Plus, built-in Wi-Fi is included so customers can connect their various handhelds, computer devices, and Internet TVs to the service. With HughesNet, customers can browse the web, watch movies, send and receive email, enjoy social media, conduct online banking, and more; Customer Care is available around the clock.
“Now, with the launch of HughesNet, everyone across the country can enjoy the fast, reliable Internet service used by more than 1.4 million customers throughout the Americas,” said Vinod Shukla, Chairman, HNS de Mexico S.A. de C.V. “In Mexico— even in areas where fiber and cable services are not available—Internet access is now possible through HughesNet.”
