HughesNet Gen5 in the News

HughesNet Gen5 is available now! Check out what’s being said about the next generation of satellite Internet from HughesNet!

"Tuesday’s announcement focuses on overall faster connections—including higher-capacity video features—provided by a powerful satellite launched last year, combined with capabilities of a number of other spacecraft. Customers will have download speeds of 25 megabits per second nationwide, which Hughes said currently isn’t standard on any other satellite network serving the U.S. " – Andy Pasztor, The Wall Street Journal

“The big perk of this is that DSL and satellite customer who previously weren't able to use streaming services like Hulu, Netflix or Amazon Prime will now have the opportunity.” – Alex Knapp, Forbes

“Hot on the heels of its fifth-generation service announcement, satellite internet provider HughesNet has quadrupled its data caps with new service plans, bringing roomier internet headroom to its million rural US customers.”– Sascha Segan, PCMag

“Now EchoStar subsidiary Hughes Network Systems has announced that its new HughesNet Gen5 service, which goes live on March 16, has cleared a big hurdle and will be the first to achieve the Federal Communications Commission's defined broadband speeds of 25Mbps downloads and 3Mbps uploads across the continental US and "key areas" in Alaska.” – David Carnoy, CNET

“Hughes is not just targeting rural areas, either; it sees its service as being valuable in suburban settings as well. When Hughes Network Systems goes live with its HughesNet Gen5 satellite-based broadband service on March 16, it will be targeting the 18 million or so households across the United States that are either unserved or experiencing painfully slow wireline Internet services.” – Monica Alleven, FierceWireless
