Connecting your Agency Wherever You Work

Whether for isolated locations or to improve bandwidth and resiliency, government agencies need high-speed connectivity to support the growing number of applications. But what if you have locations beyond the reach of cable? Or where DSL and T1 lines are too slow and expensive? Even in today’s online digital world, there remain business and government agency locations in areas without access to cost-effective terrestrial broadband options. Hughes HighThroughput Satellite (HTS) Service solves this challenge.

Satellite Connectivity for your Primary, Backup and Fast Deployment Needs

Hughes HTS Service provides a secure high-speed Internet connection via satellite and makes for an ideal primary network when terrestrial options are not available. Since HTS is satellite-based, it can also be configured to provide true path diversity so your agency stays online even during landline outages. Even if you have a 4G wireless backup service, you still risk overpaying for overages and service outages due to storms, floods, or other disasters. HTS also allows your organization to quickly deploy new locations — long before a cable or telecom company can repair lines to your site.
