High Speed Satellite Internet: How HughesNet Works
It's tricky learning about a new technology, but HughesNet is easy enough for anyone to understand.
- After choosing your HughesNet plan, you then need to choose whether to purchase or lease equipment. A few days later a trained HughesNet installer will setup your system and ensure your satellite dish is receiving a strong signal.
- A satellite Internet connection is different because a signal is sent from your home to space and then back again. When you type in a URL, your satellite dish and modem work together to send a signal to the Hughes satellite in space.
- Once the signal reaches the Hughes satellite in space, it is relayed to the Hughes Network Operations Center, or NOC, located back on Earth.
- Once the NOC locates the URL information you first typed in, it is relayed back through the same path it just came from. Then, in only a matter of seconds the Web site you wanted to visit is right in front of you.
Even though the process sounds drawn out, from the time you type in a Web site to the time you are browsing it is only seconds. Call today to pick out your HughesNet plan and get started surfing the Web!
HughesNet satellite Internet access and satellite Internet speeds
When you get HughesNet, a trained HughesNet professional installer sets up your system and ensure you get fantastic satellite Internet access. The process looks something like this:
- Your installer will need to mount your satellite dish at least a few feet off the ground in a spot with an unobstructed view of the southern sky.
- Next, your installation professional sets up a coaxial cable in the room where your modem is.
- The installer routes two exterior coaxial cables from your HughesNet satellite dish outside to the interior coaxial cable jack.
- He or she will ensure that you have a strong satellite Internet connection and that you have the satellite Internet access that you need.

Leaving your phone line clear
One of the greatest strengths of high speed satellite Internet providers like Hughes to get satellite Internet access you don't need a phone line or even a cable line.
Cable Internet providers use your cable line, which can result in sluggish speeds. DSL and dial-up providers use your phone line. Dial-up is notorious for its slow and time-consuming startup and even slower speeds. DSL is almost as fast as cable, but also shares cable's connectivity issues.
Avoid the trouble altogether by looking into a safe and secure satellite Internet connection. Call today to find out more about why HughesNet is America's #1 choice for satellite Internet.
