More Data

More Data Plans to Choose From

Our four service plans offer a wide range of data options for all types of users, making the choice easy! Find the satellite Internet plan that suits your typical Internet needs. When your needs change, changing your plan is easy.

Bonus Zone – More Data When You Need It

All plans also come with off-peak data in the Bonus Zone, so you can do more without using data from your service plan. With the Bonus Zone, get 50 GB/month of additional plan data to use during off-peak hours (2 am-8 am) that you can use for downloading large files and system updates to your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

No Hard Data Limits^

With HughesNet, hard data limits are a thing of the past. We’re committed to helping customers stay connected no matter what. That means even if you exceed your satellite Internet plan data, there’s no reason to stress! We won’t cut you off or charge you more. You’ll be able to stay connected at reduced speeds until the next billing cycle. If you need to increase your speed immediately, you can always use a Data Token to return to your fastest speed.

Data-saving features

HughesNet automatically compresses and optimizes web content with built-in SmartTechnologies to make web pages load faster while using less of your data. HughesNet also includes a video data-saver so you can watch more videos using less of your data. It adjusts data rates for streaming video to deliver DVD quality, so you can watch 3 times more videos.

Built-in Wi-Fi

Connect multiple wireless devices at home. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your satellite Internet system features the latest in Wi-Fi standards and technology (dual-band 802.11ac). Delivers 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz for the fastest speeds available and excellent coverage. Set up separate guest Wi-Fi for visitors to keep your home network more secure.
