If you are looking for an affordable satellite internet option, then HughesNet is undoubtedly one of the most viable options in rural areas. Hughes Network Systems has been around for quite a long time, catering to the different needs of its subscribers. Not only does HughesNet offer unmatched satellite internet service but it is also practically available in all the 50 states of the U.S.

The provider offers multiple plans with the same basic download and upload speeds of 25 Mbps and 3 Mbps respectively. If you are wondering what makes these plans different from each other, then let us tell you that it’s the data. No matter which plan you sign up for, you will get the same download and upload speeds with a different data allowance.

HughesNet New Plans That You Have Been Looking Forward to

Are you a movie buff? If your answer to this question is yes, we have good news for you: HughesNet has officially announced something big for its subscribers and it is… (Drumroll)… 50% more data. The provider has confirmed it has 50% more data than its previous plans. Which means that the baseline data of 10GB is increased to 15GB, and the top-tier plan's data cap of  50GB is increased to 75GB (or in some regions, it is available with 100GB). Yes, you read it right- you have now more data on HughesNet internet plans that you can burn through each month.

However, there is a slight increase in the price. You are likely to pay $5–$10 more per month depending on the plan you get. Albeit there is an increase in the price of HughesNet internet plans, you cannot ignore the fact that the hike is on the modest side. So, what are you waiting for? Subscribe to HughesNet and get ready to enjoy 50% more data.

Although HughesNet Gen5 data caps just got 50% bigger, each plan’s download speed is still the same: 25 Mbps. This download speed is considered sufficient for basic internet needs. With 50% more data, not only will you be able to watch your favorite TV shows and movies to your heart’s content but you will also do more of what you love online.

Now let’s take a quick look at what HughesNet internet has in store for you:
