Get answers to your questions about HughesNet

Whenever you use the internet, you use data. Each HughesNet package comes with a data limit per month. How much data you use will depend on the type of internet activity and how frequently and how long you stay connected to the internet.

If you exceed your monthly data limit with HughesNet, you can still connect to the internet but you will experience reduced speeds for the rest of your billing cycle. The good news is that you won’t be charged extra for data overages.

Satellite internet is a wireless means of connection to the web. In contrast, cable, DSL and fiber internet all used wired transmission and connection.

With satellite internet, data travels between a dish at your home, the network operation center and a satellite in outer space. Any home with a clear view of the southern sky should be able to receive satellite internet.

 People who live in rural regions or where options for cable and DSL internet are limited, tend to choose satellite internet. That’s because cable internet and DSL providers tend to have broader coverage in more densely-populated areas where TV and phone lines are already in place. Satellite internet is wireless and doesn’t rely on phone lines or cable wiring to deliver a signal.

If you live in a rural area or have limited options for cable or DSL internet, Hughesnet may be a good option for your internet service. Compared to other satellite internet providers like Exede, HughesNet offers greater coverage, up to 25 Mbps download speeds on all plans and lower prices for the speeds and data allowances that you get with HughesNet Gen5 internet service.


If you reach your monthly data limit and want to boost your speeds back to normal, you can purchase HughesNet Data Tokens. These blocks of extra data range from 3 to 25 GB and do not expire.
