As for the speed you get with HughesNet, it's simple. They provide the same high speed Internet connection in all areas:
Their download speeds are generally much faster than DSL.
With HughesNet, you have the choice of four data plans. These range from 10 to 50 GB of data per month. There is no hard data limit with HughesNet, so they won't cut you off or charge you more. Instead, you stay connected, but at reduced speeds - typically 1-3 Mbps.
If you've checked before and found no land-line Internet options at your location, then HughesNet might be the answer. Call us and find out if their satellite Internet service is a good fit for you:
As of 2021, HughesNet has over 1 million satellite Internet customers. This makes them the most popular satellite ISP currently available.
However, new competition in this space is emerging.
Other companies, like Starlink, are using low-orbit satellites to deliver faster download speeds - from 50 to 150 Mbps.
At present, HughesNet only uses geosynchronous satellites. However, they began exploring the use of low-orbit satellites in 2020. So, we may see them expand their speeds in the near future to match Starlink.
For now, HughesNet remains the leader in providing broadband Internet via satellite to Americans living in rural areas.
