No Hard Data Limits^
With HughesNet, hard data limits are a thing of the past. We’re committed to helping customers stay connected no matter what. That means even if you exceed your satellite Internet plan data, there’s no reason to stress! We won’t cut you off or charge you more. You’ll be able to stay connected at reduced speeds until the next billing cycle. If you need to increase your speed immediately, you can always use a Data Token to return to your fastest speeds.
Data-saving features
HughesNet automatically compresses and optimizes web content with built-in SmartTechnologies to make webpages load faster while using less of your data. HughesNet also includes a video data-saver so you can watch more videos using less of your data. It adjusts data rates for streaming video to deliver DVD quality, so you can watch 3 times more video.††

**The HughesNet Gen5 service plans are designed to deliver download speeds of 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 3 Mbps, but individual customers may experience different speeds at different times of the day. Speeds and uninterrupted use are not guaranteed and may vary based on a variety of factors including: the configuration of your computer, the number of concurrent
users, network or Internet congestion, the capabilities and content of the websites you are accessing, network management practices as deemed necessary, and other factors. When you connect to the HughesNet service using Wi-Fi, your experience will vary based on your proximity to the Wi-Fi source and the strength of the signal.
