Launched on October 1, 2012, HughesNet® Gen4 Internet service is delivering dramatically greater speeds and enabling customers to do more online than ever before—reaching consumers and small businesses in North America no matter where they live or work. Powered by the EchoStar® XVII satellite with JUPITER™ high-throughput technology, the new service has triggered increased demand in what was already the fastest-growing business at Hughes—with over 600,000 HughesNet subscribers, the world’s #1 high-speed satellite Internet service.
Whether used for watching video clips, downloading music, shopping, chatting, or eLearning, HughesNet Gen4 gives customers the performance required to support today’s high-bandwidth applications. Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems, Gen4 is highly secure and offers user management tools that maximize the customer experience. For example, the Status Meter monitors up-to-the-minute usage, and Bonus Bytes provide an extra allowance that can be used during off-peak hours. Hughes Network Operations Centers are equipped to monitor customer networks at all times, and are staffed with qualified engineers to provide professional and reliable customer support.
HughesNet Gen4 offers three service plans to meet every budget—with speeds from 10 Mbps up to 15 Mbps—and additionally provides an upgrade program for existing customers. The Power Plan is ideal for homes with one computer, easily handling email, social media, shopping, casual downloads, and Web browsing. The Power PRO Plan offers a higher download speed and higher download allowance, perfect for homes with one or two computers, and for users who want to share many photos or video clips, and download music. The Power MAX Plan offers the best choice for users with multiple computers who spend a great deal of time on the Internet, watch videos, and do a considerable amount of downloading.
HughesNet Gen4 is built on the industry’s most advanced network of high-capacity satellites and on-the-ground equipment, with the cornerstone being the new EchoStar XVII satellite with JUPITER high-throughput technology. Setting a new standard of excellence in satellite Internet, HughesNet Gen4 frees people to live where they love and love where they live—and still stay connected.
