HughesNet is a satellite Internet Service Provider (ISP). It’s perfect for remote and rural areas because its coverage area is one of the biggest in the US. It offers broadband internet speeds to most of the country.
The newest version of HughesNet internet service is here and it’s called HughesNet Gen 5. It’s faster and lets you use more data.
HughesNet Gen 5 comes from the newest HughesNet satellite, EchoStar XIX. This enormous satellite delivers broadband speeds using JUPITER™ System technology. This improved tech allows HughesNet to offer faster internet speeds to more people than ever before.
HughesNet has download speeds up to 25 Mbps and upload speeds up to 3 Mbps.
You can pair your HughesNet satellite internet with TV service from DIRECTV or DISH. Both have great deals on packages that include sports, news, premium, and local channels. DIRECTV packages start at $35 per month, and DISH TV starts at about $60 per month.

HughesNet Voice plans start at about $30 per month, but you can get a $10 per month discount for a year if you order both HughesNet Internet and Voice.
This is For: Anyone who casually browse the web and maybe streams a movie or two once in a while.
Why: You shouldn’t anticipate ridiculous speeds or large data caps from HughesNet. But what this satellite ISP does deliver on is a lower price than doesn’t dramatically spring up during your contract.
