Does HughesNet satellite internet have unlimited data?
Technically, HughesNet does have unlimited data because even after you reach your monthly data allotment, you can still use data (at reduced speeds) indefinitely, and will not pay any additional cost or penalty. You do have a limited amount of full speed data, however. If you select a HughesNet satellite internet plan that gives you 10 GB, the first 10 GB of data you use each month will be at the full speed of 25 Mbps. After you’ve reached 10 GB, your internet connection will be slowed to 1 to 3 Mbps. This is often not fast enough to support video streaming. For example, Netflix recommends a minimum connection speed of 3 Mbps for SD and 5 Mbps for HD. So if you use all your data early in the month, you might be stuck watching DVDs for the rest of the month.
