Hughes Offers Fastest Consumer Satellite Internet Access Plan Ever

Aug. 6 2008 — Hughes Network Systems, LLC, a provider of broadband satellite networks and services, today announced the launch of the fastest consumer broadband satellite Internet access plan ever offered. The ElitePremium plan, operating over the HughesNet(R) service and utilizing affordable consumer equipment, features download speeds of up to 5 Mbps and will be available to order August 21, 2008.

ElitePremium joins the newly unveiled Elite and ElitePlus plans with download speeds of up to 2 Mbps and 3 Mbps, respectively and the popular consumer plans — Home, Pro, and ProPlus which feature recently increased download speeds of up to 1 Mbps, 1.2 Mbps and 1.6 Mbps, respectively.

“ElitePremium rounds out the most exciting range of satellite Internet access plans ever offered,” said Mike Cook, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Hughes. “Over the last few weeks we have enhanced the speeds across our full range of service plans. We are the only provider that offers consumers in underserved parts of the country such a comprehensive range of true broadband service options.”

The enhanced speed of the ElitePremium plan is made possible by the launch of Hughes’ SPACEWAY(TM) 3 satellite, the largest satellite in the US and the world’s first commercial satellite with on-board switching and routing. SPACEWAY 3 has the greatest total capacity of any commercial satellite, which fuels the faster speeds. SPACEWAY 3 was launched in August of 2007 and began serving customers in April of 2008.

With more than 400,000 subscribers, HughesNet is the leading broadband satellite Internet service in the United States. For more information about HughesNet services and the new ElitePremium plan, please visit or call 1-866-859-2268.
