HughesNet Availability

As a satellite provider, HughesNet’s service is available virtually anywhere with a view of the Southern sky – where satellite transmitting service is located. The HughesNet service area for Gen 5 includes Alaska and Puerto Rico, Brazil, India, and some parts of Europe.

The main issue with HughesNet availability isn’t whether or not it can reach you, but whether or not you have a clear space for installation of a reception dish. Trees, buildings, mountainsides, and any other physical obstacle between you and the satellite can cause problems. Luckily, since HughesNet is primarily used by rural customers, there isn’t much of a problem with tall buildings blocking signals that satellite TV providers face in urban areas.

HughesNet Connection Speed

HughesNet internet speed is limited to providing download speeds up to 25 Mbps and upload speeds up to 3 Mbps.

Most current satellite services fall short of wired alternatives in terms of both overall performance and reliability. Satellite internet from HughesNet has three key parts: the transmitter that sends data to space, the satellite that receives it, and the dish in subscriber yards that picks up the signal.

The concern with this setup is high latency or lag, which is the time it takes for data to travel to and from you, the provider, and satellite. This “lag” can interfere with applications that are time-sensitive—like gaming or two-way videos. A 700-800 millisecond latency is about average for satellite service, compared to 40-100 milliseconds with cable or DSL service.

HughesNet Pricing

The pricing for HughesNet is a bit unusual since each plan offers the same speed. The difference in each plan is the data cap.

While the speed is enough to browse and even stream in high definition (HD), HughesNet’s data caps are quite restrictive for heavy internet users and large families, in addition to gaming and streaming fans. Fortunately, HughesNet offers two ways to use and get more data: bonus data and data tokens. For more details, read our HughesNet Plans and Pricing page.

HughesNet customer support can be reached at (866) 347-3292. If you want to return equipment and cancel your service outright, the retention department can be reached through the customer support line. HughesNet business customers can call (800) 347-3272 to reach HughesNet’s business customer service center.
