HughesNet Buyer's Guide

Many of us live or work in areas where Internet options such as cable or fiber are not available, but we all deserve to be connected! HughesNet is satellite Internet, which reaches places other providers cannot and gives you the opportunity to be connected to high-speed Internet no matter where you live.


There are a few things to keep in mind when considering satellite Internet:

1. Satellite Internet is designed for those who live out of reach of cable, fiber, or other Internet options.

2. Satellite Internet is not recommended for time-sensitive applications such as VPN, real-time gaming, or intensive video streaming.

If satellite Internet is right for you, read more to learn how you can get the most out of a HughesNet plan.
