3 Reasons Why HughesNet Remains America’s #1 Choice for Satellite Internet

America #1

Whether you’re relying on it to work or learn from home, stay connected to loved ones, or keep up with your healthcare and finances, the Internet has become intertwined in every aspect of our lives. While many of us take our Internet connection for granted, terrestrial infrastructure can’t provide connectivity to everyone, contributing to a vast digital divide. Fortunately, satellite Internet options like HughesNet® can help close the gap and connect people who live beyond the reach of cable and fiber to the Internet. Here’s why HughesNet is America’s #1 choice for satellite Internet.

1. Strong History of Success 

For over 50 years, Hughes has been in the business of connecting people, enterprises and things. From its start in the 1970s designing telecommunications products to the invention of satellite Internet in 1996, Hughes has continued to remain at the forefront of satellite technology.

Today, over 1.5 million subscribers benefit from a HughesNet connection. HughesNet has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as the ‘Best Satellite Internet Service Provider of 2021-22.’ To learn more about the long history of success at Hughes, check out our most recent blog, The Past, Present, and Future of High-Speed Satellite Internet.

2. Available Where You Live

If you have a clear view of the Southern sky, you can access high-speed satellite Internet. HughesNet goes where other providers don’t – so even people beyond the reach of cable and fiber can live where they love and still be connected. HughesNet is now available in the U.S., Puerto Rico and many Latin American countries. Powered by a fleet of satellites in orbit, HughesNet is fast Internet for rural areas available at an affordable price. Enter your address here to see plans and pricing where you live.

3. Continuous Investment in Innovation 

Hughes constantly seeks new ways to expand and innovate satellite Internet. As an example, HughesNet includes intelligent technologies like Video Data Saver, which automatically adjusts data rates and speeds when watching video to deliver great picture quality while using less of your data. Service also comes with built-in Wi-Fi and optional boosters to extend Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home.

Our newest satellite, JUPITER 3, is under construction. After it launches later this year, JUPITER 3 will bring HughesNet customers more capacity and faster speeds, with service plans of 50 and 100 Mbps down.

At Hughes, we are committed to bringing people who live beyond the reach of cable and fiber the best home Internet. This commitment is not only reflected in our past, but also in the steps we are taking for the future. If you need a high-speed connection where you live, the choice is easy, it’s America’s #1 choice.
