Satellite Internet noun / Satellite Internet is a fast, secure way to connect. Your computer or mobile device requests a Web page by sending a signal to our satellite 22,000 miles away. Our satellite then contacts the Hughes Network Operations Center (NOC) to locate the specific Webpage requested. Finally, the website beams the information back to the NOC and then to your Hughes dish and modem. In times of disaster, satellite takes on an even more critical role. It presents the only true alternate communications path when terrestrial wireline and wireless networks are most vulnerable to disruption and outages—and terminals can be deployed immediately after disaster strikes to provide connectivity in support of life-saving emergency response and recovery activities.
