    Satellite Internet, HughesNet Gen4 High-Speed Satellite Internet Provider

    HughesNet® is the high-speed Internet solution that's available to everyone in the contiguous United States with a clear view of the southern sky. HughesNet uses satellite technology, not your phone line, to give you a super-fast, always-on Internet connection. HughesNet gets you online instantly, lets you surf and open pages faster, and allows you to download files in a fraction of the time it takes on a dial-up modem.

    I have a HughesNet Link, here, that the Cannery used for a couple of years.... They dropped it 2 years ago, as they were always exceeding the Allowed bandwidth, and getting FRAPPED. It now is relegated to Hot Standby Mode, if our Main IP Link dies... I found that Starband works well for My Neighbors and I. I have two Starband IP Links, that have been up, using various Modems, since they started their SAT based IP Service. My Results... YMMV.....

    In a previous life, company I worked at used hughesnet. over limit bandwidth charges were killing us. plus 6hr connection resets were quite problematic for a business.

    We abandoned it after a couple of years as we were able to get a pair of T1 connections to the plant.

    My opinion, they suck unless you can't get anything else, then they are great.
