You can buy this equipment, or you can lease it for a small fee on your monthly bill, but leasing it provides you with complementary hardware updates whenever they occur, and is the best value.
HughesNet Gen 5 packages all provide download speeds of 25 Mbps, and are distinguished by the amount of data they offer. 1-3 Mbps is sufficient speed for simple activities, such as checking social media feeds or email. 25 Mbps download speeds enable HughesNet users to do more intensive online activities, like stream video and play online games. Upload speeds of around 3 Mbps are typical even for cable and DSL connections, and are mostly used to send requests when you search for something online. It is also plenty to make video calls to family, clients and business contacts, online classes, and telemedicine visits. HughesNet provides 3 Mbps upload speed standard with your data plan.
Since the HT2000W modem/router comes with built-in Wi-Fi, this Internet connection is not limited to computers that are plugged into the modem directly. Your whole household can enjoy the benefits of broadband speeds, even if you live nowhere near cable or telephone lines. Any device that can get Wi-Fi, such as your cell phone, tablet, laptop, or even gaming console, can connect to HughesNet service.
The NOC’s job is to seek out the web address you, the user, request when you type it into your browser. Your request is beamed to the NOC through the satellite, and the NOC’s response is beamed back to you through the satellite. Satellite Internet is really that simple.
You get the same 25 Mbps speeds across all HughesNet unlimited plans, which means you get broadband speeds that are faster than even some cable and DSL connections. You get all the equipment you need leased to you for a low monthly price. You get the Bonus Zone and access to Data Tokens, all on a 2-year contract that ensures your prices never change the entire time.
These days, the most common measurement for data is gigabytes (GB). All HughesNet packages are GB plans, which means you get the amount of GB in your plan to use during regular plan hours, not including your Bonus Zone data. This simplifies deciding which plan is right, because all you need is an idea of how much data you use each month.
20 GB of Data
30 GB of Data
50 GB of Data
The HughesNet Bonus Zone is between 2 a.m. and 8 a.m. It is a free 50 GB per month that can be used during those hours without affecting your plan data. This is a great time for downloading big files or games, doing updates to your operating system, and other routine maintenance. Your connection during these hours is always 25 Mbps as long as you have Bonus Zone data.
