Professional Installation

All HughesNet Business Internet service plans include equipment and professional installation designed for commercial business locations.

Installation and operation is simple. A certified installer will arrive at your business location with all the necessary equipment to mount the satellite antenna on the roof, outside wall or other appropriate location; setup the satellite modem in the manager's office or co-located with a back-office PC; and install the cable to connect the satellite dish to the modem. If your installation is more complex and requires work beyond the scope of a standard installation, the installer will provide a quote at the time of installation.

What's Included:

  • 25' of cable trenching (in soft ground). Note: Conduit not included.
  • Up to 150' of dual RG-6 cable from antenna to either PC or router.
  • Antenna system grounding up to 35'.
  • Connection to a single device, either PC or router.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires that only trained professionals install broadband satellite systems, like HughesNet®. So relax and leave the installation to us!
