Hughes Unveils Three New High-Performance Broadband Plans for Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises

GERMANTOWN, Md., Nov. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES), the leader in broadband satellite solutions and services, today introduced three new HughesNet® Gen4 Business Internet service plans that deliver speeds up to 15 Mbps for small and medium-sized enterprises, ideal for locations where terrestrial high-speed Internet connections are either too expensive or unavailable.

(Logo: ) The new HughesNet Gen4 Business Internet plans provide download speeds of 10 Mbps or 15 Mbps and a choice of generous data allowances tailored to the needs of the business. The three service plans are Business 200, Business 300, and Business 400, with prices from $79.99 to $129.99 per month. All plans include HughesNet Express Repair Premium at no cost for the first year, which provides next business day onsite response time; free anti-virus software for up to three PCs; commercial installation; and business-grade support.

HughesNet Gen4 Business Internet provides broadband access in the continental U.S. and is ideal for sites without DSL service or where other options are expensive, such as T1 lines.

"Small and medium-sized businesses with limited or no access to landline broadband Internet deserve the same high quality and speed available in well-served areas," said Sam Baumel, vice president of SME at Hughes.
