HughesNet for Business Buyer’s Guide

Many of us work in areas where Internet options such as cable or fiber are not available, but we all deserve to be connected! HughesNet is satellite Internet, which reaches places other providers cannot and gives you the opportunity to be connected to high-speed Internet no matter where you work.


There are a few things to keep in mind when considering satellite Internet:

1. Satellite Internet is designed for those who work outside the reach of cable, fiber, or other Internet options.

2. Satellite Internet is not recommended for time-sensitive applications such as VPN or intensive video streaming.
