New Internet Continuity Service for Small Business
Hughes offers satellite Internet connectivity backup service to protect small businesses from costly outages
In July, Hughes launched its HughesNet Internet Continuity service, a subscription-based connectivity backup service for small businesses that keeps the Internet up and running in the event of unexpected outages. The service provides small businesses affordable protection against losses due to cable, fiber, or DSL outages.
“Whether as a result of DSL degradation, equipment malfunction, or severe weather, terrestrial Internet outages are commonplace,” said Peter Gulla, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Hughes. “For small businesses that rely on the Internet, an unexpected outage can hurt their bottom line. We created HughesNet Internet Continuity to give small business owners an affordable, automatic backup system to maintain business as usual when terrestrial connectivity fails.”
HughesNet Internet Continuity utilizes a Wi-Fi modem, antenna, radio, and a failover router to establish a system that switches connectivity from terrestrial to satellite and back again, automatically. This enables business functions such as credit card processing and web services to continue working as long as the power remains on.
“An outage can cost a small business thousands of dollars per day in lost revenue and employee productivity,” said Gulla. “Traditional backup options rely on 4G networks and suffer from inconsistent or spotty coverage. Satellite Internet Continuity provides reliable service and offers additional data at a significantly lower cost than 4G backup plans.”
HughesNet Internet Continuity offers download speeds of 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 3 Mbps.
