How Does HughesNet® Data Work?
Learn how HughesNet data works and how to choose which HughesNet data plan is right for you.
How Does Hughesnet Data Work?
When you spend money on a laptop, tablet or smartphone, you want to be able to actually use it, right? That’s why finding a data plan that suits your needs is so important. For people who mostly use their computers for web surfing, email, and maybe the occasional game, a lower data package might be perfect!
However, laptops and mobile devices are so much more than they used to be. Most of us nowadays use our phones and tablets for absolutely everything – as a GPS, a camera, a mini streaming device, and a way to connect with the people we love on the various social media apps. If you’re one of these people, then it’s best to find a data package with a higher limit or even no limit at all.
Perks of Data Plans with HughesNet
With HughesNet Gen 5, there are so many perks you can expect such as:
- No Hard Data Limits – If you exceed your data limit for the month, HughesNet won’t charge you more AND we won’t cut you off. Your speeds will simply slow down until the next month, or you can purchase Data Tokens (extra data) to bring your speed back up to 25 Mbps.
- Monitor Your Usage – With the HughesNet Mobile App on your phone or on myHughesNet.com, you can monitor your monthly data usage by signing up for text alerts that will let you know if you’re approaching your data threshold.
