More than More
HughesNet Gen5 has four new service plans with way more data right off the bat! And the increase in data is not the only improvement!
All plans also come with off-peak data in the Bonus Zone, so you can do more without using data from your service plan. With the Bonus Zone (2am-8am), you have up to 50 GB of free data every month that you can use for downloading large files like movies and system updates to your computer, tablet, or smart phone.
No Hard Data Limits
With HughesNet Gen5, hard data limits are a thing of the past. We're committed to helping customers stay connected no matter what. That means even if you exceed your plan data, there's no reason to stress! We won't cut you off or charge you more. You'll be able to stay connected at reduced speeds until the next billing cycle. Or, you can always use a Data Token to return to full speed.
HughesNet Gen5 automatically compresses and optimizes web content with built-in SmartTechnologies to make webpages load faster while using less of your data. HughesNet Gen5 also includes a video data-saver so you can watch more videos using less of your data. It adjusts data rates for streaming video to deliver DVD quality, so you can watch 3 times more video.††

**The HughesNet Gen5 service plans are designed to deliver download speeds of 25 Mbps and upload speeds of 3 Mbps, but individual customers may experience different speeds at different times of the day. Speeds and uninterrupted use are not guaranteed and may vary based on a variety of factors including: the configuration of your computer, the number of concurrent
users, network or Internet congestion, the capabilities and content of the websites you are accessing, network management practices as deemed necessary, and other factors. When you connect to the HughesNet service using Wi-Fi, your experience will vary based on your proximity to the Wi-Fi source and the strength of the signal.
†If you exceed your monthly plan data, you will experience reduced data speeds until the start of your next billing period. Reduced speeds will typically be in the range of 1 - 3 Mbps and may cause Web sites to load more slowly or affect the performance of certain activities, such as video streaming or large downloads/uploads. Visit legal.HughesNet.com for network management details.
††Streaming is optimized with video streams at DVD quality (up to 480p). For best performance, leave any video streaming applications at their default automatic resolution setting. Most video services are supported. Not all video sources are identifiable. 3 times is based on average HD bit rate of 3.6 Mbps vs. DVD quality at 1.1 Mbps.
