The new Hughesnet® is here! Now you can do it all with faster speeds, unlimited data, low latency rates, and new Hughesnet Fusion® plans for a more responsive internet experience.

Hughesnet is satellite internet reinvented, providing reliable online access no matter where you may live. Hughesnet plans allow you to stay connected, stream movies and music, play games online, access school resources, and more, all thanks to our new JUPITER™-powered home internet plans. So, exactly what is new with Hughesnet?

1. Faster Speeds

Hughesnet internet plans offer speeds of up to 100 Mbps for remarkably fast satellite internet, allowing you to stream HD movies, games online, and enjoy other high bandwidth activities. For reference, you only need 20 Mbps to stream 4K video, and 25 Mbps for most online games (actual speed varies depending on the number of network users and proximity to Wi-Fi sources). 

2. Unlimited Data

Hughesnet plans now come with unlimited data, so you can do more of what you love online and you will never get cut off or pay overage fees!

Each Hughesnet plan comes with two types of data: a set amount of Priority Data and unlimited Standard Data. Once you use all of your Priority Data, which offers the fastest download speeds, your plan will automatically switch to the unlimited Standard Data. Priority Data amounts reset every billing cycle and additional Priority Data can be purchased, if desired, with a Priority Data Token (tokens do not expire, and can be used whenever needed).

3. Whole Home Wi-Fi

All Hughesnet plans include Wi-Fi modems that support Wi-Fi 6, which is the latest standard in Wi-Fi technology for faster, more reliable connections. Optional Mesh Wi-Fi Nodes extend signals throughout your home or office and eliminate dead zones for a true Whole Home Wi-Fi.

4. Reduced Latency

Exclusive Fusion plans combine satellite and wireless technologies that reduce latency for a more responsive internet experience. No other internet provider in America offers a blended satellite internet/wireless experience, and we are excited to share this powerful new tool with the entire world. 

5. Available Where You Live

Hughesnet is available anywhere in the contiguous US, even in rural areas that lack access to cable and fiber infrastructure. Satellite internet levels the online playing field for rural users, who have traditionally been underserved by earthbound internet providers. No matter where you are, Hughesnet can get you online. All you need is a clear view of the southern sky and we will provide and install the satellite dish, as well as the Wi-Fi modem.
