To many people, living outside the city is the ideal life. But one thing they don’t want to compromise on is staying connected. And yet, in the U.S. today, there are an estimated 10 million to 15 million households and small businesses that are unserved or underserved by land-based broadband services. That’s where HughesNet® Gen4 comes in.
HughesNet Gen4 delivers a robust satellite Internet service that is available everywhere—even where cable and DSL don’t reach—so people can live where they love and still stay connected. With download speeds from 10 Mbps up to 15 Mbps and download allowances of up to 40 Gb per month, HughesNet Gen4 lets users do more of what they want online—whether it’s for their home life, community life, or work life.
Many subscribers have been willing to share their experiences using HughesNet, the world’s #1 high-speed satellite Internet service. Here are just a handful of stories from the more than 900,000 HughesNet subscribers.
After retiring, Donna and Fred settled on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, an idyllic location that offers history and rural peace in a hilly, tree-studded landscape. While Donna appreciates her area’s peace and beauty, the landline Internet services border on the rustic.
Before HughesNet, Donna and Fred had to rely on slow dial-up Internet access, and maintaining their two publishing websites—Bigwater Publishing, LLC and SelfPublishingNavigator.com—was dif- ficult. “Gen4 gives us double the speed we had before and has really snapped up our browsing time,” said Donna.
Imagine Ponderosa forests crisscrossed by streams. The rolling Black Hills. The Devil’s Tower National Monument towering majestically on the skyline.
Daniel’s family has owned a 650-acre ranch five miles from Devil’s Tower, Wyoming for decades. With HughesNet satellite Internet access, life on the prairie didn’t mean having to give up contact with friends and family all over the world or having trouble keeping Daniel’s woodworking business humming.
“HughesNet Gen4 enabled me to stay connected when I moved out here,” said Daniel. “I’m on Facebook and Google+ a lot. I talk to my children and friends in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Florida, and out on the West Coast. I also attend online meetings with people from as far away as Spain and Thailand.”
Even amid the enthusiasm for bird watching in Montana where 40 percent of people participate, Gary is a standout with 328 verified bird sightings in 2007— an American Birders Association record. High-speed Internet access is critical for Gary’s personal bird watching and his business, GoBirdMontana, which takes groups on birding tours. Gary also needs Internet access for bird research and writing birding articles.
”I could not have made all of those sightings without Internet service. People email from all over the state when they see birds. While we’re in the field we record all of our sightings on our cell phones, and when we push Send, the information goes right into a national database and my home computer,” Gary said. ”I use it constantly, which is why I went to HughesNet.”
Life. Connected. That’s what HughesNet Gen4 is all about.
