HughesNet Service Terms and Conditions

HughesNet® service is available in the contiguous U.S. with an unobstructed view of the southern sky, and its usage is subject to the Fair Access Policy. Actual speeds vary based on the amount of traffic on the Internet, content on a particular Website, or by the overall performance and configuration of your computer. Stated speeds and uninterrupted use of service are not guaranteed. Actual speeds will likely be lower than speed indicated during peak hours.

Listed speeds for the Power 200 Service Plan are available only through Hughes’ newest satellite. The majority of subscribers will have access to these faster speeds. However, approximately 1% of customer locations will have trees or other obstacles that block the signal from the satellite to the home. For these customers, the Power 200 Service Plan will not be available.

Professional installation is required. Monthly service fees apply. Sales, use, and personal property taxes are related surcharges and are not included.
