Satellite Internet history

Satellite Internet was first developed for military use. Today, satellite technology is an important source of radio, TV, and Internet access for many people nationwide, and has proved to be an advantage for homeowners in remote areas that aren’t serviced by cable or fiber Internet providers. Subscribers in rural areas who switch from dial-up to HughesNet will enjoy increased speed, as well as an Internet connection that doesn’t tie up the phone line.

Why is HughesNet so widely available?

Satellite Internet like HughesNet works where other types of Internet don’t. Instead of depending on local cables and wires like dial-up, DSL and cable Internet services do, satellite Internet like HughesNet uses advanced satellite technology to provide great entertainment whenever it’s needed, regardless of location or population density. Other Internet service providers can’t compete with HughesNet availability due to infrastructure constraints.
