Hughes Internet Access Solutions for Government - EchoStar® XVII


Does your agency need broadband but there is no suitable terrestrial service available? Then HughesNet Gen4 Internet Access Solutions are for you! Available nationwide, Hughes delivers reliable, high- speed connectivity for instant access to the critical information you need—without DSL, cable, or expensive T1 lines.

Speeds up to 15 Mbps

At speeds up to 15 Mbps, HughesNet Gen4 Solutions satisfy the growing need of agencies of all sizes to support even the most bandwidth-intensive applications, and to connect all workers—no matter where they are located.

Most Advanced Network of Satellites

Setting a new standard of excellence in satellite Internet, HughesNet Gen4 is built on the industry’s most advanced network of high-capacity satellites and on-the-ground equipment, including the new EchoStar® XVII satellite with JUPITERTM high-throughput technology, and SPACEWAY® 3, the world’s first satellite with onboard switching and routing.

Fully backed by a comprehensive 24/7 customer support system, Hughes ensures highly secure and reliable broadband connectivity around the clock—so your staff can make the most of their work day. And since it’s broadband over satellite—not over dial-up—your employees can work online without tying up the phone or fax line.

Easy Installation

Hughes utilizes its proven, two-way satellite technology to connect your agency to the Internet. A certified installer will connect a high-performance Hughes satellite modem to a computer or LAN at the specified location and to an external, compact dish, typically installed on the building. It only takes a short time to install, and the full power of broadband Internet access will be available for email, file transmittals, Web browsing, and point-of-sale transactions.
