State & Local Contracts......... HughesNet Gen5 for Government Available on NASPO ValuePoint Today Finally, all of your sites can get high-speed connectivity, even if you’re located beyond the reach of cable or are limited by slow DSL. Wherever you are, HughesNet Gen5 provides a reliable, secure, always-on network that gives you instant access to the mission-critical information and applications you need—email, payment transactions, web pages, sharing files, online videos, and more. Hughes is the first and only satellite broadband provider to be added to the NASPO ValuePoint contract, and subsequently, the first satellite Internet provider to offer FCC-defined broadband tier speeds of at least 25 Mbps from coast to coast. Hughes was selected to provide its HughesNet Gen5 Business Internet, which is now available to the states participating on the contract vehicle. HughesNet Gen5 is ideal for connecting government locations that are unserved or underserved by wireline services like cable and fiber. This includes park stations, rural offices, and environmental monitoring outposts. Satellite also adds an additional layer to emergency networks by serving as a lifeline when local infrastructure is compromised in the event of a natural disaster or network outage. How Does Satellite Broadband Work? Satellite broadband works just like other internet services for end-users. There is a small modem, with built-in wi-fi, that will be inside, connected to a computer. There is also a very small aperture terminal (VSAT) antenna that will go outside, mounted either on a pole or roof which will connect the computer and modem to the satellite network operations center (NOC) gateway. Right For Your Agency Every HughesNet Gen5 plan comes with great benefits, including fast speeds and built-in Wi-Fi, to help you get the most from your service. Keep connected with a generous amount of Daytime Data to help you get more done during standard business hours (8am–6pm), as well as a huge amount of Anytime Data that’s available to use 24/7. There are no hard data limits.** Even if you exceed your plan data, we won’t cut you off or charge or more. You can stay connected at reduced speeds until your next billing cycle. Plus, all plans include a commercial-grade .9 meter satellite antenna designed to provide high reliability for small office use, and a commercial installation package tailored for locations like park stations, schools, and offices.
