How much does HughesNet Internet cost?

HughesNet Internet offers plans that start at $59.99 per month for 10 GB of data and go up to $150.00 per month for 50 GB of data. All HughesNet Internet plans offer the same 25 Mbps speeds, so the difference between plan pricing depends on how much data you want. If the basic 10 GB plan isn’t enough, you can step up your plan to either 20 GB, 30 GB, or 50 GB per month.

HughesNet prices are locked for 24 months, which is a big advantage over HughesNet’s direct competitor, Viasat. Viasat increases pricing after the first three months, which can cause sticker shock. Both providers require a two-year contract.

You’ll also have to pay for HughesNet equipment. HughesNet Internet service requires a HughesNet Gen5 Wi-Fi modem and a satellite dish. The satellite dish is included as a part of HughesNet’s free standard installation, but it requires a two-year contract. Modem lease from HughesNet is $14.99 per month, or you can buy it outright for $449.98.

Is HughesNet unlimited?

Yes, there are no hard data limits with HughesNet. But it’s important to understand what “unlimited” means here. What if we told you that a car had unlimited mileage? That would be amazing. But what if this car could go only five miles per hour? Hmm . . . that’s not-so-amazing.

It’s the same with HughesNet. It will never disconnect you or charge you for going over your data limit, but you will experience reduced speeds of 1–3 Mbps once you hit your limit. That’s still enough speed to check email and use messaging apps, but expect buffering if you’re trying to stream the latest release from Netflix (or any other streaming platform).

Is HughesNet any good?

If you’re in a rural area and you need internet service, HughesNet is a good option. Most of its plans are cheaper than its direct competitor, Viasat. Like any service, the more you know about it going in, the more likely you are to be satisfied with your experience.

Is HughesNet any good?

HughesNet is a good option if you need internet service in a rural area. Most of its plans are cheaper than its direct competitor, Viasat, and it offers 25 Mbps speeds on every plan. Your price will also stay locked for the duration of your two-year contract. Like any service, the more you know about it going in, the more likely you are to be satisfied with your experience.

How does HughesNet work?

Because HughesNet is a satellite internet provider, it works by sending requests from your laptop, computer, smartphone, and more to a HughesNet satellite in space (22,000 miles from Earth!). The satellite informs the Hughes Network Operations Center (NOC) of your request and sends it back to your device through the same satellite, which then sends it to the HughesNet equipment at your home (the satellite dish and modem). It’s pretty amazing when you think about the distance your request travels, but it’s also the reason satellite internet has higher-than-average latency.

What internet speeds does HughesNet offer?

All HughesNet Internet speeds offer up to 25 Mbps of download speed and up to 3 Mbps of upload speed each month, which is fast enough for most internet activities. However, if you reach your monthly data allotment, your download speeds will slow significantly (1–3 Mbps). Your speeds can also vary depending on the time of day.

Even if you hit your monthly data allotment, you can still get 50 GB of full-speed data (25 Mbps) during the Bonus Zone, which is from 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. daily.

How much video can I stream with HughesNet?

  • 10 GB: 15 hrs. per month.
  • 20 GB: 30 hrs. per month.
  • 30 GB: 45 hrs. per month.
  • 50 GB: 72 hrs. per month.

HughesNet FAQ

Should I lease or buy a HughesNet modem?

For almost everyone, we’d recommend leasing a HughesNet modem. It reduces the upfront cost and won’t leave you stuck with outdated equipment in a few years. Also, contracts with HughesNet end after two years, so leasing will save you from getting stuck with equipment that can’t be used with another internet service provider if you decide to switch.

How much does HughesNet cost?

HughesNet plans start at $59.99 per month and go up to $150.00 per month. All HughesNet plans offer the same 25 Mbps speeds but different amounts of full-speed monthly data.

Is HughesNet unlimited internet?

HughesNet Internet is technically unlimited internet, but each plan has a limited amount of full-speed (25 Mbps) data. Once you reach your data allotment (which ranges from 10 GB to 50 GB per month), you can continue to access data without incurring overage fees, but it will be at much slower speeds (1–3 Mbps).

What is Bonus Zone data?

Bonus Zone data is 50 GB of full-speed (25 Mbps) data that’s available with all HughesNet plans, which you can use between 2:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. Bonus Zone data is extra data you get in addition to your plan’s monthly data allotment.

What’s the best plan from HughesNet?

HughesNet’s best plan is the 50 GB Data Plan, which gives you the most monthly data. In addition to 50 GB of data that you can use anytime, you also get 50 GB of Bonus Zone data that you can use from 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., so this plan gives you a combined 100 GB of full-speed data each month.
