 9/30/2008 to avail this great offer! Other common factors with regards to all plans are:

  • Installation and Satellite systems are included
