Overview of HughesNet Internet Deals
HughesNet satellite internet is a great option for rural customers who may not have access to traditional cable or fiber internet plans. Satellite internet is usually best for consumers who need to fulfill basic requirements like sending and receiving emails, browsing through social media, or creating online documents and spreadsheets. If you are a gamer or like to stream videos frequently, you may find satellite internet plans through HughesNet and other providers rather limiting.
That said, HughesNet is still one of the best internet providers for people in rural areas. Though satellite internet is not always the fastest choice on the market, HughesNet offers plenty of incentives to choose their service over the competition. Let’s take a closer look at HughesNet internet discounts, deals, and plan options.
HughesNet Communications Discounts
Unlike some other providers, HughesNet does not offer frequent discount opportunities. Currently, there are no discounts for military members, senior citizens, or students.
HughesNet Internet-Only Deals
Typically, acquiring satellite internet is expensive due to the installation costs. Fortunately, this is not an issue with HughesNet. All HughesNet internet-only plans come with free home installation, regardless of your location. Additionally, as one of the largest providers of satellite internet in the United States, HughesNet charges some of the lowest monthly premiums on the market, especially if you’re willing to sign a long-term contract. Here’s a more in-depth breakdown of HughesNet’s current internet-only deals:
|Plan name||Monthly start price||Download & Data Threshold|
|HughesNet 10 GB Plan||$60/mo||25 Mbps /10 GB|
|HughesNet 20 GB Plan||$70/mo||25 Mbps /20 GB|
|HughesNet 30 GB Plan||$100/mo||25 Mbps /30 GB|
|HughesNet 50 GB Plan||$150/mo||25 Mbps /50 GB|
All of the internet-only plans have the same stipulations. The promotional rates last for the first six months of the contract, after which time you will be charged at the standard rate. To qualify for the promotional rate, you must sign a two-year contract. As previously mentioned, satellite installation is free with every plan, though you will have to pay an equipment rental fee. The fee is $9.99 during the six-month promotional period and $14.99 every month thereafter.
While the data caps may seem rather limiting, HughesNet does offer an additional 50 GB of free data usage per month during non-peak hours (2 a.m. – 8 a.m.). Fortunately, you will not be charged a fee if you go over your data cap, but your download speeds will be throttled to around 3 Mbps. If you wish to regain your standard speeds after going over your data limit, you can purchase “Data Tokens,” which cost roughly $3 per GB.
HughesNet Bundle Deals
Currently, you can get a great double-play bundle with HughesNet internet and DIRECTV. For just $64.99 per month, you get the Entertainment All Included plan, which provides internet and 160-plus channels. If you want more for your money, you can also opt for the Choice All Included plan, which costs $69.99 per month and provides internet and 185-plus channels. Finally, you can get the internet and 250-plus channels for just $84.99 per month with the Ultimate All Included plan.
It’s important to note that all of these promotional prices last for the first 12 months of service. To qualify, you must sign up for a two-year contract. After the promotional period ends, you can expect to pay $102, $122, and $151 per month for each plan, respectively. Also keep in mind that plan availability will depend on your location.
Finally, if you want to bundle the internet and phone, or go for the triple play with DIRECTV, you can do so thanks to HughesNet Voice. This service uses Voice-over-IP (VoIP) to connect your calls via satellite. If you bundle Voice with your HughesNet internet plan, you can save $10 per month during the promotional period. The bundled Voice service costs $19.95 per month for the first six months and $29.95 per month after that.
How to Lower Your HughesNet Bill
The best way to lower your HughesNet bill is to opt for a long-term internet plan. If you want to bundle services, you can save even more by adding DIRECTV and HughesNet Voice when you sign up. Though the data cap is pretty low, the Internet 10 GB is the best deal at just $49.99 per month for the first six months.
You can also avoid going over your data cap to keep your bill as low as possible. While HughesNet does not charge overage fees, you may be tempted to buy Data Tokens to restore your internet speed, which could quickly add up if you use a lot of data. You can keep your bill low by avoiding Data Tokens and making use of the extra 50 GB of monthly data during non-peak hours.
