Hughes Reaches New Pinnacle in Subscriber Numbers

Underserved Consumers Increasingly Turn to Satellite Broadband for High-Speed Internet Access

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Consumer Electronics Show — Hughes
Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the global leader in broadband satellite
network solutions and services, today announced that the number of
HughesNet(TM) small business and residential subscribers surpassed 325,000
during the fourth quarter of 2006, an 18 percent growth over the same
period in 2005, demonstrating continued steady growth in satellite
broadband subscriptions among underserved consumers.

“There are a considerable number of people in communities across the
country who still are unable to receive high-speed Internet access through
cable, DSL, or other terrestrial means,” said Max Engel, Satellite and
Broadband analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “For those consumers, satellite
broadband offers an excellent alternative to their dial-up service.”

During 2006, the company successfully transitioned to the HughesNet
brand and launched a new subscriber platform and service plans, offering
subscribers enhanced quality, speeds and performance.

“The continued growth in our subscriber base is a testament to the
service quality we are delivering today,” said Mike Cook, senior vice
president of Hughes. “By focusing on our customers’ needs and service
innovation, we are satisfying our subscribers and further solidifying our
position as the leader in the satellite broadband market.”

HughesNet is the country’s leading two-way broadband satellite Internet
service, available anywhere in the contiguous United States with a clear
view of the southern sky. For more information about HughesNet, please
