Hughes Network Systems, an EchoStar company, added new Hughesnet high-speed satellite internet plans that leverage capacity from the new Hughes JUPITER 3 satellite. This allows them to offer faster speeds, unlimited data and low-latency Hughesnet Fusion and Whole Home Wi-Fi.
Bringing unprecedented capacity for internet connectivity to the Americas, the Hughes JUPITER 3 is touted as the world’s largest commercial communications satellite. This ultra-high-density satellite features more than 300 spot beams that alleviate congestion and deliver a faster experience. The state-of-the-art ground system for JUPITER 3 has a new dedicated fiber backbone to reduce latency and artificial intelligence (AI) that automatically reroutes traffic around congestion. The JUPITER-powered Hughesnet plans feature download speeds up to 100 Mbps.
“Customers expect to be able to stream, videoconference and play games online,” said Peter Gulla, SVP, Hughes. “The new Hughesnet is designed to enable these applications with fast speeds, unlimited data and new low-latency Fusion plans. Since inventing satellite internet in the 1990s, Hughes has been dedicated to constantly innovating our service to meet the needs of customers beyond the reach of cable and fiber connectivity. The new Hughesnet is a fundamental reinvention of what satellite internet can be.”
Rural customers will also have access to new Hughesnet for Business plans optimized to support the online applications they need to expand and grow. All Hughesnet for Business plans include commercial installation, Express Repair Premium and 24/7 business-class phone support. Plus, businesses leveraging Fusion plans will have expanded capabilities for common cloud-based collaboration tools.
