FAQ

What Is HughesNet?
HughesNet is the high-speed Internet service provider (ISP) that's available to everyone in the contiguous U.S. with a clear view of the southern sky. HughesNet uses satellite broadband technology to give you a super-fast, always-on Internet connection-so you can enjoy the Internet the way it was meant to be. Hughes Net gets you online instantly, lets you surf and open pages faster and download files in a fraction of the time it takes a dial-up modem.
 
How does HughesNet work?
HughesNet delivers high-speed wireless Internet over satellite-not over your telephone line-so you can surf and talk at the same time. A certified HughesNet installer will connect your computer to a satellite broadband modem and link it to a satellite dish (antenna). The satellite dish sends and receives information (i.e., email, Web pages, files) over the Internet and delivers it your computer almost instantly!
