Speeds and uninterrupted use are not guaranteed and may vary based on a variety of factors including: the configuration of your computer, the number of concurrent users, network or Internet congestion, the capabilities and content of the websites you are accessing, network management practices as deemed necessary, and other factors.

HughesNet Internet: Data Plans With a Bonus

HughesNet is a dedicated high-speed internet solution for households and businesses across the United States. They have 4 data plans available ranging from 10 GB to 50 GB — all with 25 Mbps download speeds and 3 Mbps upload speeds. If you live in a rural area, it’s a viable option as it provides service in far-reaching areas other DSL, cable, and fiber internet providers aren’t able to go.

HughesNet plans offer all customers a Bonus Zone. This includes an additional 50 GB per month to use during off-peak hours between 2 am – 8 am, so you don’t use up your service plan data. Along with this Bonus Zone, HughesNet includes auto-compression features to help optimize web pages to load faster and use less data.

HughesNet Company Details

Formally known as Hughes Communications, HughesNet started in 1971 in the garage of one of its founders under the name Digital Communication Corporation (DCC). From those humble beginnings, it quickly rose in recognition and size as customers in rural and suburban areas grew in population. Today, it operates as a wholly-owned subsidiary of EchoStar, a larger worldwide satellite provider. HughesNet is one of the few internet providers that uses advanced satellite technology to deliver their internet and phone services — allowing them to be accessible from coast to coast in the United States.
