Get the Quality of Life That you Expect

By: Julia Hall

There are lots of Internet service providers out there who claim to have the best service, value for the money, convenience, and flexibility, but only HughesNet has the technology to back it up. That's because HughesNet has totally foregone all of the mess associated with cables, fiber optics, and phone lines in favor of a truly dynamic and flexible way to bring high speed Internet access to people all over the country. So how exactly can HughesNet provide Internet service, let alone high speed Internet service, without wires? The answer is actually pretty simple: satellite technology.

Satellite technology has been around for decades and has grown into the most sophisticated and reliable way to move large amounts of information from one place to another and to do it quickly. That makes it the perfect type of technology for connecting to the Internet. After all, the Internet is largely about moving data quickly from one place to another, therefore satellite technology is the perfect compliment to the Internet. In fact, HughesNet takes advantage of the incredible bandwidth of satellite technology to provide its business customers with download speeds up to 2 megabytes per second and 1.5 megabytes per second for residential customers. With that much bandwidth, you can easily download everything from digital photos and MP3's all the way up to full length movies!

Another benefit of satellite technology is that it makes high speed access to the Internet available just about anywhere. For example, the position of HughesNet's satellites makes its high speed Internet services available all over . In fact the only places in that can't take advantage of satellite based Internet access are those that lack a clear view of the southern sky for some reason. You can be sure that those locations are few and far between.

One of the implications of the satellite technology that HughesNet uses to provide high speed Internet access is that it's available in more places than the next most widely available form of Internet access: dial up. That's because, while dial up networking will work over any phone line, there are still huge parts of the country where phone lines simply don't run. Of course with maximum speeds of 56 kilobytes per second for dial up, compared to between one and two megabytes per second for HughesNet , the two services really aren't even in the same ballpark.

Of course, one of the benefits of HughesNet is that if you can get high speed Internet access anywhere in the country, it means that you don't have to live in any specific place in order to run your home based business. It also opens up whole worlds of entertainment that you might otherwise never see if you live in a rural setting. In other words, if you want to get out of the city or out of the suburbs, high speed satellite Internet from HughesNet may be just the ticket you need to have the quality of life that you expect without all of the inconveniences of living in a crowded area.

Your high speed ISP in also comes with a variety of features that will make surfing the Internet easier than ever before and protect you from many of the ills that can be found on the web. These features include professional installation, complimentary email addresses complete with anti-virus measures and Spam filtering, and round the clock live tech support.
