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

America #1

Terrestrial Internet infrastructure focuses on urban areas, and often does not extend to rural or remote locations. The result is a vast digital divide, with some people denied access to the Internet. The best Satellite Internet options like HughesNet® help close that gap and connect people who live beyond the reach of cable and fiber-based Internet providers. Here’s why HughesNet is America’s #1 choice for satellite Internet.


Why Choose Satellite Internet?

High-speed Internet in rural areas is essential, whether you’re relying on it to work or learn from home, stay connected to loved ones, or manage your healthcare and finances. HughesNet internet plans connect rural and remote areas to the Internet without the need for cable or phone line infrastructure. A satellite dish, a modem, and a clear view of the Southern sky are all you need to get online. 

Satellite internet is available across North America and can deliver broadband-level speeds. The best satellite internet is cost-efficient, often provides reliable internet speeds, and allows for quick recovery after natural disasters, as most of the internet provider’s infrastructure is safely in orbit.
