What is Satellite Internet?
How it Works
Similar to satellite TV, satellite internet offers you a high-speed internet connection without the need for a phone line or hard-wired cable. A certified HughesNet installer will connect your computer to a satellite modem which is linked to a satellite dish (antenna). The dish is typically mounted on the roof of your home. Information is sent and received through the Hughes satellite dish and processed by the modem to give you one of the fastest and most reliable high speed internet connections available today. Schedule your installation online.
HughesNet is a super fast, always-on high-speed internet connection that uses satellite technology. By using a satellite instead of depending on land-based solutions (like cable and DSL), HughesNet can offer a high speed internet connection to every household in the contiguous U.S.†! That means HughesNet reaches your home, even if DSL and cable don't. All you need is a clear view of the southern sky.
