Michigan HughesNet Satellite Internet Offers
HughesNet just made surfing the internet in Michigan better than ever before in history for anyone that has been forced to suffer the aggravation of horrendous wait times using dial-up service. You can now view web pages as easily as flipping the pages of a book, shop online, send and receive emails and large files and view streaming videos with speeds of up to 50x faster than dial-up.
You don't need to live near cable or DSL networks any longer to benefit from high speed broadband. Satellite internet gives you hassle-free service that is always "on." No more tying up your telephone lines and getting bumped off the internet.
You get your satellite signal from geosynchronous satellites orbiting overhead so all you need is a clear view of the southern sky. Our most popular plans support both Windows and Mac operating systems with speeds from 1 Mbps to 15 Mbps°.
Broadband Availability in Michigan
The most widely used high speed broadband service type in Michigan is cable modem, with 86% of broadband subscribers using this type of service. Cable modem is only accessible through a cable line which is not a reasonable solution for many rural areas, as no cable service is available. The entire state of Michigan, including Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Kalamazoo and Saginaw, is served by only 73 different high speed broadband providers. These 73 high speed broadband providers use ADSL, SDSL, Cable Modem, Traditional Wireline and Fiber high speed line technologies, with nearly half of them consisting of cable modem lines. These lines serve 2.2 million households and 1.5 million businesses throughout the state of Michigan.
Much of Michigan's terrain is hilly and there are many extensive forests throughout the state. This makes it difficult and expensive to make wired high speed broadband available to many areas of Michigan. High speed broadband services via satellite offer many in rural areas a chance to recieve broadband service where no other options are available.
