How Hughesnet Satellite Internet Works

In a matter of seconds, your data travels to space and back on the following path:

1. Browser/App → Modem

You open a browser or app on any device, which sends a data request to your modem.

2. Modem → Satellite Dish

Your modem receives the data request and passes it to your home satellite dish.

3. Satellite Dish → Satellite

Your satellite dish beams the data request up to a Hughesnet satellite over radio waves.

4. Satellite → App Server

The satellite receives the request, then sends its answer back along the same path. Your next action restarts the process.

What can I do with satellite internet service?

All Hughesnet satellite internet plans offer the bandwidth for everyday activities including browsing, email, social media, and working from home on occasion.

Depending on your plan, you may also have enough speed to stream, game, and work from home more often. Keep in mind, the more you do these high-bandwidth activities, the more Priority Data you’ll need to keep your monthly speeds more consistent.

How fast is Hughesnet?

The new Hughesnet is faster than ever, with top speeds up to 100 Mbps** in select areas and most other plans offering up to 50 Mbps**. Plus, with new, lower latency in select areas, response time is even faster than most satellite services.

Once you use your Priority Data, you’ll have unlimited Standard Data1 until the following month. You’re always welcome to purchase Priority Data Tokens or upgrade your Priority Data plan if you want more.

Minimum term required. Monthly service and early termination fees apply. Visit for details.

The more connected devices you have, the quicker you will consume your Priority Data. Hughesnet is not recommended as a full-time video streaming replacement for TV service or console-based gaming activities because they quickly consume your Priority Data. Multiplayer games requiring rapid response are only supported with Hughesnet Fusion plans. VPNs, where you sign into a VPN application to access your work network directly, will significantly reduce service speeds. All plans are subject to the Hughesnet Subscriber Agreement.

**Each Hughesnet service plan is designed to deliver the download/upload speeds assigned to that specific plan, however, speeds and uninterrupted use are not guaranteed and may vary based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to the number of concurrent network users. Your Hughesnet experience will vary based on your proximity to the Wi-Fi source.
